Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/unbound-anchor from 'name_bind' accesses on the udp_socket .

*****  Plugin bind_ports (92.2 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to allow /usr/sbin/unbound-anchor to bind to network port 26783
Then you need to modify the port type.
# semanage port -a -t  -p udp 26783

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (7.83 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow system to run with NIS
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'nis_enabled' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
setsebool -P nis_enabled 1

*****  Plugin catchall (1.41 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that unbound-anchor should be allowed name_bind access on the  udp_socket by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep unbound-anchor /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

So you have a cronjob which runs unbound-anchor, right?

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2013-08-02 10:56:07 EDT
Well it does at somepoint.  Probably need a transition from system_cronjob_t to named_t

Is it part of dnssec-trigger?
Comment 6 Paul Wouters 2013-08-05 06:55:09 EDT
unbound-anchor is doing DNS queries directly without using the system resolver (it might not be running yet or might contain an old broken root key)

So it does need the same permissions as a "dns server" would, so perhaps allowing it named_t is the right choice here. That might also apply to more applicatins that use libunbound directly (i.e. libreswan)
