evtchnd_selinux(8) SELinux Policy documentation for evtchnd evtchnd_selinux(8)

NAME evtchnd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the evtchnd pro- cesses

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

The evtchnd processes execute with the evtchnd_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 evtchnd_t

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

/usr/sbin/evtchnd

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

The following process types are defined for evtchnd:

evtchnd_t

Note: semanage permissive -a evtchnd_t

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

The following file types are defined for evtchnd:

evtchnd_exec_t

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

evtchnd_var_log_t

- Set files with the evtchnd_var_log_t type, if you want to treat the data as evtchnd var log data, usually stored under the /var/log direc- tory.

evtchnd_var_run_t

- Set files with the evtchnd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the evtchnd 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 evtchnd_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.

evtchnd_var_log_t

/var/log/evtchnd.log.*

evtchnd_var_run_t

/var/run/evtchnd /var/run/evtchnd.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.
