       semanage is used to configure certain elements of SELinux policy	 with‐
       out  requiring  modification  to	 or recompilation from policy sources.
       This includes the mapping from Linux usernames to SELinux user  identi‐
       ties  (which  controls  the  initial security context assigned to Linux
       users when they login and bounds their authorized role set) as well  as
       security context mappings for various kinds of objects, such as network
       ports, interfaces, and nodes (hosts) as well as the file	 context  map‐
       ping. See the EXAMPLES section below for some examples of common usage.
       Note that the semanage login command deals with the mapping from	 Linux
       usernames  (logins) to SELinux user identities, while the semanage user
       command deals with the mapping from SELinux user identities  to	autho‐
       rized  role  sets.   In most cases, only the former mapping needs to be
       adjusted by the administrator; the latter is principally defined by the
       base policy and usually does not require modification.
