Description Kevin R. Page 2005-08-15 19:34:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Adding the tty and type of a serial bluetooth device to /etc/bluetooth/uart should enable /etc/init.d/bluetooth to start this device (using /usr/sbin/hciattach).

e.g. add "ttyS2 socket" to /etc/bluetooth/uart

With selinux-policy-targeted enforcing, this is not successful.

When permissive, audit.log shows:
type=AVC msg=audit(1124148334.047:16760662): avc:  denied  { ioctl } for  pid=5796 comm="hciattach" name="ttyS2" dev=tmpfs ino=6125 scontext=root:system_r:bluetooth_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:tty_device_t tclass=chr_file
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1124148334.047:16760662): arch=40000003 syscall=54 success=yes exit=0 a0=3 a1=540b a2=2 a3=3 items=0 pid=5796 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 comm="hciattach" exe="/usr/sbin/hciattach"
type=AVC_PATH msg=audit(1124148334.047:16760662):  path="/dev/ttyS2"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set selinux targeted policy to enforcing
2. Start bluetooth service with serial device defined in /etc/bluetooth/uart
3. Bluetooth device is not initialised
