Description Marc Schiffbauer 2007-07-09 13:09:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061201 Firefox/ (Ubuntu-feisty)

Description of problem:
RHEL5 supplies selinux modules for several services.
But AFAICT there is no module for the ipsec-tools package.

As this is a network service in security environments I would like to see a module supplied for ipsec services in RHEL5.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
see "semodule -l" and "ls -lZ /usr/sbin/racoon*"

-rwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:sbin_t         /usr/sbin/racoon
-rwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:sbin_t         /usr/sbin/racoonctl

Actual Results:
racoon seems not to be secured by SELinux

Expected Results:
racoon running in its own exec domain

Additional info:
This bug might be classified as Feature Request.
Or am I wrong and racoon / ipsec in RHEL5 is already secured in RHEL5 and I do not see it?
