       checkpolicy - SELinux policy compiler

       checkpolicy  [-b]  [-d]	[-M] [-U handle_unknown ] [-V] [-c policyvers]
       [-o output_file] [input_file]

       This manual page describes the checkpolicy command.

       checkpolicy is a program that checks and compiles  a  SELinux  security
       policy  configuration  into  a binary representation that can be loaded
       into the kernel.	 If no input file name is specified, checkpolicy  will
       attempt to read from policy.conf or policy, depending on whether the -b
       flag is specified.

       -b     Read an existing binary policy file rather than  a  source  pol‐
	      icy.conf file.

       -d     Enter debug mode after loading the policy.

       -M     Enable the MLS policy when checking and compiling the policy.

       -o filename
	      Write a binary policy file to the specified filename.

       -c policyvers
	      Specify the policy version, defaults to the latest.

       -U OPTION
	      Tells  the kernel how to handle unknown classes and permissions,
	      where OPTION is one of the following:

	      deny Deny unknown kernel checks

	      reject Reject loading of policy with unknowns

	      allow Allow unknown kernel checks

       -V     Show policy versions created by this program

       figuring the SELinux Policy".
