RUNCON(1)                       User Commands                      RUNCON(1)

NAME         top

       runcon - run command with specified security context

SYNOPSIS         top

       runcon CONTEXT COMMAND [args]
       runcon [ -c ] [-u USER] [-r ROLE] [-t TYPE] [-l RANGE] COMMAND [args]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Run COMMAND with completely-specified CONTEXT, or with current or
       transitioned security context modified by one or more of LEVEL, ROLE,
       TYPE, and USER.

       If none of -c, -t, -u, -r, or -l, is specified, the first argument is
       used as the complete context.  Any additional arguments after COMMAND
       are interpreted as arguments to the command.

       Note that only carefully-chosen contexts are likely to successfully

       Run a program in a different SELinux security context.  With neither
       CONTEXT nor COMMAND, print the current security context.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options

              Complete security context

       -c, --compute
              compute process transition context before modifying

       -t, --type=TYPE

       -u, --user=USER

       -r, --role=ROLE
