NAME abrt_handle_event_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the abrt_handle_event processes

DESCRIPTION Security-Enhanced Linux secures the abrt_handle_event processes via flexible mandatory access control.

The abrt_handle_event processes execute with the abrt_handle_event_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by exe- cuting the ps command with the -Z qualifier.

For example:

ps -eZ | grep abrt_handle_event_t

ENTRYPOINTS The abrt_handle_event_t SELinux type can be entered via the "mtrr_device_t,unlabeled_t,proc_type,abrt_han- dle_event_exec_t,sysctl_type,filesystem_type,file_type" file types. The default entrypoint paths for the abrt_handle_event_t domain are the following:"

/dev/cpu/mtrr, /usr/libexec/abrt-handle-event, all files on the system

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

The following process types are defined for abrt_handle_event:

abrt_handle_event_t

Note: semanage permissive -a abrt_handle_event_t

can be used to make the process type abrt_handle_event_t permissive. Permissive process types are not denied access by SELinux. AVC messages will still be generated.

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

If you want to allow ABRT to run in abrt_handle_event_t domain to han- dle ABRT event scripts, you must turn on the abrt_handle_event boolean.

setsebool -P abrt_handle_event 1

If you want to allow ABRT to run in abrt_handle_event_t domain to han- dle ABRT event scripts, you must turn on the abrt_handle_event boolean.

setsebool -P abrt_handle_event 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 abrt_handle_event policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their abrt_handle_event processes in as secure a method as possi- ble.

The following file types are defined for abrt_handle_event:

abrt_handle_event_exec_t

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

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.

MANAGED FILES The SELinux process type abrt_handle_event_t can manage files labeled with the following file types. The paths listed are the default paths for these file types. Note the processes UID still need to have DAC permissions.

file_type

all files on the system

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.
