NAME bluetooth_helper_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the blue- tooth_helper processes

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

The bluetooth_helper processes execute with the bluetooth_helper_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 bluetooth_helper_t

ENTRYPOINTS The bluetooth_helper_t SELinux type can be entered via the "blue- tooth_helper_exec_t" file type. The default entrypoint paths for the bluetooth_helper_t domain are the following:"

/usr/bin/blue.*pin

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

The following process types are defined for bluetooth_helper:

bluetooth_helper_t

Note: semanage permissive -a bluetooth_helper_t

can be used to make the process type bluetooth_helper_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 bluetooth_helper policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their bluetooth_helper processes in as secure a method as possi- ble.

The following file types are defined for bluetooth_helper:

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.

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 bluetooth_helper_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.

bluetooth_helper_tmp_t

bluetooth_helper_tmpfs_t

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

user_fonts_cache_t

/home/[^/]*/.fonts/auto(/.*)? /home/[^/]*/.fontconfig(/.*)? /home/[^/]*/.fonts.cache-.*

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.
