Description Anthony Messina 2015-02-14 18:53:30 UTC
When updating some F21 systemd unit files to use RuntimeDirectory rather than tmpfiles.d, I came across the following issue:

When using tmpfiles.d, directories are created with the proper SELinux file contexts.  However, when using RuntimeDirectory within a *.service unit, the directories are created with system_u:object_r:init_var_run_t:s0 which generates AVCs similar to the following:

type=AVC msg=audit(1423937941.998:14406): avc:  denied  { write } for  pid=16392 comm="asterisk" name="asterisk" dev="tmpfs" ino=3804883 scontext=system_u:system_r:asterisk_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:init_var_run_t:s0 tclass=dir

In this case, the current SELinux policy expects /run/asterisk to be labeled with system_u:object_r:asterisk_var_run_t:s0


# /etc/tmpfiles.d/asterisk.conf
d /run/asterisk 0755 asterisk asterisk

# /etc/systemd system/asterisk.service
Description=Asterisk PBX and telephony daemon

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/asterisk -f -C /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf
ExecStop=/usr/sbin/asterisk -rx 'core stop now'
ExecReload=/usr/sbin/asterisk -rx 'core reload'



Comment 1 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2015-02-14 19:14:59 UTC
Fixed upstream in http://cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd/systemd/commit/?id=ca905b2fce. Should be easy enough to backport.
