Description Peter Oliver 2014-08-05 16:18:57 UTC
Description of problem:
rhn-ssl-tool installs a key and certificate into /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key and /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt respectively (with symlinks from /etc/pki/tls/private/spacewalk.key and /etc/pki/tls/certs/spacewalk.crt).  Here, they inherint the SELinux context httpd_config_t.  Would cert_t be a more appropriate context for these files?

I'd like to use certmonger to remind me to renew the certificate, but SELinux currently prevents this.
