Description Adam Kovari 2010-04-29 13:38:44 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/ssh "read" access on .ssh.

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by ssh. It is not expected that this access is
required by ssh 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 FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2010-04-29 14:48:32 UTC
Looks like you set up .ssh as a symbolic link somewhere which is causing this avc?

Comment 2 Adam Kovari 2010-04-29 14:51:38 UTC
lrwxrwxrwx.  1 root root    16 apr 28 18:42 .ssh -> /home/adam/.ssh/

Is that a problem?

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-04-29 18:31:55 UTC
No but that is what it is complaining about.  You can add these rules using audit2allow 

# grep ssh_home_t /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M myssh
# semodule -i myssh.pp

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-04-29 18:32:18 UTC
Closing as not a bug since this is local customization
