NAME         top

       local.users - The SELinux local users configuration file

DESCRIPTION         top

       The file contains local user definitions in the form of policy
       language user statements and is only found on older SELinux systems
       as it has been deprecated and replaced by the semange(8) services.

       This file is only read by selinux_mkload_policy(3) when SETLOCALDEFS
       in the SELinux config file (see selinux_config(5)) is set to 1.

       selinux_users_path(3) will return the active policy path to the
       directory where this file is located. The default local users file

       Where {SELINUXTYPE} is the entry from the selinux configuration file
       config (see selinux_config(5)).

FILE FORMAT         top

       The file consists of one or more entries terminated with ';', each on
       a separate line as follows:
              user seuser_id roles role_id [[level level] [range range]];

                     The user keyword.
                     The SELinux user identifier.
                     The roles keyword.
                     One or more previously declared role identifiers.
                     Multiple role identifiers consist of a space separated
                     list enclosed in braces '{}'.
                     If MLS/MCS is configured, the level keyword.
                     The users default security level. Note that only the
                     sensitivity component of the level (e.g. s0) is
                     If MLS/MCS is configured, the range keyword.
                     The current and clearance levels that the user can run.
                     These are separated by a hyphen '-' as shown in the
                     EXAMPLE section.
