NAME
       chcon - change file security context

SYNOPSIS
       chcon [OPTION]... CONTEXT FILE...
       chcon [OPTION]... [-u USER] [-r ROLE] [-l RANGE]	[-t TYPE] FILE...
       chcon [OPTION]... --reference=RFILE FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       Change  the  SELinux  security  context	of each	FILE to	CONTEXT.  With
       --reference, change the security	context	of each	FILE to	that of	RFILE.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are	mandatory  for	short  options
       too.

       --dereference
	      affect the referent of each symbolic link	(this is the default),
	      rather than the symbolic link itself

       -h, --no-dereference
	      affect symbolic links instead of any referenced file

       -u, --user=USER
	      set user USER in the target security context

       -r, --role=ROLE
	      set role ROLE in the target security context

       -t, --type=TYPE
	      set type TYPE in the target security context

       -l, --range=RANGE
	      set range	RANGE in the target security context

       --no-preserve-root
	      do not treat '/' specially (the default)

       --preserve-root
	      fail to operate recursively on '/'

       --reference=RFILE
	      use RFILE's security context rather than	specifying  a  CONTEXT
	      value

       -R, --recursive
	      operate on files and directories recursively

       -v, --verbose
	      output a diagnostic for every file processed

       The  following  options modify how a hierarchy is traversed when	the -R
       option is also specified.  If more than one is specified, only the  fi-
       nal one takes effect.

       -H     if  a  command  line argument is a symbolic link to a directory,
	      traverse it

       -L     traverse every symbolic link to a	directory encountered

       -P     do not traverse any symbolic links (default)

       --help display this help	and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit
