    SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/sshd (sshd_t) "setkeycreate" to <Unknown>

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/sshd. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /usr/sbin/sshd 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.

Allowing Access
    You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2007-12-03 02:54:19 EST
Sshd now calls setkeycreatecon so pam_keyinit can work correctly. This must be
allowed in policy.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-12-03 13:02:37 EST
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-63.fc8
