cardmgr_selinux(8) SELinux Policy documentation for cardmgr cardmgr_selinux(8)

NAME cardmgr_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the cardmgr pro- cesses

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

The cardmgr processes execute with the cardmgr_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 cardmgr_t

ENTRYPOINTS The cardmgr_t SELinux type can be entered via the "cardctl_exec_t,card- mgr_exec_t" file types. The default entrypoint paths for the cardmgr_t domain are the following:"

/sbin/cardctl, /sbin/cardmgr, /etc/apm/event.d/pcmcia

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

The following process types are defined for cardmgr:

cardmgr_t

Note: semanage permissive -a cardmgr_t

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

The following file types are defined for cardmgr:

cardmgr_dev_t

- Set files with the cardmgr_dev_t type, if you want to treat the files as cardmgr dev data.

cardmgr_exec_t

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

cardmgr_lnk_t

- Set files with the cardmgr_lnk_t type, if you want to treat the files as cardmgr lnk data.

cardmgr_var_lib_t

- Set files with the cardmgr_var_lib_t type, if you want to store the cardmgr files under the /var/lib directory.

cardmgr_var_run_t

- Set files with the cardmgr_var_run_t type, if you want to store the cardmgr 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 cardmgr_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.

cardmgr_var_lib_t

cardmgr_var_run_t

/var/lib/pcmcia(/.*)? /var/run/stab /var/run/cardmgr.pid

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.
