NAME

       default_contexts - The SELinux default contexts configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       The  default  contexts  configuration  file  default_contexts  contains entries that allow
       SELinux-aware login applications such as PAM(8)

       SELinux-aware login applications generally use one or more  of  the  following  libselinux
       functions that read these files from the active policy path:
              get_default_context(3)
              get_ordered_context_list(3)
              get_ordered_context_list_with_level(3)
              get_default_context_with_level(3)
              get_default_context_with_role(3)
              get_default_context_with_rolelevel(3)
              query_user_context(3)
              manual_user_enter_context(3)

       The  default  context  configuration  file  path  for  the  active  policy  is returned by
       selinux_default_contexts_path(3). The default, default contexts file is:
              /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/contexts/default_contexts

       Where {SELINUXTYPE}  is  the  entry  from  the  selinux  configuration  file  config  (see
       selinux_config(5)).

FILE FORMAT

       Each line in the default configuration file consists of the following:
              login_process user_login_process [user_login_process] ...

       Where:
              login_process
                     This consists of a role:type[:range] entry that represents the login process
                     context that are defined in the policy.
              user_login_process
                     This consists of one or more role:type[:range] entries  that  represent  the
                     user login process context defined in the policy.
