       default_type - The SELinux default type configuration file

DESCRIPTION         top

       The default_type file contains entries that allow SELinux-aware
       applications such as newrole(1) to select a default type for a role
       if one is not supplied.

       selinux_default_type_path(3) will return the active policy path to
       this file. The default, default type file is:

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

       get_default_type(3) reads this file to determine a type for the
       active policy.

FILE FORMAT         top

       Each line within the default_type file is formatted with role:type
       entries where:
