chcon


SYNOPSIS
       chcon [OPTION]... CONTEXT FILE...
       chcon [OPTION]... [-u USER] [-r ROLE] [-l RANGE] [-t TYPE] FILE...
       chcon [OPTION]... --reference=RFILE FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       Change the security context of each FILE to CONTEXT.  With --reference,
       change the security context of each FILE to that of RFILE.

       -h, --no-dereference
              affect symbolic links instead of any referenced file

       --reference=RFILE
              use RFILE's security context rather than  specifying  a  CONTEXT
              value

       -R, --recursive
              operate on files and directories recursively

       -v, --verbose
              output a diagnostic for every file processed

       -u, --user=USER
              set user USER in the target security context

       -r, --role=ROLE
              set role ROLE in the target security context

       -t, --type=TYPE
              set type TYPE in the target security context

       -l, --range=RANGE
              set range RANGE in the target security context

       The  following  options modify how a hierarchy is traversed when the -R
       option is also specified.  If more than  one  is  specified,  only  the
       final one takes effect.

       -H     if  a  command  line argument is a symbolic link to a directory,
              traverse it

       -L     traverse every symbolic link to a directory encountered

       -P     do not traverse any symbolic links (default)

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
