NAME

       sediff - SELinux policy difference tool

SYNOPSIS

       sediff [OPTIONS] [EXPRESSION] POLICY1 POLICY2

DESCRIPTION

       Determine the differences between two SELinux policies.

POLICY

       sediff supports loading SELinux policies in one of two formats.

              source:
                     A  single  text  file  containing  a  monolithic policy source. This file is
                     usually named policy.conf.

              binary:
                     A single file containing a binary policy. This  file  is  usually  named  by
                     version on Linux systems, for example, policy.30. This file is usually named
                     sepolicy on Android systems.

       Policies do not need to be the same format. If not provided, sediff will  print  an  error
       message and exit.

EXPRESSIONS

       The  user  may specify an expression listing the policy elements to differentiate.  If not
       provided, all supported policy elements are examined.

DIFFERENCES

       sediff categorizes differences in policy elements into one of three forms.

              added  The element exists only in the modified policy.

              removed
                     The element exists only in the original policy.

              modified
                     The  element  exists  in both policies but its semantic meaning has changed.
                     For example, a class is modified if one or more  permissions  are  added  or
                     removed.
