basic policy for rhnsd
No AVCs appeared even if I used start, stop, restart actions.
Could we treat it with rhsmcertd policy?
# chcon -t rhsmcertd_exec_t `which rhnsd`
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

It seems so. I see no AVCs after "service rhnsd restart".
... and the daemon runs as rhsmcertd_t in enforcing mode.
