NAME arpwatch_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the arpwatch pro- cesses
DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures arpwatch (Ethernet activity monitor) 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 arpwatch policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their arpwatch processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following file types are defined for arpwatch:
- Set files with the arpwatch_data_t type, if you want to treat the files as arpwatch content.
Paths: /var/arpwatch(/.*)?, /var/lib/arpwatch(/.*)?
- Set files with the arpwatch_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the arpwatch_t domain.
- Set files with the arpwatch_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to tran- sition an executable to the arpwatch_initrc_t domain.
- Set files with the arpwatch_tmp_t type, if you want to store arpwatch temporary files in the /tmp directories.
- Set files with the arpwatch_var_run_t type, if you want to store the arpwatch files under the /run directory.
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 arpwatch policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their arpwatch processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for arpwatch:
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.
