Description Daniel Walsh 2012-01-17 10:53:14 EST
I would like to propose using PrivateTmp for ntop systemd unit file
This should make the use of /tmp directory more secure
and avoid users from being able to potentially effect it.

Comment 1 Sven Lankes 2012-01-22 14:38:20 EST
I haven't debugged this further yet but enabling PrivateTmp doesn't work out of the box:

Jan 22 20:35:09 f17 ntop[896]:   **WARNING** gzwrite error (null)(0)
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2012-01-23 15:24:01 EST
Are you testing on a Rawhide or F16.  This will ONLY work on Rawhide with the systemd-38 or greater.
Comment 3 Sven Lankes 2012-01-23 15:46:25 EST

Rawhide with systemd-38-4.fc17.x86_64
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2012-01-24 11:03:31 EST
Ok, any idea what ntop is trying to do?
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2012-02-06 15:46:12 EST
Any change on this bug.  We are coming up to Feature Freeze, and would like some comment on this bug.

I need to update the status on this feature.

Thanks for your help.
Comment 6 Sven Lankes 2012-08-02 00:19:21 EDT
The latest (5.0) ntop release does work fine with PrivateTmp.

I've built it for rawhide and will probably also do an f17 build
after some more testing.
