NAME automount_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the automount processes

DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures automount (Filesystem automounter service) pro- cesses 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 automount policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their automount processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following file types are defined for automount:

automount_exec_t

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

Paths: /usr/sbin/automount, /etc/apm/event.d/autofs

automount_initrc_exec_t

- Set files with the automount_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to tran- sition an executable to the automount_initrc_t domain.

automount_keytab_t

- Set files with the automount_keytab_t type, if you want to treat the files as kerberos keytab files.

automount_lock_t

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

automount_tmp_t

- Set files with the automount_tmp_t type, if you want to store auto- mount temporary files in the /tmp directories.

automount_var_run_t

- Set files with the automount_var_run_t type, if you want to store the automount 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 automount policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their auto- mount processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for automount:

automount_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.
