NAME amanda_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the amanda pro- cesses

DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures amanda (Automated backup program) processes via flexible mandatory access control.

FILE CONTEXTS SELinux requires files to have an extended attribute to define the file type.

You can see the context of a file using the -Z option to ls

Policy governs the access confined processes have to these files. SELinux amanda policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their amanda processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following file types are defined for amanda:

amanda_amandates_t

- Set files with the amanda_amandates_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda amandates data.

amanda_config_t

- Set files with the amanda_config_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda configuration data, usually stored under the /etc directory.

Paths: /etc/amanda(/.*)?, /var/lib/amanda/.amandahosts

amanda_data_t

- Set files with the amanda_data_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda content.

Paths: /var/lib/amanda/[^/]+(/.*)?, /etc/amanda/.*/tapelist(/.*)?, /etc/amanda/.*/index(/.*)?

amanda_dumpdates_t

- Set files with the amanda_dumpdates_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda dumpdates data.

amanda_exec_t

- Set files with the amanda_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the amanda_t domain.

amanda_gnutarlists_t

- Set files with the amanda_gnutarlists_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda gnutarlists data.

amanda_inetd_exec_t

- Set files with the amanda_inetd_exec_t type, if you want to transi- tion an executable to the amanda_inetd_t domain.

Paths: /usr/lib(64)?/amanda/amidxtaped, /usr/lib(64)?/amanda/amandad, /usr/lib(64)?/amanda/amindexd

amanda_log_t

- Set files with the amanda_log_t type, if you want to treat the data as amanda log data, usually stored under the /var/log directory.

Paths: /var/log/amanda(/.*)?, /var/lib/amanda/[^/]*/log(/.*)?

amanda_recover_dir_t

- Set files with the amanda_recover_dir_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda recover dir data.

amanda_recover_exec_t

- Set files with the amanda_recover_exec_t type, if you want to transi- tion an executable to the amanda_recover_t domain.

amanda_tmp_t

- Set files with the amanda_tmp_t type, if you want to store amanda temporary files in the /tmp directories.

amanda_usr_lib_t

- Set files with the amanda_usr_lib_t type, if you want to treat the files as amanda usr lib data.

amanda_var_lib_t

- Set files with the amanda_var_lib_t type, if you want to store the amanda files under the /var/lib directory.

Paths: /var/lib/amanda, /var/lib/amanda/[^/]+/index(/.*)?

Note: File context can be temporarily modified with the chcon command. If you want to permanently change the file context you need to use the semanage fcontext command. This will modify the SELinux labeling database. You will need to use restorecon to apply the labels.

PORT TYPES SELinux defines port types to represent TCP and UDP ports.

You can see the types associated with a port by using the following command:

semanage port -l

Policy governs the access confined processes have to these ports. SELinux amanda policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their amanda processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following port types are defined for amanda:

amanda_port_t

Default Defined Ports: tcp 8021

PROCESS TYPES SELinux defines process types (domains) for each process running on the system

You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to ps

Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux amanda policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their amanda processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for amanda:

amanda_t, amanda_recover_t

Note: semanage permissive -a PROCESS_TYPE can be used to make a process type permissive. Permissive process types are not denied access by SELinux. AVC messages will still be generated.

COMMANDS semanage fcontext can also be used to manipulate default file context mappings.

semanage permissive can also be used to manipulate whether or not a process type is permissive.

semanage module can also be used to enable/disable/install/remove pol- icy modules.

semanage port can also be used to manipulate the port definitions

system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux pol- icy settings.
