       sestatus - SELinux status tool

SYNOPSIS         top

       This tool is used to get the status of a system running SELinux.

DESCRIPTION         top

       This manual page describes the sestatus program.

       This tool is used to get the status of a system running SELinux. It
       displays data about whether SELinux is enabled or disabled, location
       of key directories, and the loaded policy with its status as shown in
       the example:
              > sestatus
              SELinux status:              enabled
              SELinuxfs mount:             /selinux
              SELinux root directory:      /etc/selinux
              Loaded policy name:          targeted
              Current mode:                permissive
              Mode from config file:       enforcing
              Policy MLS status:           enabled
              Policy deny_unknown status:  allow
              Max kernel policy version:   26

       sestatus can also be used to display:

              -   The security context of files and processes listed in the
                  /etc/sestatus.conf file. The format of this file is
                  described in sestatus.conf(5).

              -   The status of booleans.

OPTIONS         top

       -v
              Displays the contexts of files and processes listed in the
              /etc/sestatus.conf file. It also checks whether the file is a
              symbolic link, if so then the context of the target file is
              also shown.

              The following contexts will always be displayed:
                     The current process context
                     The init process context
                     The controlling terminal file context

       -b
              Display the current state of booleans.
