booleans - The SELinux booleans configuration files


The booleans file, if present contains booleans to support a specific distribution. The booleans.local file, if present contains locally generated booleans. Both files contain a list of boolean names and their associated values. Generally the booleans and/or booleans.local files are not present (they have been depre‐ cated). However if there is an SELinux-aware application that uses the libselinux func‐ tions listed below, then these files may be present: security_set_boolean_list(3) Writes a booleans.local file if flag permanent = 1. security_load_booleans(3) Looks for a booleans and/or booleans.local file at selinux_booleans_path(3) unless a specific path is specified as a parameter. booleans(8) has details on booleans and setsebool(8) describes how booleans can now be set persistent across reboots. selinux_booleans_path(3) will return the active policy path to these files. The default boolean files are: /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/booleans /etc/selinux/{SELINUXTYPE}/booleans.local Where {SELINUXTYPE} is the entry from the selinux configuration file config (see selinux_config(5)).


Both boolean files have the same format and contain one or more boolean names and their value. The format is: boolean_name value Where: boolean_name The name of the boolean. value The default setting for the boolean. This can be one of the following: true | false | 1 | 0 Note that if SETLOCALDEFS is set in the SELinux config file (see selinux_config(5)), then selinux_mkload_policy(3) will check for a booleans.local file in the selinux_bool‐ eans_path(3) and also a local.users file (see local.users(5)) in the selinux_users_path(3).
