       --parent-fs

       --parent-key
              gets the key context from the parent of the current
              process

       Additional argument CONTEXT may be provided and will be used if
       no options have been specified to make secon get its context from
       another source.  If that argument is - then the context will be
       read from stdin.
       If there is no argument, secon will try reading a context from
       stdin, if that is not a tty, otherwise secon will act as though
       --self had been passed.

       If none of --user, --role, --type, --level or --mls-range is
       passed.  Then all of them will be output.
