Output of ps -Z


Hi team,

A per my knowledge "ps" is for displaying the present processes which in running....
if I give "ps -Z" I am getting some more information which is for selinux..i.e

"unconfined_u:unconfined_r:inconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023"
Above is the line im getting more with the process id and all....
my selinux mode is ENFORCING

can anyone tell me what is the meaning of that line.

Hi,

The extra info shown when using the Z option shows the selinux policies/restrictions (if any). unconfined means that selinux doesn't restrict this particular file/process (even though it is set up as enforcing).

SELinux isn't the easiest of topics, have a look here: Security-Enhanced Linux (RedHat)

Hope this helps.
