NAME ctdbd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the ctdbd processes

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

The ctdbd processes execute with the ctdbd_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 ctdbd_t

ENTRYPOINTS The ctdbd_t SELinux type can be entered via the file_type, ctdbd_exec_t, unlabeled_t, proc_type, filesystem_type, mtrr_device_t, sysctl_type file types.

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

all files on the system, /usr/sbin/ctdbd, /dev/cpu/mtrr

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

The following process types are defined for ctdbd:

ctdbd_t

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

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

setsebool -P allow_domain_fd_use 1

If you want to allow unconfined executables to make their heap memory executable. Doing this is a really bad idea. Probably indicates a badly coded executable, but could indicate an attack. This executable should be reported in bugzilla, you must turn on the allow_execheap boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_execheap 1

If you want to allow unconfined executables to map a memory region as both executable and writable, this is dangerous and the executable should be reported in bugzilla), you must turn on the allow_execmem boolean. Enabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_execmem 1

If you want to allow all unconfined executables to use libraries requiring text relocation that are not labeled textrel_shlib_t), you must turn on the allow_execmod boolean. Enabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_execmod 1

If you want to allow unconfined executables to make their stack exe- cutable. This should never, ever be necessary. Probably indicates a badly coded executable, but could indicate an attack. This executable should be reported in bugzilla), you must turn on the allow_execstack boolean. Enabled by default.

setsebool -P allow_execstack 1

If you want to allow sysadm to debug or ptrace all processes, you must turn on the allow_ptrace boolean. Disabled by default.

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 allow certain domains to map low memory in the kernel, you must turn on the mmap_low_allowed boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P mmap_low_allowed 1

If you want to boolean to determine whether the system permits loading policy, setting enforcing mode, and changing boolean values. Set this to true and you have to reboot to set it back, you must turn on the secure_mode_policyload boolean. Disabled by default.

setsebool -P secure_mode_policyload 1

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

If you want to support X userspace object manager, you must turn on the xserver_object_manager boolean. Disabled by default.

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

The following port types are defined for ctdbd:

ctdb_port_t

Default Defined Ports: tcp 4379 udp 4379

MANAGED FILES The SELinux process type ctdbd_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.

file_type

all files on the system

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

EQUIVALENCE DIRECTORIES

ctdbd policy stores data with multiple different file context types under the /var/run/ctdb directory. If you would like to store the data in a different directory you can use the semanage command to create an equivalence mapping. If you wanted to store this data under the /srv dirctory you would execute the following command:

semanage fcontext -a -e /var/run/ctdb /srv/ctdb restorecon -R -v /srv/ctdb

ctdbd policy stores data with multiple different file context types under the /var/ctdb directory. If you would like to store the data in a different directory you can use the semanage command to create an equivalence mapping. If you wanted to store this data under the /srv dirctory you would execute the following command:

semanage fcontext -a -e /var/ctdb /srv/ctdb restorecon -R -v /srv/ctdb

ctdbd policy stores data with multiple different file context types under the /var/lib/ctdb directory. If you would like to store the data in a different directory you can use the semanage command to create an equivalence mapping. If you wanted to store this data under the /srv dirctory you would execute the following command:

semanage fcontext -a -e /var/lib/ctdb /srv/ctdb restorecon -R -v /srv/ctdb

STANDARD FILE CONTEXT

SELinux defines the file context types for the ctdbd, 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 ctdbd_var_run_t /srv/myctdbd_content(/.*)? restorecon -R -v /srv/myctdbd_content

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

The following file types are defined for ctdbd:

ctdbd_exec_t

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

ctdbd_initrc_exec_t

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

ctdbd_log_t

- Set files with the ctdbd_log_t type, if you want to treat the data as ctdbd log data, usually stored under the /var/log directory.

Paths: /var/log/log.ctdb.*, /var/log/ctdb.log.*

ctdbd_spool_t

- Set files with the ctdbd_spool_t type, if you want to store the ctdbd files under the /var/spool directory.

ctdbd_tmp_t

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

ctdbd_var_lib_t

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

Paths: /etc/ctdb(/.*)?, /var/ctdb(/.*)?, /var/ctdbd(/.*)?, /var/lib/ctdb(/.*)?, /var/lib/ctdbd(/.*)?

ctdbd_var_run_t

- Set files with the ctdbd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the ctdbd files under the /run or /var/run directory.

Paths: /var/run/ctdb(/.*)?, /var/run/ctdbd(/.*)?

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.
