RFE: [PATCH] backport GetConnectionSELinuxSecurityContext functionality to RHEL4
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:44:38 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Determine your client's ID.
2. Attempt to read your own SELinux context via the bus daemon.
org.freedesktop.DBus does not understand message GetConnectionSELinuxSecurityContext
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.
