Description Lukas Vrabec 2016-02-10 04:58:01 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1299106 +++

Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing systemd from 'getattr' accesses on the file /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that systemd should be allowed getattr access on the ssh_host_rsa_key file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep systemd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

I had a discussion with ssh maintainer Jakub Jelen, and we ended up with that getattr si enough. Here is patch which caused the issue.


I'm going to allow this.
