getsebool - Unix, Linux Command
NAMEgetsebool - get SELinux boolean value(s)
SYNOPSISgetsebool [-a] [boolean]
DESCRIPTIONgetsebool reports where a particular SELinux boolean or all SELinux booleans are on or off In certain situations a boolean can be in one state with a pending change to the other state. getsebool will report this as a pending change. The pending value indicates the value that will be applied upon the next boolean commit.
The setting of boolean values occurs in two stages; first the pending value is changed, then the booleans are committed, causing their active values to become their pending values. This allows a group of booleans to be changed in a single transaction, by setting all of their pending values as desired and then committing once.
Show all SELinux booleans.
1. Get value for particular boolean
$ getsebool named_disable_trans named_disable_trans --> off
2. Get value for all booleans
$ getsebool -a abrt_anon_write --> off abrt_handle_event --> off allow_console_login --> on allow_cvs_read_shadow --> off .....
Boolean values can be changed using setsebool and togglesebool
