NAME

       avc_compute_create, avc_compute_member - obtain SELinux label for new object.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       #include <selinux/avc.h>

       int avc_compute_create(security_id_t ssid, security_id_t tsid,
                              security_class_t tclass, security_id_t *newsid);

       int avc_compute_member(security_id_t ssid, security_id_t tsid,
                              security_class_t tclass, security_id_t *newsid);

DESCRIPTION

       avc_compute_create  is  used  to  compute  a  SID  to  use  for labeling a new object in a
       particular class based on a SID pair.  This call is identical to  security_compute_create,
       but does not require converting from userspace SID's to contexts and back again.

       avc_compute_member  is used to compute a SID to use for labeling a polyinstantiated object
       instance of a  particular  class  based  on  a  SID  pair.   This  call  is  identical  to
       security_compute_member,  but does not require converting from userspace SID's to contexts
       and back again.

       These functions return a SID for the computed context in the memory referenced by sid.

RETURN VALUE

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

ERRORS

       EINVAL The tclass and/or the security  contexts  referenced  by  ssid  and  tsid  are  not
              recognized by the currently loaded policy.

       ENOMEM An attempt to allocate memory failed.
