Description Milos Malik 2010-05-11 14:15:40 UTC
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
# semanage node -l
IP Address         Netmask            Protocol Context

# semanage node -a -p ipv6 -t node_t -M ::1 ::1
# semanage node -l
IP Address         Netmask            Protocol Context              ipv4  system_u:object_r:node_t:s0 
# semanage node -d -p ipv6 -t node_t -M ::1 ::1
/usr/sbin/semanage: Addr ::1 is not defined
# semanage node -l
IP Address         Netmask            Protocol Context              ipv4  system_u:object_r:node_t:s0 
# semanage node -d -p ipv4 -t node_t -M
# semanage node -l
IP Address         Netmask            Protocol Context


Actual results:
semanage handles IPv6 addresses incorrectly

Expected results:
semanage handles IPv6 addresses correctly

Strange no data gets written and no error is thrown.

Comment 2 Stephen Smalley 2010-05-18 13:15:58 UTC
Looks like it is ignoring the protocol specifier (-p ipv6) and just always using ipv4/0.
Looking at the code, I see that:
seobject.py:nodeRecords:__add calls semanage_node_create() and semanage_node_set_addr(), but not semanage_node_set_proto().

Down in libsepol then, I see that:
sepol_node_create() defaults to SEPOL_PROTO_IP4.
sepol_node_set_addr() does not check or set the proto value even though it is supplied.

Options for fixing:
- Change seobject.py to call semanage_node_set_proto(proto), and change sepol_node_set_addr() to assert that node->proto == proto, -or-
- Change sepol_node_set_addr() to implicitly set node->proto to the specified value.

I don't think anyone has previously tried semanage node with ipv6.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-19 18:27:44 UTC
Ok that fixes it so it can be added.  There seems to be a bug in semanage_node_query though.  It returns 1, None, when I try to modify the ::1 node.

Comment 4 Stephen Smalley 2010-05-21 12:22:48 UTC
Did you specify the mask and address precisely?

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-21 12:31:28 UTC
# semanage node -l
IP Address         Netmask            Protocol Context              ipv4  system_u:object_r:node_t:s0 
::1                ::1                ipv6  system_u:object_r:node_t:s0 

semanage node -m -t httpd_t -pipv6 -M ::1 ::1
Segmentation fault

      def __modify(self, addr, mask, proto, serange, setype):
               if addr == "":
                       raise ValueError(_("Node Address is required"))

               if mask == "":
                       raise ValueError(_("Node Netmask is required"))
                      proto = self.protocol.index(proto)
                      raise ValueError(_("Unknown or missing protocol"))

               if serange == "" and setype == "":
                       raise ValueError(_("Requires setype or serange"))

               (rc, k) = semanage_node_key_create(self.sh, addr, mask, proto)
               if rc < 0:
                       raise ValueError(_("Could not create key for %s") % addr)

               (rc, exists) = semanage_node_exists(self.sh, k)
               if rc < 0:
                       raise ValueError(_("Could not check if addr %s is defined") % addr)
               if not exists:
                       raise ValueError(_("Addr %s is not defined") % addr)

               (rc, node) = semanage_node_query(self.sh, k)
               if rc < 0:
                       raise ValueError(_("Could not query addr %s") % addr)

               con = semanage_node_get_con(node)
 BLOWS UP HERE because node==None

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-21 12:34:53 UTC
I can fix the problem by changing

               (rc, node) = semanage_node_query(self.sh, k)


               (rc, node) = semanage_node_query_local(self.sh, k)
