Description James Morris 2006-06-04 06:50:25 UTC
Address LSM API abuse, perhaps by binary patching SELinux directly into kernel via alternatives infrastructure.
Comment 1 Eric Paris 2006-07-05 18:17:55 UTC
I'm taking this off the RHEL5 blocker since obviously I didn't do it. Next question, what were you looking for here?
Comment 2 James Morris 2006-07-05 19:25:52 UTC
One possibility is to have LSM effectively disappear at compile time, with some tricks, so that SELinux is actually compiled in directly. Another is to look at the 'alternatives' infrastructure to binary patch the kernel during boot. There's also possibly some benefit to placing the security_ops structure in an RO section.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 17:18:54 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 00:31:22 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was first requested. As a result we are closing it. If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora version please feel free to reopen it against that version. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp
