NAME

secolor.conf - The SELinux color configuration file

DESCRIPTION

This optional file controls the color to be associated to the context components associated to the raw context passed by selinux_raw_context_to_color(3), when context related information is to be displayed in color by an SELinux-aware application.
 
selinux_raw_context_to_color(3) obtains this color information from the active policy secolor.conf file as returned by selinux_colors_path(3).

FILE FORMAT

The file format is as follows:
color color_name = #color_mask
 
[...]
 
context_component string = fg_color_name bg_color_name
 
[...]
 
 
Where:
 
color
The color keyword. Each color entry is on a new line.
color_name
A single word name for the color (e.g. red).
color_mask
A color mask starting with a hash (#) that describes the hexadecimal RGB colors with black being #000000 and white being #ffffff.
context_component
The context component name that must be one of the following:
 
user, role, type or range
Each context_component string ... entry is on a new line.
string
This is the context_component string that will be matched with the raw context component passed by selinux_raw_context_to_color(3).
 
A wildcard '*' may be used to match any undefined string for the user, role and type context_component entries only.
 
fg_color_name
The color_name string that will be used as the foreground color. A color_mask may also be used.
bg_color_name
The color_name string that will be used as the background color. A color_mask may also be used.

EXAMPLES

Example 1 entries are:
color black = #000000
 
color green = #008000
 
color yellow = #ffff00
 
color blue = #0000ff
 
color white = #ffffff
 
color red = #ff0000
 
color orange = #ffa500
 
color tan = #D2B48C
 
user * = black white
 
role * = white black
 
type * = tan orange
 
range s0-s0:c0.c1023 = black green
 
range s1-s1:c0.c1023 = white green
 
range s3-s3:c0.c1023 = black tan
 
range s5-s5:c0.c1023 = white blue
 
range s7-s7:c0.c1023 = black red
 
range s9-s9:c0.c1023 = black orange
 
range s15:c0.c1023 = black yellow
 
 
Example 2 entries are:
color black = #000000
 
color green = #008000
 
color yellow = #ffff00
 
color blue = #0000ff
 
color white = #ffffff
 
color red = #ff0000
 
color orange = #ffa500
 
color tan = #d2b48c
 
user unconfined_u = #ff0000 green
 
role unconfined_r = red #ffffff
 
type unconfined_t = red orange
 
user user_u = black green
 
role user_r = white black
 
type user_t = tan red
 
user xguest_u = black yellow
 
role xguest_r = black red
 
type xguest_t = black green
 
user sysadm_u = white black
 
range s0:c0.c1023 = black white
 
user * = black white
 
role * = black white
 
type * = black white
