44.7.2. Where is the Policy?

There are two components to the policy: the binary tree and the source tree. The binary tree is provided by the selinux-policy-<policyname> package and supplies the binary policy file.

Alternatively, the binary policy can be built from source when the selinux-policy-devel package is installed.
