NAME admin_crontab_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the admin_crontab processes
DESCRIPTION Security-Enhanced Linux secures the admin_crontab processes via flexi- ble mandatory access control.
The admin_crontab processes execute with the admin_crontab_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep admin_crontab_t
ENTRYPOINTS The admin_crontab_t SELinux type can be entered via the crontab_exec_t file type.
The default entrypoint paths for the admin_crontab_t domain are the following:
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 admin_crontab policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their admin_crontab processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for admin_crontab:
Note: semanage permissive -a admin_crontab_t can be used to make the process type admin_crontab_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still generated.
BOOLEANS SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. admin_crontab policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run admin_crontab with the tightest access possible.
If you want to allow all domains to use other domains file descriptors, you must turn on the allow_domain_fd_use boolean. Enabled by default.
setsebool -P allow_domain_fd_use 1
If you want to allow confined applications to run with kerberos, you must turn on the allow_kerberos boolean. Enabled by default.
setsebool -P allow_kerberos 1
If you want to allow sysadm to debug or ptrace all processes, you must turn on the allow_ptrace boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P allow_ptrace 1
If you want to allow system to run with NIS, you must turn on the allow_ypbind boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P allow_ypbind 1
If you want to allow all domains to have the kernel load modules, you must turn on the domain_kernel_load_modules boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P domain_kernel_load_modules 1
If you want to enable extra rules in the cron domain to support fcron, you must turn on the fcron_crond boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P fcron_crond 1
If you want to allow all domains to execute in fips_mode, you must turn on the fips_mode boolean. Enabled by default.
setsebool -P fips_mode 1
If you want to enable reading of urandom for all domains, you must turn on the global_ssp boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P global_ssp 1
If you want to allow confined applications to use nscd shared memory, you must turn on the nscd_use_shm boolean. Enabled by default.
setsebool -P nscd_use_shm 1
If you want to support NFS home directories, you must turn on the use_nfs_home_dirs boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P use_nfs_home_dirs 1
If you want to support SAMBA home directories, you must turn on the use_samba_home_dirs boolean. Disabled by default.
setsebool -P use_samba_home_dirs 1
MANAGED FILES The SELinux process type admin_crontab_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 per- missions.
/var/log/btmp.* /var/log/faillog.* /var/log/tallylog.* /var/run/faillock(/.*)?
/var/run/pcscd.events(/.*)? /var/run/pcscd.pid /var/run/pcscd.pub /var/run/pcscd.comm
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.
semanage boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux pol- icy settings.
