NAME consolekit_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the consolekit processes

DESCRIPTION SELinux Linux secures consolekit (Framework for facilitating multiple user sessions on desktops) processes via flexible mandatory access con- trol.

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

The following file types are defined for consolekit:

consolekit_exec_t

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

consolekit_log_t

- Set files with the consolekit_log_t type, if you want to treat the data as consolekit log data, usually stored under the /var/log direc- tory.

consolekit_tmpfs_t

- Set files with the consolekit_tmpfs_t type, if you want to store con- solekit files on a tmpfs file system.

consolekit_var_run_t

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

Paths: /var/run/console-kit-daemon.pid, /var/run/ConsoleKit(/.*)?, /var/run/consolekit.pid

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 consolekit policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their con- solekit processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for consolekit:

consolekit_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.
