sestatus — SELinux status tool

Synopsis

sestatus [-v] [-b]

This tool is used to get the status of a system running SELinux.

Description

This manual page describes the sestatus program.

This tool is used to get the status of a system running SELinux. It displays data about whether SELinux is enabled or disabled, location of key directories, and the loaded policy with its status as shown in the example:

> sestatus
SELinux status: enabled
SELinuxfs mount: /selinux
SELinux root directory: /etc/selinux
Loaded policy name: targeted
Current mode: permissive
Mode from config file: enforcing
Policy MLS status: enabled
Policy deny_unknown status: allow
Max kernel policy version: 26

sestatus can also be used to display:

-
The security context of files and processes listed in the /etc/sestatus.conf file. The format of this file is described in sestatus.conf(5).
-
The status of booleans.

Options

-v
Displays the contexts of files and processes listed in the /etc/sestatus.conf file. It also checks whether the file is a symbolic link, if so then the context of the target file is also shown.

The following contexts will always be displayed:
The current process context
The init process context
The controlling terminal file context
-b
Display the current state of booleans.

Files

/etc/sestatus.conf
