runcon - run command with specified security context  

SYNOPSIS

runcon [-c] [-t TYPE] [-l LEVEL] [-u USER] [-r ROLE] COMMAND [ARGS...]

or

runcon CONTEXT COMMAND [args...]


 

DESCRIPTION

Run COMMAND with completely-specified CONTEXT, or with current or transitioned security context modified by one or more of LEVEL, ROLE, TYPE, and USER.

-c
compute process transition before modifying context
-t
change current type to the specified type
-l
change current level range to the specified range
-r
change current role to the specified role
-u
change current user to the specified user
--
The -- flag indicates that runcon should stop processing command line arguments. Further arguments will be passed to COMMAND.

If none of -c, -t, -u, -r, or -l, is specified, the first argument is used as the complete context.

Note that only carefully-chosen contexts are likely to successfully run.
