       security_set_boolean,         security_commit_booleans,        security_get_boolean_names,
       security_get_boolean_active,  security_get_boolean_pending  -  routines  for  manipulating
       SELinux boolean values


       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int security_get_boolean_names(char ***names, int *len);

       int security_get_boolean_pending(const char *name);

       int security_get_boolean_active(const char *name);

       int security_set_boolean(const char *name, int value);

       int security_set_boolean_list(size_t boolcnt, SELboolean *boollist, int permanent);

       int security_commit_booleans(void);


       The SELinux policy can include conditional rules that are enabled or disabled based on the
       current values of  a  set  of  policy  booleans.   These  policy  booleans  allow  runtime
       modification of the security policy without having to load a new policy.

       The  SELinux  API  allows  for  a transaction based update. So you can set several boolean
       values and then commit them all at once.

       security_get_boolean_names() provides a list of boolean names, currently supported by  the
       loaded policy.

       security_get_boolean_pending() returns the pending value for boolean or -1 on failure.

       security_get_boolean_active() returns the active value for boolean or -1 on failure.

       security_set_boolean() sets the pending value for boolean

       security_set_boolean_list()  saves  a  list of booleans in a single transaction. Note that
       the int permanent flag is deprecated and should be set to zero.

       security_commit_booleans() commits all pending values for the booleans.


       Where not otherwise stated, functions described in this manual page return zero on success
       or -1 on error.
