checkpolicy - SELinux policy compiler
checkpolicy [-b[F]] [-C] [-d] [-U handle_unknown (allow,deny,reject)] [-M] [-c policyvers] [-o output_file|-] [-S] [-t target_platform (selinux,xen)] [-O] [-E] [-V] [input_file]
This 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 policy.conf file rather than binary policy file. Can only be used with binary policy file.
- Write CIL policy file rather than binary policy file.
- Enter debug mode after loading the policy.
- -U,--handle-unknown <action>
- Specify how the kernel should handle unknown classes or permissions (deny, allow or reject).
- Enable the MLS policy when checking and compiling the policy.
- -c policyvers
- Specify the policy version, defaults to the latest.
- -o,--output filename
- Write a policy file (binary, policy.conf, or CIL policy) to the specified filename. If - is given as filename, write it to standard output.
- Sort ocontexts before writing out the binary policy. This option makes output of checkpolicy consistent with binary policies created by semanage and secilc.
- Specify the target platform (selinux or xen).
- Optimize the final kernel policy (remove redundant rules).
- Treat warnings as errors
- Show version information.
- Show usage information.
