Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201570
secmark patch for iptables
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
Iptables lacks the necessary patches to enable secmark. Secmark is a new network
labeling scheme for SELinux that is a priority for RHEL 5 / FC6. Most of the
work is complete:
1) Kernel portion is accepted upstream and included in rawhide kernels
2) Iptables patches are accepted upstream (can be found in iptables svn)
The latest iptables release (1.3.5) does _not_ include the necessary patches, so
the only work remaining is to include a simple backport in the rawhide packages.
I have attached a patch that is rebased to apply cleanly on top of the other
iptables patches in the current iptables rpm.
More information can be found at http://people.redhat.com/jmorris/selinux/secmark/.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.3.5 of iptables
