Description Sjoerd Mullender 2017-11-14 20:18:38 UTC
Description of problem:
I get the following selinux denial (also on other files) since upgrading to Fedora 27.  Clearly, the dovecot selinux rules have to be extended with the new "map" access.

SELinux is preventing imap from map access on the file /home/sjoerd/Maildir/dovecot.index.cache.

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

If you believe that imap should be allowed map access on the dovecot.index.cache 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:
# ausearch -c 'imap' --raw | audit2allow -M my-imap
# semodule -X 300 -i my-imap.pp

1.install and configure dovecot using ~/Maildir as mail store
2.I let postfix deliver using dovecot-lda.  This may or may not be relevant.

Actual results:
See above

Expected results:
No denials

Additional info:
I relabeled the system after the upgrade from Fedora 26.

Comment 1 Pierguido Lambri 2017-11-16 11:13:00 UTC
I get the same issue.
I'm not using postifx, but rather offlineimap to store the mails in ~/Maildir.
It's quite annoying because setroubleshoot will fill the logs and raise the cpu usage quite a lot (I had to remove setroubleshoot-server)

Comment 2 Scott Shambarger 2017-11-19 00:32:31 UTC
Yes, there appear to be TWO missing policies...

allow dovecot_t mail_home_rw_t:file map;
allow dovecot_deliver_t mail_home_rw_t:file map;

... the second applies to dovecot-lda

Works for dovecot_t, but not for dovecot_deliver_t

Should I log a separate bug?
