Description are-support 2018-04-03 22:38:42 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux prevents Postfix from accessing the OpenDKIM UNIX socket when it is specified under non_smtpd_milters.

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

How reproducible:
Always, when OpenDKIM is configured to use a local UNIX socket and Postfix is configured to use it with non_smtpd_milters.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure OpenDKIM to use a socket at /var/run/opendkim/opendkim.sock
2. Add the socket to Postfix using non_smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/opendkim/opendkim.sock
3. Restart Postfix and try to send mail

Actual results:
OpenDKIM milter rejects mail with "postfix/cleanup[1612]: warning: connect to Milter service unix:/var/run/opendkim/opendkim.sock: Permission denied"

Expected results:
OpenDKIM milter should accept and process mail

Additional info:
Entries in audit.log confirm that SELinux is preventing access to the socket. Identical bug is shown here as fixed in Fedora: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1436026. Using audit2allow to generate a custom policy addition solves the error.

Please collect SELinux denials and attach them here:

# ausearch -m avc -m user_avc -m selinux_err -m user_selinux_err -i -ts today

I'm sorry, they are already present in BZ#1436026.

Here it is just in case:
