runcon(1) -- Linux man page

 

NAME

runcon - run command with specified security context  

SYNOPSIS

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

or

runcon CONTEXT COMMAND [args...]


 

DESCRIPTION

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

If none of -t, -u, -r, or -l, is specified, the first argument is used as the complete context. Any additional arguments after COMMAND are interpreted as arguments to the command.

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