NAME

       user_contexts - The SELinux user contexts configuration files

DESCRIPTION

       These  optional  user context configuration files contain entries that allow SELinux-aware
       login applications such as PAM(8) (running in their own process context), to determine the
       context that a users login session should run under.

       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)

       There can be one file for each SELinux user configured on the system. The  file   path  is
       formed  using  the  path  returned by selinux_user_contexts_path(3) for the active policy,
       with the SELinux user name appended, for example:
              /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/contexts/users/unconfined_u
              /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/contexts/users/xguest_u

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

       These files contain context information as described in the FILE FORMAT section.

FILE FORMAT

       Each line in the user context configuration file consists of the following:
              login_process user_login_process

       Where:
              login_process
                     This consists of a role:type[:range] entry that represents the login process
                     context.
              user_login_process
                     This consists of a role:type[:range] entry that represents  the  user  login
                     process context.

EXAMPLE

       system_r:initrc_t:s0          xguest_r:xguest_t:s0
       system_r:local_login_t:s0     xguest_r:xguest_t:s0
       system_r:remote_login_t:s0    xguest_r:xguest_t:s0
       system_r:sshd_t:s0            xguest_r:xguest_t:s0
       system_r:xdm_t:s0             xguest_r:xguest_t:s0
       xguest_r:xguest_t:s0          xguest_r:xguest_t:s0
