Description Renaud Métrich 2018-05-17 08:09:55 UTC
Description of problem:

Using the httpd_can_network_connect_db boolean, httpd/cgi scripts (httpd_sys_script_t) can connect to various DBs (postgresql, mysql, ...) but not mongodb. This is the only DB missing from the list:

# sesearch -A -s httpd_sys_script_t -b httpd_can_network_connect_db -p name_connect
Found 5 semantic av rules:
   allow httpd_sys_script_t postgresql_port_t : tcp_socket name_connect ; 
   allow httpd_sys_script_t mssql_port_t : tcp_socket name_connect ; 
   allow httpd_sys_script_t mysqld_port_t : tcp_socket name_connect ; 
   allow httpd_sys_script_t gds_db_port_t : tcp_socket name_connect ; 
   allow httpd_sys_script_t oracle_port_t : tcp_socket name_connect ; 

httpd_t can:

# sesearch -A -s httpd_t -t mongod_port_t -b httpd_can_network_connect_db -p name_connectFound 1 semantic av rules:
   allow httpd_t mongod_port_t : tcp_socket name_connect ; 

but not httpd_sys_script_t:

# sesearch -A -s httpd_sys_script_t -t mongod_port_t -b httpd_can_network_connect_db -p name_connect

This is likely an omission.
