Description Javier Palacios 2008-05-14 15:59:56 EDT
I'm using kerberos/GSSAPI authentication for nss-ldap, and the default selinux policy produces the message: SELinux is preventing nscd (nscd_t) "getattr" to /etc/krb5.conf (krb5_conf_t). changing the type form krb5_conf_t to etc_t is enough to avoid the message
Comment 1 Javier Palacios 2008-05-15 10:07:24 EDT
Setting the SElinux enforcing mode to permisive does also works, but produces plenty of similar messages coming for different applications and source contexts: polkit-read-aut, restorecond, pam_console_app.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2008-05-15 14:06:19 EDT
You can allow this for now. # audit2allow -M mypol -l -i /var/log/audit/audit.log # semodule -i mypol.pp Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-52.fc9.noarch
Comment 3 Javier Palacios 2008-05-17 07:15:50 EDT
I've performed a new install, to get the minimal required policy, and now I get some issues that seems more related to nscd itself. Is there any way to load the text file generated by audit2allow? I pretend to enable them on the kickstart postinstall.
Comment 4 Javier Palacios 2008-05-17 10:25:35 EDT
As the intially reported problem is actually solved, I'll close this ticket, leaving the remaing problems for bug 446482, which I believe is the proper place.
Comment 5 Javier Palacios 2008-05-18 14:04:04 EDT
The bug pointed on previous note was 446499. Besides nscd_t, I've got similar messages, where the acces is denied for semanage_t and setroubleshootd_t going for krb5_conf_t
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2008-05-19 14:38:50 EDT
Ok so I guess you have setup a situation where every confined application that needs to use nsswitch now needs to read the kerberos configuration. I will make this change in policy. Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-53.fc9.noarch
Comment 7 Javier Palacios 2008-05-19 17:43:43 EDT
Can I download the updated package, to check that no more friends come to this party?
Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2008-05-19 20:30:07 EDT
Should be available shortly in koji. I will be releasing it to updates-testing tomorrow.
