runcon

run command with specified security context

runcon ,CONTEXT COMMAND /[,args/] runcon [ ,-c /] [,-u USER/] [,-r ROLE/] [,-t TYPE/] [,-l RANGE/] ,COMMAND /[,args/]

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.
