Description Rubio 2012-11-28 22:33:40 UTC
Get this denial:

type=1400 audit(1354132378.229:377): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=31781 comm="sshd" name="mysql" dev=sda3 ino=4457413 scontext=system_u:system_r:sshd_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:object_r:mysqld_db_t:s0 tclass=dir

when trying to ssh as mysql using ssh keys.
policy does not permit sshd to look into the mysql home directory to look for authorized_keys.
