NAME apm_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the apm processes

DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures apm (Advanced power management daemon) 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 apm policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their apm processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following file types are defined for apm:

apm_exec_t

- Set files with the apm_exec_t type, if you want to transition an exe- cutable to the apm_t domain.

apmd_exec_t

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

Paths: /usr/sbin/powersaved, /usr/sbin/acpid, /usr/sbin/apmd

apmd_lock_t

- Set files with the apmd_lock_t type, if you want to treat the files as apmd lock data, stored under the /var/lock directory

apmd_log_t

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

apmd_tmp_t

- Set files with the apmd_tmp_t type, if you want to store apmd tempo- rary files in the /tmp directories.

apmd_var_run_t

- Set files with the apmd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the apmd files under the /run directory.

Paths: /var/run/.?acpid.socket, /var/run/apmd.pid, /var/run/power- saved.pid, /var/run/powersave_socket

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.

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 apm policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their apm processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for apm:

apm_t, apmd_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.

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