NAME dhcpc_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the dhcpc processes

DESCRIPTION Security-Enhanced Linux secures the dhcpc processes via flexible manda- tory access control.

The dhcpc processes execute with the dhcpc_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 dhcpc_t

ENTRYPOINTS The dhcpc_t SELinux type can be entered via the dhcpc_exec_t file type.

The default entrypoint paths for the dhcpc_t domain are the following:

/sbin/dhclient.*, /sbin/pump, /sbin/dhcdbd, /sbin/dhcpcd

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 dhcpc policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their dhcpc pro- cesses in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for dhcpc:

dhcpc_t

Note: semanage permissive -a dhcpc_t can be used to make the process type dhcpc_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. dhcpc policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run dhcpc with the tightest access possible.

If you want to allow dhcpc client applications to execute iptables com- mands, you must turn on the dhcpc_exec_iptables boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P dhcpc_exec_iptables 1

If you want to allow all daemons to write corefiles to /, you must turn on the allow_daemons_dump_core boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_daemons_dump_core 1

If you want to allow all daemons to use tcp wrappers, you must turn on the allow_daemons_use_tcp_wrapper boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_daemons_use_tcp_wrapper 1

If you want to allow all daemons the ability to read/write terminals, you must turn on the allow_daemons_use_tty boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_daemons_use_tty 1

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 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 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 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 enable support for upstart as the init program, you must turn on the init_upstart boolean. Enabled by default.

setsebool -P init_upstart 1

If you want to disable transitions to insmod, you must turn on the secure_mode_insmod boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P secure_mode_insmod 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 dhcpc policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their dhcpc processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following port types are defined for dhcpc:

dhcpc_port_t

Default Defined Ports: tcp 68,546 udp 68,546

MANAGED FILES The SELinux process type dhcpc_t can manage files labeled with the fol- lowing file types. The paths listed are the default paths for these file types. Note the processes UID still need to have DAC permissions.

dhcpc_state_t

/var/lib/dhcp3?/dhclient.* /var/lib/dhcpcd(/.*)? /var/lib/dhclient(/.*)? /var/lib/wifiroamd(/.*)?

dhcpc_tmp_t

dhcpc_var_run_t

/var/run/dhclient.*

initrc_var_run_t

/var/run/utmp /var/run/random-seed /var/run/runlevel.dir /var/run/setmixer_flag

net_conf_t

/etc/ntpd?.conf.* /etc/yp.conf.* /etc/denyhosts.* /etc/hosts.deny.* /etc/resolv.conf.* /etc/ntp/step-tickers.* /etc/sysconfig/networking(/.*)? /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts(/.*)? /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/.*resolv.conf /etc/hosts /etc/ethers

root_t

/ /initrd

virt_var_run_t

/var/vdsm(/.*)? /var/run/vdsm(/.*)? /var/run/libvirt(/.*)?

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

STANDARD FILE CONTEXT

SELinux defines the file context types for the dhcpc, 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 dhcpc_exec_t /srv/dhcpc/content(/.*)? restorecon -R -v /srv/mydhcpc_content

Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files.

The following file types are defined for dhcpc:

dhcpc_exec_t

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

Paths: /sbin/dhclient.*, /sbin/pump, /sbin/dhcdbd, /sbin/dhcpcd

dhcpc_helper_exec_t

- Set files with the dhcpc_helper_exec_t type, if you want to transi- tion an executable to the dhcpc_helper_t domain.

dhcpc_state_t

- Set files with the dhcpc_state_t type, if you want to treat the files as dhcpc state data.

Paths: /var/lib/dhcp3?/dhclient.*, /var/lib/dhcpcd(/.*)?, /var/lib/dhclient(/.*)?, /var/lib/wifiroamd(/.*)?

dhcpc_tmp_t

- Set files with the dhcpc_tmp_t type, if you want to store dhcpc tem- porary files in the /tmp directories.

dhcpc_var_run_t

- Set files with the dhcpc_var_run_t type, if you want to store the dhcpc files under the /run or /var/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.

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.
