NAME

       getfscreatecon, setfscreatecon - get or set the SELinux security context used for creating
       a new file system object.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int getfscreatecon(security_context_t *con);

       int setfscreatecon(security_context_t context);

DESCRIPTION

       getfscreatecon retrieves the context used for creating a new  file  system  object.   This
       returned  context  should  be freed with freecon if non-NULL.  getfscreatecon sets *con to
       NULL if no fscreate context has been explicitly set by the program (i.e. using the default
       policy behavior).

       setfscreatecon  sets  the context used for creating a new file system object.  NULL can be
       passed to setfscreatecon to reset to the default policy behavior.  The fscreate context is
       automatically  reset  after  the  next  execve,  so  a  program doesn't need to explicitly
       sanitize it upon startup.

       setfscreatecon can be applied prior to library functions that internally perform  an  file
       creation, in order to set an file context on the objects.

       Note:  Signal  handlers  that  perform  an  setfscreate must take care to save, reset, and
       restore the fscreate context to avoid unexpected behavior.

RETURN VALUE

       On error -1 is returned.  On success 0 is returned.
