NAME

       selabel_lookup - obtain SELinux security context from a string label.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       #include <selinux/label.h>

       int selabel_lookup(struct selabel_handle *hnd,
                          security_context_t *context,

                          const char *key, int type);

       int selabel_lookup_raw(struct selabel_handle *hnd,
                              security_context_t *context,

                              const char *key, int type);

DESCRIPTION

       selabel_lookup performs a lookup operation on the handle hnd, returning
       the result in the memory pointed to by context, which must be freed  by
       the  caller  using  freecon(3).   The  key  and type parameters are the
       inputs to the lookup operation and are  interpreted  according  to  the
       specific backend that handle is open on.

       selabel_lookup_raw  behaves  identically to selabel_lookup but does not
       perform context translation.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned  and  errno  is
       set appropriately.

ERRORS

       ENOENT No context corresponding to the input key and type was found.

       EINVAL The  key  and/or  type  inputs are invalid, or the context being
              returned failed validation.

       ENOMEM An attempt to allocate memory failed.
