Description Matthew Ife 2011-07-02 19:17:55 EDT
Description of problem: In an attempt to flush NSCD if it is running, SSSD will call system(/usr/bin/nscd -i service) to flush the cache. This is a problem from a SELinux standpoint because future policy writers will need to allow the sss-tools to have execute permission of all bin_t files. It is preferable to directly fork/exec in this situation because then SELinux policy can support the nscd_domtrans call only which greatly reduces the scope of access required to make this work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sssd-1.5.8 How reproducible: Consistently reproduceable. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Call any sss-tools application which alters the local database files. Actual results: The request works but SELinux polic would need to permit execute on bin_t types. Expected results: No requirement to execute bin_t types when calling nscd.
