NAME

       sestatus - SELinux status tool

SYNOPSIS

       sestatus [-v] [-b]

       This tool is used to get the status of a system running SELinux.

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page describes the sestatus program.

       This  tool  is  used to get the status of a system running SELinux. It displays data about
       whether SELinux is enabled or disabled, location of key directories, and the loaded policy
       with its status as shown in the example:
              > sestatus
              SELinux status:              enabled
              SELinuxfs mount:             /selinux
              SELinux root directory:      /etc/selinux
              Loaded policy name:          targeted
              Current mode:                permissive
              Mode from config file:       enforcing
              Policy MLS status:           enabled
              Policy deny_unknown status:  allow
              Memory protection checking:  actual (secure)
              Max kernel policy version:   26

       sestatus can also be used to display:

              -   The  security  context  of files and processes listed in the /etc/sestatus.conf
                  file. The format of this file is described in sestatus.conf(5).

              -   The status of booleans.

OPTIONS

       -v
              Displays the contexts of files and processes listed in the /etc/sestatus.conf file.
              It  also  checks whether the file is a symbolic link, if so then the context of the
              target file is also shown.

              The following contexts will always be displayed:
                     The current process context
                     The init process context
                     The controlling terminal file context

       -b
              Display the current state of booleans.
