Description James Davidson 2007-11-16 02:22:29 EST
Detailed Description
SELinux denied access requested by racoon. It is not expected that this access
is required by racoon and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is
also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

You can allow this for now by executing 

# audit2allow -M mypol -i /var/log/audit/audit.log 
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-57.fc8

I still have this problem with selinux-policy-targeted-3.0.8-62.fc8
Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2007-12-04 13:31:16 EST
On top of that, racoon is not allowed to write its pid file. I had to add the
following policy module :

module racoonipsecnat 1.0;

require {
        type ipsecnat_port_t;
        type racoon_t;
        type var_run_t;
        class udp_socket name_bind;
        class file { read write };

#============= racoon_t ==============
allow racoon_t ipsecnat_port_t:udp_socket name_bind;
allow racoon_t var_run_t:file write;
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2007-12-05 10:25:35 EST
You are right.  There is a bug in the policy and we need a label for


chcon -t ipsec_var_run_t /var/run/racoon.pid

Should eliminate the need for the second rule.
