checkPasswdAccess(3) -- Linux man page
NAMEsecurity_compute_av, security_compute_create, security_compute_relabel, security_compute_user - query the SE Linux policy database in the kernel.
int security_compute_av(security_context_t scon, security_context_t tcon, security_class_t tclass, access_vector_t requested, struct av_decision *avd);
int security_compute_create(security_context_t scon, security_context_t tcon, security_class_t tclass, security_context_t *newcon);
int security_compute_relabel(security_context_t scon, security_context_t tcon, security_class_t tclass, security_context_t *newcon);
int security_compute_user(security_context_t scon, const char *username, security_context_t **con);
int checkPasswdAccess(access_vector_t requested);
DESCRIPTIONsecurity_compute_av queries whether the policy permits the source context scon to access the target context tcon via class tclass with the requested access vector. See the cron source for a usage example.
security_compute_create is used to compute a context to use for labeling a new object in a particular class based on a SID pair.
security_compute_relabel is used to compute the new context to use when relabeling an object, it is used in the pam_selinux.so source and the newrole source to determine the correct label for the tty at login time, but can be used for other things.
security_compute_user is used to determine the set of user contexts that can be reached from a source context. Is mainly used by get_ordered_context_list.
checkPasswdAccess This functions is a helper functions that allows you to check for a permission in the passwd class. checkPasswdAccess uses getprevcon() for the source and target security contexts.
RETURN VALUE0 for success and on error -1 is returned.
