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.
Complete security context
- -c, --compute
compute process transition context before modifying
- -t, --type=TYPE
type (for same role as parent)
- -u, --user=USER
- -r, --role=ROLE
- -l, --range=RANGE
