Description of problem:

In FIPS mode, selinux prevents /usr/sbin/rndc to read urandom with the following AVC:

time->Thu Jul 10 11:56:41 2014
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1405007801.451:984): arch=40000003 syscall=5 success=no exit=-13 a0=7e194a a1=900 a2=b775bcb8 a3=0 items=0 ppid=14077 pid=14080 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 tty=(none) ses=4294967295 comm="rndc" exe="/usr/sbin/rndc" subj=unconfined_u:system_r:ndc_t:s0 key=(null)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Execute the following test in FIPS mode:
   - /CoreOS/openssh/Security/bz1081343-openssh-failure-to-check-DNS-SSHFP-records-in

Actual results:

AVC found, test fails.

Expected results:

No AVC, test should pass.

Additional info:

Comment 2 Ondrej Moriš 2014-07-30 12:25:48 UTC
Please notice that no such AVC is reported with FIPS mode disabled, aforementioned rndc call comes somewhere from bind-utils package (my guess is that it is called only in FIPS mode and that the issue can be reproduced simply by calling rndc).

Similar to BZ#1110397.
