avc_context_to_sid(3)	   SELinux API documentation	 avc_context_to_sid(3)

       avc_context_to_sid,  avc_sid_to_context,	 avc_get_initial_sid  - obtain
       and manipulate SELinux security ID's.

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       #include <selinux/avc.h>

       int avc_context_to_sid(security_context_t ctx, security_id_t *sid);

       int avc_sid_to_context(security_id_t sid, security_context_t *ctx);

       int avc_get_initial_sid(const char *name, security_id_t *sid);

       Security ID's (SID's) are opaque representations of security  contexts,
       managed by the userspace AVC.

       avc_context_to_sid  returns  a  SID for the given context in the memory
       referenced by sid.

       avc_sid_to_context returns a copy of the context represented by sid  in
       the  memory  referenced	by  ctx.   The	user  must  free the copy with

       avc_get_initial_sid returns a SID for the kernel initial security iden‐
       tifier specified by name.

       avc_context_to_sid  and	avc_sid_to_context return zero on success.  On
       error, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.

       ENOMEM An attempt to allocate memory failed.

       As of libselinux version 2.0.86, SID's are no longer reference counted.
       A  SID  will be valid from the time it is first obtained until the next
       call to avc_destroy(3).	The sidget and sidput functions, formerly used
       to adjust the reference count, are no-ops and are deprecated.
