Description Lukas Slebodnik 2017-02-03 15:51:22 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to debug some issues with recent changes in atomic utility
and I found a problem in docker as part of finding a reproducer.
It's not related to SElinux because the same problem is in permissive mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sh4 rpm -q docker selinux-policy container-selinux 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. docker run -ti --security-opt=no-new-privileges --name test fedora:25 bas

Actual results:
panic: standard_init_linux.go:178: exec user process caused "operation not permitted" [recovered]
        panic: standard_init_linux.go:178: exec user process caused "operation not permitted"

goroutine 1 [running, locked to thread]:

Any AVCs?

ausearch -m avc -ts recent

(In reply to Daniel Walsh from comment #2)
> Any AVCs?

the same problem is in permissive mode.

Comment 4 Lukas Slebodnik 2017-02-04 15:01:56 UTC
Created attachment 1247707 [details]
joutnald output

Attached is journald output related to creating container.
I enabled --debug for docker.service docker-containerd.service

Hope it helps

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2017-02-06 13:36:53 UTC
You are using a BTRFS back end which could be the problem.  I doubt anyone has tested this with anything other then devicemapper or overlay2.

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2017-02-06 13:38:20 UTC
Does it work if you run with --security-opt label:disable

I am thinking this has something to do with SELinux labels trying to be assigned somewhere but not being allowed.  But if everything works without --no-new-privs?

Comment 7 Lukas Slebodnik 2017-02-07 09:30:01 UTC
(In reply to Daniel Walsh from comment #6)
> Does it work if you run with --security-opt label:disable
It works.

and it also works with SELinux type docker_t or container_runtime_t
docker run -ti --security-opt=label:type:docker_t \
               --security-opt=no-new-privileges --rm fedora:25 bash

The only problem is with default container_t

Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2017-02-07 14:14:33 UTC
docker_t is a very privileged domain, container_t is a less privileged domain.

I have build container-selinux-2.6-1.fc26 could you try this with that package.  I will push it to replace the update.  I think it will fix your issue.

Comment 9 Lukas Slebodnik 2017-02-07 17:36:04 UTC
I saw following error when upgrading to 2.7-1

Comment 10 Lukas Slebodnik 2017-02-07 17:36:56 UTC
So I am not sure that policy was applied.
But it did not help.

Comment 11 Daniel Walsh 2017-02-07 21:26:02 UTC
It was not applied.

Modify expand-check in /etc/selinux/semanage.conf


And then reinstall container-selinux

This should stop that error. The problem is in selinux-policy package in Rawhide.  I have opened a pull request to fix this.


Comment 12 Lukas Slebodnik 2017-02-10 21:21:53 UTC
Works well with container-selinux-2:2.8-1.fc26.noarch.

Thank you.
