NAME

seusers - The SELinux GNU/Linux user to SELinux user mapping configuration file

DESCRIPTION

The seusers file contains a list GNU/Linux user to SELinux user mapping for use by SELinux-aware login applications such as PAM(8).
 
selinux_usersconf_path(3) will return the active policy path to this file. The default SELinux users mapping file is located at:
/etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/seusers
 
Where {SELINUXTYPE} is the entry from the selinux configuration file config (see selinux_config(5)).
 
getseuserbyname(3) reads this file to map a GNU/Linux user or group to an SELinux user.

FILE FORMAT

Each line of the seusers configuration file consists of the following:
 
[%group_id]|[user_id]:seuser_id[:range]
 
Where:
group_id|user_id
The GNU/Linux user id, or if preceded by the percentage ( %) symbol, then a GNU/Linux group id.
 
An optional entry set to __default__ can be provided as a fall back if required.
seuser_id
The SELinux user identity.
range
The optional level or range for an MLS/MCS policy.

EXAMPLE

# ./seusers
 
system_u:system_u:s0-s15:c0.c255
 
root:root:s0-s15:c0.c255
 
fred:user_u:s0
 
__default__:user_u:s0
 
%user_group:user_u:s0
