Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, SELinux returned AVC denial messages during attempts to attach an LVM volume to a Red Hat OpenStack 3 instance. The relevant SELinux policy rules have been modified to add an additional MCS attribute for hald_t SELinux domain, and AVC denial messages are no longer returned when attaching LVM volume to a Red Hat OpenStack 3 instance.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #965311 +++

Description of problem:

[root@localhost ~]# grep AVC /var/log/audit/audit.log 
type=AVC msg=audit(1369085100.398:307633): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=9144 comm="hald-probe-stor" path="/dev/sda" dev=devtmpfs ino=147635 scontext=system_u:system_r:hald_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:svirt_image_t:s0:c388,c537 tclass=blk_file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 

How reproducible: Unknown; was not able to reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install
2. Create instance
3. Create volume
4. Attach instance to volume

Actual results: AVC denial

I will have to reproduce this and have specific steps.

Possible test reproducer for attaching a volume to an instance:

	# Create a cinder volume, and list it
	$ cinder create --display_name=bootable_volume 1
	$ cinder list

	# Add the cinder volume to env. This is the output of "cinder list"
	$ VOLUME_ID=2c370395-7f59-4c89-b312-ba35dbb986c0
	$ echo $VOLUME_ID

	# boot an instance
	$ nova boot --image e1b71961-d66d-4315-8e83-32aa1bd44f3f --flavor 1 --key_name oskey

	# Ensure the above booted instance is ACTIVE
	$ nova list | grep f17-builder
	$ cinder list
	# Attach a volume
	$ nova volume-attach f17-builder 2c370395-7f59-4c89-b312-ba35dbb986c0 /dev/vdb
	$ cinder list
	$ ssh -i oskey.priv

I reproduced this (the logged AVCs) by following the same steps as above: install, boot vm, attach an LVM iSCSI Cinder volume.

But, it doesn't seem to break anything, and the attach works.

Unclear what is accessing /dev/sda, maybe something triggered by iscsiadm.

Same openstack-selinux ver, openstack-nova-* 2013.1.1-3.

--- Additional comment from Eric Harney on 2013-06-06 16:17:21 EDT ---

Note: /dev/sda is the device node for the disk created when the iSCSI initiator logs in during volume attach.

This would be a general bug in policy and would happen with or without openstack, it should be fixed.

Could we get qa_ack+?
Comment 4 Miroslav Grepl 2013-06-12 06:53:03 EDT
Actually we need to add a mcs attribute.
