NAME         top

       secolor.conf - The SELinux color configuration file

DESCRIPTION         top

       This optional file controls the color to be associated to the
       context components associated to the raw context passed by
       selinux_raw_context_to_color(3), when context related information
       is to be displayed in color by an SELinux-aware application.

       selinux_raw_context_to_color(3) obtains this color information
       from the active policy secolor.conf file as returned by

FILE FORMAT         top

       The file format is as follows:
              color color_name = #color_mask

              context_component string = fg_color_name bg_color_name

              The color keyword. Each color entry is on a new line.
              A single word name for the color (e.g. red).
              A color mask starting with a hash (#) that describes the
              hexadecimal RGB colors with black being #000000 and white
              being #ffffff.
              The context component name that must be one of the
                     user, role, type or range
              Each context_component string ...  entry is on a new line.
              This is the context_component string that will be matched
              with the raw context component passed by
              A wildcard '*' may be used to match any undefined string
              for the user, role and type context_component entries

              The color_name string that will be used as the foreground
              color.  A color_mask may also be used.
              The color_name string that will be used as the background
              color.  A color_mask may also be used.
