NAME         top

       sepol_check_context  -  Check  the  validity  of  a  security context
       against a binary policy.

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <sepol/sepol.h>

       int sepol_check_context(const char *context);

       int sepol_set_policydb_from_file(FILE *fp);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sepol_check_context checks the validity of a security context against
       a binary policy previously loaded from a file via
       sepol_set_policydb_from_file.  It is used by setfiles -c to validate
       a file contexts configuration against the binary policy upon policy
       builds.  For validating a context against the active policy on a
       SELinux system, use security_check_context from libselinux instead.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Returns 0 on success or -1 with errno set otherwise.
