Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-01-27 19:52:49 UTC
Description of problem:
I've got a D-BUS service provider which can use the SELinux context of a client
as a factor in authorization decisions when it's servicing its clients, but the
version of D-BUS which is in RHEL4 doesn't support the
GetConnectionSELinuxSecurityContext bus methods.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.22-12.EL.5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Determine your client's ID.
2. Attempt to read your own SELinux context via the bus daemon.
  
Actual results:
org.freedesktop.DBus does not understand message GetConnectionSELinuxSecurityContext

Expected results:
My context.

Additional info:
If this is implemented, please do so in a way that's detectable at compile-time,
so that I can continue to invisotext the portions of my documentation which
describe functionality which depends on this function.
