NAME         top

       virtual_image_context  -  The  SELinux  virtual machine image context
       configuration file

DESCRIPTION         top

       The virtual_image_context file contains a list of image contexts for
       use by the SELinux-aware virtulization API libvirt (see libvirtd(8)).

       selinux_virtual_image_context_path(3) will return the active policy
       path to this file. The default virtual image context file is:
              /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/contexts/virtual_image_context

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

FILE FORMAT         top

       Each line in the file consists of an entry as follows:
              user:role:type[:range]

       Where:
              user role type range
                     A user, role, type and optional range (for MCS/MLS)
                     separated by colons (:) that can be used as a virtual
                     image context.

EXAMPLE         top
