Contexts

SELinux contexts are composed of 4 pieces: selinux user, role, type, and range.

unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c255
    user    :    role    :    type    :    range    

The selinux range is composed of a low and high level:

  s0-s0:c0.c255
 low-high 

Each level is composed a MLS sensitivity and a set of categories:

         s0:c0.c255
sensitivity:categories

Categories are can be specified individually:

c0,c5,c10

Or treated as an ordered set:

c0.c10

Where this would mean all categories between c0 and c10 (inclusive).

Displaying Contexts

Display the context of...

... your shell:

$ id -Z
unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c255

... a file:

$ ls -Z /bin/bash
system_u:object_r:shell_exec_t:s0 /bin/bash

... a process:

$ ps -Z
LABEL                             PID TTY          TIME CMD
unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c255 23912 pts/3 00:00:00 bash
unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c255 25101 pts/3 00:00:00 ps

Changing Contexts

Change the context of...

... a file:

$ touch /tmp/myfile
$ ls -Z /tmp/myfile
unconfined_u:object_r:user_tmp_t:s0 /tmp/myfile
$ chcon -t user_home_t /tmp/myfile
$ ls -Z /tmp/myfile
unconfined_u:object_r:user_home_t:s0 /tmp/myfile

... your shell:

$ id -Z
unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c255
$ newrole -r system_r -t unconfined_t
Password:
$ id -Z
unconfined_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c255

... a program when started (temporary):

$ runcon system_u:system_r:crond_t:s0:c0.c255 /bin/bash
$ id -Z
system_u:system_r:crond_t:s0:c0.c255

Resetting Contexts

Reset the context of...

... a file:

$ restorecon /tmp/myfile
