DESCRIPTION

       This manual page describes the restorecon program.

       This  program  is  primarily used to set the security context (extended
       attributes) on one or more files.

       It can be run at any time to correct errors, to  add  support  for  new
       policy,  or  with the -n option it can just check whether the file con-
       texts are all as you expect.
