NAME eventlogd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the eventlogd processes

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

The eventlogd processes execute with the eventlogd_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 eventlogd_t

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

/usr/sbin/eventlogd

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 eventlogd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their event- logd processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for eventlogd:

eventlogd_t

Note: semanage permissive -a eventlogd_t

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

The following file types are defined for eventlogd:

eventlogd_exec_t

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

eventlogd_var_lib_t

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

eventlogd_var_run_t

- Set files with the eventlogd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the eventlogd files under the /run directory.

eventlogd_var_socket_t

- Set files with the eventlogd_var_socket_t type, if you want to treat the files as eventlogd var socket data.

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 eventlogd_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.

eventlogd_var_lib_t

/var/lib/likewise-open/db/lwi_events.db

eventlogd_var_run_t

/var/run/eventlogd.pid

initrc_tmp_t

mnt_t

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

root_t

/ /initrd

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.
