NAME bluetooth_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the bluetooth processes

DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures bluetooth (Bluetooth tools and system services) processes via flexible mandatory access control.

BOOLEANS SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. blue- tooth policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run bluetooth with the tightest access possible.

If you want to allow xguest to use blue tooth device, you must turn on the xguest_use_bluetooth boolean.

setsebool -P xguest_use_bluetooth 1

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

The following file types are defined for bluetooth:

bluetooth_conf_rw_t

- Set files with the bluetooth_conf_rw_t type, if you want to treat the files as bluetooth conf read/write content.

bluetooth_conf_t

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

bluetooth_exec_t

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

Paths: /usr/sbin/hcid, /usr/sbin/sdpd, /usr/bin/hidd, /usr/sbin/blue- toothd, /usr/sbin/hid2hci, /usr/bin/dund, /usr/sbin/hciattach, /usr/bin/rfcomm

bluetooth_helper_exec_t

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

bluetooth_helper_tmp_t

- Set files with the bluetooth_helper_tmp_t type, if you want to store bluetooth helper temporary files in the /tmp directories.

bluetooth_helper_tmpfs_t

- Set files with the bluetooth_helper_tmpfs_t type, if you want to store bluetooth helper files on a tmpfs file system.

bluetooth_initrc_exec_t

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

Paths: /etc/rc.d/init.d/bluetooth, /etc/rc.d/init.d/dund, /etc/rc.d/init.d/pand

bluetooth_lock_t

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

bluetooth_tmp_t

- Set files with the bluetooth_tmp_t type, if you want to store blue- tooth temporary files in the /tmp directories.

bluetooth_var_lib_t

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

bluetooth_var_run_t

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

Paths: /var/run/bluetoothd_address, /var/run/sdp

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 bluetooth policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their blue- tooth processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for bluetooth:

bluetooth_helper_t, bluetooth_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 boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans

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