mcstransd: MCS (Multiple Category System) daemon. Translates SELinux MCS/MLS labels to human readable form.

NAME

mcstransd - MCS (Multiple Category System) daemon. Translates SELinux MCS/MLS labels to human readable form.

SYNOPSIS

mcstransd

DESCRIPTION

This manual page describes the mcstransd program.

This daemon reads /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/setrans.conf and /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/secolors.conf configuration files, and communicates with libselinux via a socket in /var/run/setrans. It also watches for files created in /var/run/setrans and uses the contents of these files to generate translations to the names. For example writing a file /var/run/setrans/mydomain with content of s0:c1,c2 will cause mcstrans to translate s0:c1,c2 to mydomain.
