       semanage  is  used  to  configure  certain  elements  of  SELinux policy without requiring
       modification to or recompilation from policy sources.   This  includes  the  mapping  from
       Linux  usernames  to  SELinux user identities (which controls the initial security context
       assigned to Linux users when they login and bounds their authorized role set) as  well  as
       security context mappings for various kinds of objects, such as network ports, interfaces,
       and nodes (hosts) as well as the file context mapping. See the EXAMPLES section below  for
       some  examples  of  common  usage.   Note  that  the semanage login command deals with the
       mapping from Linux usernames (logins) to SELinux user identities, while the semanage  user
       command  deals  with the mapping from SELinux user identities to authorized role sets.  In
       most cases, only the former mapping needs to be adjusted by the administrator; the  latter
       is principally defined by the base policy and usually does not require modification.
