NAME

       getseuserbyname - get SELinux username and level for a given Linux username

SYNOPSIS

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int getseuserbyname(const char *linuxuser, char **selinuxuser, char **level);

DESCRIPTION

       getseuserbyname  retrieves the SELinux username and security level associated with a given
       Linux username.  The SELinux username and security level  can  then  be  passed  to  other
       libselinux      functions      such     as     get_ordered_context_list_with_level     and
       get_default_context_with_level.

       The returned SELinux username and level should be freed by the caller using free.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, 0 is returned.  On failure, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.

       The errors documented for the stat(2) system call are also applicable here.
