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.
