default_type(5)           SELinux configuration          default_type(5)

NAME         top

       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:
              /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/contexts/default_type

       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:
              role
                     The SELinux role.
              type
                     The domain type that is returned for this role.

EXAMPLE         top

       # ./contexts/default_type
       auditadm_r:auditadm_t
       user_r:user_t
