int setfscreatecon(security_context_t context);
getfscreatecon retrieves the context used for creating a new file sys-
tem object. This returned context should be freed with freecon if non-
NULL. getfscreatecon sets *con to NULL if no fscreate context has been
explicitly set by the program (i.e. using the default policy behavior).
setfscreatecon sets the context used for creating a new file system
object. NULL can be passed to setfscreatecon to reset to the default
policy behavior. The fscreate context is automatically reset after the
next execve, so a program doesn't need to explicitly sanitize it upon
setfscreatecon can be applied prior to library functions that inter-
nally perform an file creation, in order to set an file context on the
Note: Signal handlers that perform an setfscreate must take care to
save, reset, and restore the fscreate context to avoid unexpected
On error -1 is returned. On success 0 is returned.
