Description Bill Nottingham 2009-05-04 15:03:37 EDT
Description of problem:

A patch was added to the shutdown/reboot/runlevel tools to talk to the audit daemon in F-11, to create audit events for reboot and runlevel changes.

Ergo, any confined domain that executes these commands needs policy like:

require {
        type consolekit_t;
        class capability audit_write;
        class netlink_audit_socket { write nlmsg_relay create read };

#============= consolekit_t ==============
allow consolekit_t self:capability audit_write;
allow consolekit_t self:netlink_audit_socket { write nlmsg_relay create read };

I suspect there's other apps that can call shutdwon besides consolekit_t ; as it states in the sample policy, creating a shutdown domain may be useful in the future.
