We can use this function to see if there is an AppArmor profile associated with the current process, and in which mode it current is set (enforce, complain, disable).
print some C output (TRUE/FALSE)
Note that in order for this function to do its work, it needs read access to the attributes of the current process. If aa_getcon fails with a permission denied error, it might actually mean that the current process is being confined with a very restrictive profile.
