getsebool command is a Linux utility that is used to query the boolean value of each rule in the SElinux policy. SElinux is a Linux kernel security module that provides a mechanism for enforcing access control policies on Linux systems. SElinux policies are defined using a set of rules, and the
getsebool command can be used to query the boolean value of each rule in the policy.
getsebool command is used to query the boolean value of each rule in the SElinux policy. The syntax for the command is as follows:
getsebool [OPTION]... [BOOLEAN]...
OPTION argument specifies any options that you want to use with the command, while the
BOOLEAN argument specifies the name of the boolean that you want to query.
For example, to query the boolean value of the
httpd_can_network_connect rule in the SElinux policy, you would use the following command:
This command will output either
off, depending on the current boolean value of the
You can also use the
getsebool command to list all of the available booleans in the SElinux policy. To do this, you would use the following command:
This command will output a list of all of the available booleans in the SElinux policy, along with their current boolean values.
The following table lists all of the available options for the
||Display a help message and exit.|
||Display version information and exit.|
||List all of the available booleans in the SElinux policy, along with their current boolean values.|
||Display the name of the boolean, but do not display its current boolean value.|
||Compare the current boolean value of the specified boolean with its default value.|
||Query the boolean value of the specified file context.|
||Query the boolean value of the specified policy.|
If you are having trouble using the
getsebool command, there are a few things that you can try:
- Make sure that you are using the correct syntax for the command. The syntax for the command is
getsebool [OPTION]... [BOOLEAN]....
- Check the SElinux policy to make sure that the boolean that you are trying to query exists.
- Make sure that you have the necessary permissions to query the SElinux policy. You may need to be logged in as the root user or have sudo privileges.
getseboolcommand is part of the
policycoreutilspackage, which is typically installed on most Linux systems by default.
- The boolean values returned by the
getseboolcommand are case-sensitive. This means that
ONare not equivalent.
getseboolcommand can be used in conjunction with other SElinux utilities, such as
semanage, to manage the SElinux policy on a Linux system.
