Turn on/off:

temporarily turn off:
echo 0 >/selinux/enforce

turn back on:
echo 1 >/selinux/enforce


A number of SELinux alerts are suppressed by design. Unfortunately, on occasion we need to see these alerts to troubleshoot our applications.

On CentOS we can enable complete auditing by running:

semodule -b /usr/share/selinux/targeted/enableaudit.pp

When you no loner need complete auditing you should restore the system to its previous state to prevent the audit.log from filling up with unnecessary alerts:

semodule -b /usr/share/selinux/targeted/base.pp
