NAME

       setfilecon, fsetfilecon, lsetfilecon - set SELinux security context of a file

SYNOPSIS

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int setfilecon(const char *path, security_context_t con);

       int lsetfilecon(const char *path, security_context_t con);

       int fsetfilecon(int fd, security_context_t con);

DESCRIPTION

       setfilecon sets the security context of the file system object.

       lsetfilecon  is  identical to setfilecon, except in the case of a symbolic link, where the
       link itself has it's context set, not the file that it refers to.

       fsetfilecon is identical to setfilecon, only the open  file  pointed  to  by  filedes  (as
       returned by open(2)) has it's context set in place of path.

RETURN VALUE

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

       If  there is insufficient space remaining to store the extended attribute, errno is set to
       either ENOSPC, or EDQUOT if quota enforce- ment was the cause.

       If extended attributes are not supported by the filesystem, or are dis-  abled,  errno  is
       set to ENOTSUP.

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