Description Nathaniel McCallum 2007-07-30 18:36:26 EDT
I have cyrus-imapd configured to use saslauthd for authentication (the default
configuration).  For some reason, the imapd process cannot connect to the
saslauthd daemon.  The log says:
kernel: audit(1185169605.092:25): avc:  denied  { connectto } for  pid=3730
comm="imapd" name="mux" scontext=root:system_r:cyrus_t:s0
tcontext=root:system_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=unix_stream_socket

'ls -Z /var/run/saslauthd/mux' shows:
srwxrwxrwx  root root system_u:object_r:saslauthd_var_run_t /var/run/saslauthd/mux

'allow cyrus_t unconfined_t:unix_stream_socket connectto;' permits me to
workaround this issue.

Why is saslauthd running as unconfined_t?  Did you run it by hand, ie outside
the init script?

If it runs within the init script this should work.
