NAME

default_type - The SELinux default type configuration file

DESCRIPTION

The default_type file contains entries that allow SELinux-aware applications such as newrole(1) to select a default type for a role if one is not supplied.
 
selinux_default_type_path(3) will return the active policy path to this file. The default, default type file is:
/etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/contexts/default_type
 
Where {SELINUXTYPE} is the entry from the selinux configuration file config (see selinux_config(5)).
 
get_default_type(3) reads this file to determine a type for the active policy.

FILE FORMAT

Each line within the default_type file is formatted with role: type entries where:
role
The SELinux role.
type
The domain type that is returned for this role.

EXAMPLE

# ./contexts/default_type
 
auditadm_r:auditadm_t
 
user_r:user_t
