NAME cobblerd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the cobblerd pro- cesses
DESCRIPTION Security-Enhanced Linux secures the cobblerd processes via flexible mandatory access control.
The cobblerd processes execute with the cobblerd_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 cobblerd_t
ENTRYPOINTS The cobblerd_t SELinux type can be entered via the cobblerd_exec_t file type.
The default entrypoint paths for the cobblerd_t domain are the follow- ing:
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 cobblerd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their cobblerd processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for cobblerd:
Note: semanage permissive -a cobblerd_t can be used to make the process type cobblerd_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still gener- ated.
BOOLEANS SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. cob- blerd policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run cobblerd with the tightest access possible.

setsebool -P init_upstart 1
PORT TYPES SELinux defines port types to represent TCP and UDP ports.
You can see the types associated with a port by using the following command:
semanage port -l
Policy governs the access confined processes have to these ports. SELinux cobblerd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their cobblerd processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following port types are defined for cobblerd:
Default Defined Ports: tcp 25151
MANAGED FILES The SELinux process type cobblerd_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.
/var/lib/cobbler(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/pub(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/etc(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/ppc(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/grub(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/links(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/s390x(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/images(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/images(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/rendered(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/ks_mirror(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/localmirror(/.*)? /var/www/cobbler/repo_mirror(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg(/.*)? /var/lib/tftpboot/yaboot /var/lib/tftpboot/memdisk /var/lib/tftpboot/menu.c32 /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.0

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 cobblerd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their cobblerd processes in as secure a method as possible.
STANDARD FILE CONTEXT
SELinux defines the file context types for the cobblerd, if you wanted to store files with these types in a diffent paths, you need to execute the semanage command to sepecify alternate labeling and then use restorecon to put the labels on disk.
semanage fcontext -a -t cobblerd_exec_t /srv/cobblerd/content(/.*)? restorecon -R -v /srv/mycobblerd_content
Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files.
The following file types are defined for cobblerd:
- Set files with the cobblerd_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the cobblerd_t domain.
- Set files with the cobblerd_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to tran- sition an executable to the cobblerd_initrc_t domain.
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.
SHARING FILES If you want to share files with multiple domains (Apache, FTP, rsync, Samba), you can set a file context of public_content_t and public_con- tent_rw_t. These context allow any of the above domains to read the content. If you want a particular domain to write to the public_con- tent_rw_t domain, you must set the appropriate boolean.
Allow cobblerd servers to read the /var/cobblerd directory by adding the public_content_t file type to the directory and by restoring the file type.
semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/cobblerd(/.*)?" restorecon -F -R -v /var/cobblerd
Allow cobblerd servers to read and write /var/cobblerd/incoming by adding the public_content_rw_t type to the directory and by restoring the file type. You also need to turn on the cobblerd_anon_write boolean.
semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_rw_t "/var/cobblerd/incom- ing(/.*)?" restorecon -F -R -v /var/cobblerd/incoming setsebool -P cobblerd_anon_write 1
If you want to allow Cobbler to modify public files used for public file transfer services., you must turn on the cobbler_anon_write boolean.
setsebool -P cobbler_anon_write 1
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 port can also be used to manipulate the port definitions
semanage boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux pol- icy settings.
