Description Ulrich Drepper 2007-04-02 16:33:32 EDT
Description of problem:
After we finally managed to fix up nscd to use the libcap codeadded a year ago
nscd now needs more permissions:

audit(1175545373.669:111): avc:  denied  { setcap } for  pid=30769 comm="nscd"
scontext=system_u:system_r:nscd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:nscd_t:s0
tclass=process

libcap was added for SELinux  purposes.  The patch was initially written by
James Antill.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-2.5.10-2.fc7.noarch


How reproducible:
always


Steps to Reproduce:
1.get glibc-2.5.90-20 or later
2.(re)start nscd
3.
  
Actual results:
above audit message

Expected results:
no such message

Additional info:
Simply adding

allow nscd_t self:process setcap;

should do.  This also much go into RHEL5.1 and perhaps even RHEL4.6 (but here I
defer to Jakub to say whether he has t hat code in RHEL4's glibc).
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-04-02 17:11:24 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.5.11-2
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2007-04-03 01:12:21 EDT
It is needed for RHEL5.1 and RHEL4.6 too (the latter is where it actually has
been found - when QA was testing the backport).
Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2007-05-05 16:23:25 EDT
Dan, do we need a separate bug to get these changes into RHEL4+5?
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2007-05-07 10:28:18 EDT
Should already be in there for u5.  I believe.selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.145
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 10:17:13 EDT
Should be fixed in the current release
