centos – What is this __default__ user?

Question:

The semanage login -l output confused me a bit

In addition to the root user, there were two more users:

  • __default__

  • system_u

Who are these users?

Answer:

system_u is used to start system processes during system initialization. __default__ is responsible for the rights of new users, which are created unprivileged by default.
