SYNOPSIS

#include <selinux/selinux.h>

extern int security_load_booleans(char *path);
extern int security_get_boolean_names(char ***names, int *len);
extern int security_get_boolean_pending(const char *name);
extern int security_get_boolean_active(const char *name);
extern int security_set_boolean(const char *name, int value);
extern int security_commit_booleans(void);

 

DESCRIPTION

The SELinux policy can include conditional rules that are enabled or disabled based on the current values of a set of policy booleans. These policy booleans allow runtime modification of the security policy without having to load a new policy.

The SELinux API allows for a transaction based update. So you can set several boolean values and the commit them all at once.

security_load_booleans
Load policy boolean settings. Path may be NULL, in which case the booleans are loaded from the active policy boolean configuration file.

security_get_boolean_names
Returns a list of boolean names, currently supported by the loaded policy.

security_set_boolean
Sets the pending value for boolean

security_get_boolean_pending
Return pending value for boolean

security_get_boolean_active
Return active value for boolean

security_commit_booleans
Commit all pending values for the booleans.
