Description Johan Hedin 2013-04-17 19:27:31 UTC
Description of problem:

For nagios, there exists a nagios_unconfined_plugin_exec_t file context that can be used for plugins that not yet have a dedicated context.

But, the current policy assigns bin_t to all files in /usr/lib(64)?/nagios/plugins that does not have a specific context. By comparison, munin plugins in
/usr/share/munin/plugins that does not have a specific selinux file context get unconfined_munin_plugin_exec_t automatically.

Doing the same for nagios plugins would make life easier for those who build a lot of there own plugins.

Three files in /usr/lib(64)?/nagios/plugins from the nagios-plugins package get the context bin_t from the current policy so something like replacing:

/usr/lib/nagios/plugins(/.*)?     system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0


/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/.*       system_u:object_r:nagios_unconfined_plugin_exec_t:s0
/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/negate   system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0
/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/urlize   system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0
/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/utils.sh system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0

should do the trick.
