:SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/rngd from 'getattr' accesses on the file /proc/sys/kernel/random/poolsize.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If vous pensez que rngd devrait être autorisé à accéder getattr sur poolsize file par défaut.
:Then vous devriez rapporter ceci en tant qu'anomalie.
:Vous pouvez générer un module de stratégie local pour autoriser cet accès.
:autoriser cet accès pour le moment en exécutant :
:# grep rngd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
