sestatus.conf(5)       sestatus configuration file      sestatus.conf(5)

NAME         top

       sestatus.conf - The sestatus(8) configuration file.

DESCRIPTION         top

       The sestatus.conf file is used by the sestatus(8) command with
       the -v option to determine what file and process security
       contexts should be displayed.

       The fully qualified path name of the configuration file is:
              /etc/sestatus.conf

       The file consists of two optional sections as described in the
       FILE FORMAT section. Whether these exist or not, the following
       will always be displayed:
              The current process context
              The init process context
              The controlling terminal file context

FILE FORMAT         top

       The format consists of two optional sections as follows:
              [files]
              file_name
              [file_name]
              ...

              [process]
              executable_file_name
              [executable_file_name]
              ...

       Where:
              [files]
                     The start of the file list block.
              file_name
                     One or more fully qualified file names, each on a
                     new line will that will have its context displayed.
                     If the file does not exist, then it is ignored. If
                     the file is a symbolic link, then sestatus -v will
                     also display the target file context.

              [process]
                     The start of the process list block.
              executable_file_name
                     One or more fully qualified executable file names
                     that should it be an active process, have its
                     context displayed. Each entry is on a new line.
