SYNOPSIScheckpolicy [-b] [-C] [-d] [-M] [-c policyvers] [-o output_file] [input_file]
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page describes the checkpolicy command.
checkpolicy is a program that checks and compiles a SELinux security policy configuration into a binary representation that can be loaded into the kernel. If no input file name is specified, checkpolicy will attempt to read from policy.conf or policy, depending on whether the -b flag is specified.
- Read an existing binary policy file rather than a source policy.conf file.
- Write CIL policy file rather than binary policy file.
- Enter debug mode after loading the policy.
- Enable the MLS policy when checking and compiling the policy.
- -o,--output filename
- Write a binary policy file to the specified filename.
- -c policyvers
- Specify the policy version, defaults to the latest.
- Specify the target platform (selinux or xen).
- -U,--handle-unknown <action>
- Specify how the kernel should handle unknown classes or permissions (deny, allow or reject).
