NAME         top

       security_getenforce, security_setenforce, security_deny_unknown - get
       or set the enforcing state of SELinux

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int security_getenforce(void);

       int security_setenforce(int value);

       int security_deny_unknown(void);

DESCRIPTION         top

       security_getenforce() returns 0 if SELinux is running in permissive
       mode, 1 if it is running in enforcing mode, and -1 on error.

       security_setenforce() sets SELinux to enforcing mode if the value 1
       is passed in, and sets it to permissive mode if 0 is passed in.  On
       success 0 is returned, on error -1 is returned.

       security_deny_unknown() returns 0 if SELinux treats policy queries on
       undefined object classes or permissions as being allowed, 1 if such
       queries are denied, and -1 on error.
