Name

runcon — run command with specified security context

Synopsis

runcon CONTEXT COMMAND [args]

runcon [−c] [ −u USER ] [ −r ROLE ] [ −t TYPE ] [ −l RANGE ] COMMAND [args]

DESCRIPTION

Run COMMAND with completely-specified CONTEXT, or with current or transitioned security context modified by one or more of LEVEL, ROLE, TYPE, and USER.

If none of −c, −t, −u, −r, or −l, is specified, the first argument is used as the complete context. Any additional arguments after COMMAND are interpreted as arguments to the command.

Note that only carefully-chosen contexts are likely to successfully run.

Run a program in a different SELinux security context. With neither CONTEXT nor COMMAND, print the current security context.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
