aide_selinux(8) SELinux Policy documentation for aide aide_selinux(8)

NAME aide_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the aide processes

DESCRIPTION Security-Enhanced Linux secures the aide processes via flexible manda- tory access control.

The aide processes execute with the aide_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.

For example:

ps -eZ | grep aide_t

ENTRYPOINTS The aide_t SELinux type can be entered via the "aide_exec_t" file type. The default entrypoint paths for the aide_t domain are the following:"

/usr/sbin/aide

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 aide policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their aide pro- cesses in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for aide:

aide_t

Note: semanage permissive -a aide_t

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

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

The following file types are defined for aide:

aide_db_t

- Set files with the aide_db_t type, if you want to treat the files as aide database content.

aide_exec_t

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

aide_log_t

- Set files with the aide_log_t type, if you want to treat the data as aide log data, usually stored under the /var/log 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.

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

aide_db_t

/var/lib/aide(/.*)?

aide_log_t

/var/log/aide(/.*)? /var/log/aide.log.*

initrc_tmp_t

mnt_t

/mnt(/[^/]*) /mnt(/[^/]*)? /rhev(/[^/]*)? /media(/[^/]*) /media(/[^/]*)? /etc/rhgb(/.*)? /media/.hal-.* /net /afs /misc /rhev

tmp_t

/tmp /usr/tmp /var/tmp /var/tmp/vi.recover

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.
