I have some data in userspace that I am keeping its security context.but as I want to write this data on some file in OS, I need to consult with security server if such data is allowed to be written on the file. I would like to know if there is any API that let me do such a scenario, that is input source and destination security context (both of them security context,not a domain context) and returns access decision. I am familiar with avc_has_perm(3), but seems to be not correct solution because it gets domain context as the first argument.
