NAME automount_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the automount processes

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

The automount processes execute with the automount_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps com- mand with the -Z qualifier.

For example:

ps -eZ | grep automount_t

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

/usr/sbin/automount, /etc/apm/event.d/autofs

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 automount policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their auto- mount processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for automount:

automount_t

Note: semanage permissive -a automount_t

can be used to make the process type automount_t permissive. Permissive process 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 automount policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their automount processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following file types are defined for automount:

automount_exec_t

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

automount_initrc_exec_t

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

automount_keytab_t

- Set files with the automount_keytab_t type, if you want to treat the files as kerberos keytab files.

automount_lock_t

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

automount_tmp_t

- Set files with the automount_tmp_t type, if you want to store auto- mount temporary files in the /tmp directories.

automount_var_run_t

- Set files with the automount_var_run_t type, if you want to store the automount files under the /run 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 automount_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.

automount_lock_t

automount_tmp_t

automount_var_run_t

/var/run/autofs.*

initrc_tmp_t

mnt_t

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

root_t

/ /initrd

samba_var_t

/var/lib/samba(/.*)? /var/cache/samba(/.*)? /var/spool/samba(/.*)? /var/nmbd/unexpected(/.*)?

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.
