cupsd_selinux(8) SELinux Policy documentation for cupsd cupsd_selinux(8)

NAME cupsd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the cupsd processes

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

The cupsd processes execute with the cupsd_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 cupsd_t

ENTRYPOINTS The cupsd_t SELinux type can be entered via the "cupsd_exec_t" file type. The default entrypoint paths for the cupsd_t domain are the fol- lowing:"

/usr/sbin/cupsd

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

The following process types are defined for cupsd:

cupsd_t, cupsd_config_t, cupsd_lpd_t, cups_pdf_t

Note: semanage permissive -a cupsd_t

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

The following file types are defined for cupsd:

cupsd_config_exec_t

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

cupsd_config_var_run_t

- Set files with the cupsd_config_var_run_t type, if you want to store the cupsd config files under the /run directory.

cupsd_etc_t

- Set files with the cupsd_etc_t type, if you want to store cupsd files in the /etc directories.

cupsd_exec_t

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

cupsd_initrc_exec_t

- Set files with the cupsd_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to transi- tion an executable to the cupsd_initrc_t domain.

cupsd_interface_t

- Set files with the cupsd_interface_t type, if you want to treat the files as cupsd interface data.

cupsd_lock_t

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

cupsd_log_t

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

cupsd_lpd_exec_t

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

cupsd_lpd_tmp_t

- Set files with the cupsd_lpd_tmp_t type, if you want to store cupsd lpd temporary files in the /tmp directories.

cupsd_lpd_var_run_t

- Set files with the cupsd_lpd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the cupsd lpd files under the /run directory.

cupsd_rw_etc_t

- Set files with the cupsd_rw_etc_t type, if you want to store cupsd rw files in the /etc directories.

cupsd_tmp_t

- Set files with the cupsd_tmp_t type, if you want to store cupsd tem- porary files in the /tmp directories.

cupsd_var_run_t

- Set files with the cupsd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the cupsd 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 cupsd_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.

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.
