NAME

       checkpolicy - SELinux policy compiler


SYNOPSIS

       checkpolicy   [-b]   [-d]   [-M]   [-c   policyvers]  [-o  output_file]
       [input_file]


DESCRIPTION

       This manual page describes the checkpolicy command.

       checkpolicy is a program that checks and compiles  a  SELinux  security
       policy  configuration  into  a binary representation that can be loaded
       into the kernel.  If no input file name is specified, checkpolicy  will
       attempt to read from policy.conf or policy, depending on whether the -b
       flag is specified.



OPTIONS

       -b     Read an existing binary policy file rather than  a  source  pol-
              icy.conf file.

       -d     Enter debug mode after loading the policy.

       -M     Enable the MLS policy when checking and compiling the policy.

       -o filename
              Write a binary policy file to the specified filename.

       -c policyvers
              Specify the policy version, defaults to the latest.
