security_check_context(3) SELinux API documentationsecurity_check_context(3)

NAME         top

       security_check_context - check the validity of a SELinux context

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int security_check_context(const char *con);

       int security_check_context_raw(const char *con);

DESCRIPTION         top

       security_check_context() returns 0 if SELinux is running and the
       context is valid, otherwise it returns -1.

       security_check_context_raw() behaves identically to
       security_check_context() but does not perform context translation.
