(edit)
The semanage utility did not produce correct audit messages in the Common Criteria certified environment. This update modifies semanage so that it now sends correct audit events when the user is assigned to or removed from a new role.

This update also modifies behavior of semanage concerning the user's SELinux Multi-Level Security (MLS) and Multi-Category Security (MCS) range. The utility now works with the user's default range of the MLS/MCS security level instead of the lowest.

In addition, the semange(8) manual page has been corrected to reflect the current semanage functionality.
