Description Jan Pazdziora 2018-06-25 09:51:42 UTC
Description of problem:

Using selinux-policy-3.13.1-204.el7, runninig

  systemctl start openvswitch

causes AVC denial.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable FDP-7-RHEL-7 repo.
2. yum install -y openvswitch
3. systemctl start openvswitch
4. Check audit.log.

Actual results:

type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1529917649.263:181): arch=c000003e syscall=9 success=no exit=-13 a0=0 a1=5932f a2=1 a3=2 items=0 ppid=12154 pid=12185 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 tty=(none) ses=4294967295 comm="modprobe" exe="/usr/bin/kmod" subj=system_u:system_r:openvswitch_t:s0 key=(null)
type=AVC msg=audit(1529917649.263:181): avc:  denied  { map } for  pid=12185 comm="modprobe" path="/usr/lib/modules/3.10.0-907.el7.x86_64/modules.dep.bin" dev="dm-0" ino=101044569 scontext=system_u:system_r:openvswitch_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:modules_object_t:s0 tclass=file permissive=0

Expected results:

No AVC denial.

Additional info:

This seems to be RHEL 7.6 version of Fedora bug 1508336 and bug 1508337.

This is a regression against RHEL 7.5's selinux-policy-3.13.1-192.el7_5.4.noarch.

Comment 5 Jan Tluka 2018-07-02 12:35:35 UTC
I noticed this bug with 7.5 distro when the kernel used was kernel-3.10.0-915.el7.

This issue did not occur with the same setup (same OVS and selinux-policy) and kernel-3.10.0-908.el7.

It looks like the issue is caused by some change in kernel behavior between these releases, though I have not bisected this yet.
