NAME devicekit_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the devicekit processes
DESCRIPTION Security-Enhanced Linux secures the devicekit processes via flexible mandatory access control.
The devicekit processes execute with the devicekit_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps com- mand with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep devicekit_t
ENTRYPOINTS The devicekit_t SELinux type can be entered via the "mtrr_device_t,unlabeled_t,proc_type,sysctl_type,filesys- tem_type,file_type,devicekit_exec_t" file types. The default entry- point paths for the devicekit_t domain are the following:"
/dev/cpu/mtrr, all files on the system, /usr/libexec/devkit-daemon
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 devicekit policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their devicekit processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for devicekit:
devicekit_power_t, devicekit_disk_t, devicekit_t
Note: semanage permissive -a devicekit_t
can be used to make the process type devicekit_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 devicekit policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their devicekit processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following file types are defined for devicekit:
- Set files with the devicekit_disk_exec_t type, if you want to transi- tion an executable to the devicekit_disk_t domain.
- Set files with the devicekit_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the devicekit_t domain.
- Set files with the devicekit_power_exec_t type, if you want to tran- sition an executable to the devicekit_power_t domain.
- Set files with the devicekit_tmp_t type, if you want to store devicekit temporary files in the /tmp directories.
- Set files with the devicekit_var_lib_t type, if you want to store the devicekit files under the /var/lib directory.
- Set files with the devicekit_var_run_t type, if you want to store the devicekit 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 devicekit_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.
all files on the system
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.
