NAME bitlbee_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the bitlbee pro- cesses

DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures bitlbee (Bitlbee service) 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 bitlbee policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their bitlbee processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following file types are defined for bitlbee:

bitlbee_conf_t

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

bitlbee_exec_t

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

bitlbee_initrc_exec_t

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

bitlbee_tmp_t

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

bitlbee_var_t

- Set files with the bitlbee_var_t type, if you want to store the bit files under the /var 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 bitlbee policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their bitlbee processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for bitlbee:

bitlbee_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.
