NAME

semodule - Manage SELinux policy modules.

 

SYNOPSIS

semodule [options]... MODE [MODES]...
 

DESCRIPTION

semodule is the tool used to manage SELinux policy modules, including installing, upgrading, listing and removing modules. semodule may also be used to force a rebuild of policy from the module store and/or to force a reload of policy without performing any other transaction. semodule acts on module packages created by semodule_package. Conventionally, these files have a .pp suffix (policy package), although this is not mandated in any way.
