NAME
ftpd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the ftpd processes DESCRIPTION
Security-Enhanced Linux secures the ftpd processes via flexible mandatory access control. The ftpd processes execute with the ftpd_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier. For example: ps -eZ | grep ftpd_t ENTRYPOINTS
The ftpd_t SELinux type can be entered via the ftpd_exec_t file type. The default entrypoint paths for the ftpd_t domain are the following: /usr/sbin/ftpwho, /usr/sbin/vsftpd, /usr/sbin/in.ftpd, /usr/sbin/proftpd, /usr/sbin/muddleftpd, /usr/kerberos/sbin/ftpd, /etc/cron.monthly/proftpd PROCESS TYPES
SELinux defines process types (domains) for each process running on the system You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to ps Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux ftpd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ftpd pro- cesses in as secure a method as possible. The following process types are defined for ftpd: ftpd_t, ftpdctl_t Note: semanage permissive -a ftpd_t can be used to make the process type ftpd_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still generated. BOOLEANS
SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. ftpd policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run ftpd with the tightest access possible. If you want to determine whether ftpd can read and write files in user home directories, you must turn on the ftp_home_dir boolean. Dis- abled by default. setsebool -P ftp_home_dir 1 If you want to determine whether ftpd can connect to all unreserved ports, you must turn on the ftpd_connect_all_unreserved boolean. Dis- abled by default. setsebool -P ftpd_connect_all_unreserved 1 If you want to determine whether ftpd can connect to databases over the TCP network, you must turn on the ftpd_connect_db boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P ftpd_connect_db 1 If you want to determine whether ftpd can login to local users and can read and write all files on the system, governed by DAC, you must turn on the ftpd_full_access boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P ftpd_full_access 1 If you want to determine whether ftpd can use CIFS used for public file transfer services, you must turn on the ftpd_use_cifs boolean.

SELinux defines port types to represent TCP and UDP ports. You can see the types associated with a port by using the following command: semanage port -l Policy governs the access confined processes have to these ports. SELinux ftpd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ftpd processes in as secure a method as possible. The following port types are defined for ftpd: ftp_data_port_t Default Defined Ports: tcp 20 ftp_port_t Default Defined Ports: tcp 21,989,990 udp 989,990 MANAGED FILES
The SELinux process type ftpd_t can manage files labeled with the following file types. The paths listed are the default paths for these file types. Note the processes UID still need to have DAC permissions. cifs_t cluster_var_lib_t /var/lib/pcsd(/.*)? /var/lib/cluster(/.*)? /var/lib/openais(/.*)? /var/lib/pengine(/.*)? /var/lib/corosync(/.*)? /usr/lib/heartbeat(/.*)? /var/lib/heartbeat(/.*)? /var/lib/pacemaker(/.*)? cluster_var_run_t /var/run/crm(/.*)? /var/run/cman_.* /var/run/rsctmp(/.*)? /var/run/aisexec.* /var/run/heartbeat(/.*)? /var/run/cpglockd.pid /var/run/corosync.pid /var/run/rgmanager.pid /var/run/cluster/rgmanager.sk krb5_host_rcache_t /var/cache/krb5rcache(/.*)? /var/tmp/nfs_0 /var/tmp/DNS_25 /var/tmp/host_0 /var/tmp/imap_0 /var/tmp/HTTP_23 /var/tmp/HTTP_48 /var/tmp/ldap_55 /var/tmp/ldap_487 /var/tmp/ldapmap1_0 non_security_file_type user_home_type all user home files user_tmp_t /var/run/user(/.*)? /tmp/hsperfdata_root /var/tmp/hsperfdata_root /tmp/gconfd-.* FILE CONTEXTS
SELinux requires files to have an extended attribute to define the file type. You can see the context of a file using the -Z option to ls Policy governs the access confined processes have to these files. SELinux ftpd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ftpd processes in as secure a method as possible. STANDARD FILE CONTEXT SELinux defines the file context types for the ftpd, if you wanted to store files with these types in a diffent paths, you need to execute the semanage command to sepecify alternate labeling and then use restorecon to put the labels on disk. semanage fcontext -a -t ftpd_etc_t '/srv/ftpd/content(/.*)?' restorecon -R -v /srv/myftpd_content Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files. The following file types are defined for ftpd: ftpd_etc_t - Set files with the ftpd_etc_t type, if you want to store ftpd files in the /etc directories. ftpd_exec_t - Set files with the ftpd_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the ftpd_t domain. Paths: /usr/sbin/ftpwho, /usr/sbin/vsftpd, /usr/sbin/in.ftpd, /usr/sbin/proftpd, /usr/sbin/muddleftpd, /usr/kerberos/sbin/ftpd, /etc/cron.monthly/proftpd ftpd_initrc_exec_t - Set files with the ftpd_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the ftpd_initrc_t domain. Paths: /etc/rc.d/init.d/vsftpd, /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd ftpd_keytab_t - Set files with the ftpd_keytab_t type, if you want to treat the files as kerberos keytab files. ftpd_lock_t - Set files with the ftpd_lock_t type, if you want to treat the files as ftpd lock data, stored under the /var/lock directory ftpd_tmp_t - Set files with the ftpd_tmp_t type, if you want to store ftpd temporary files in the /tmp directories. ftpd_tmpfs_t - Set files with the ftpd_tmpfs_t type, if you want to store ftpd files on a tmpfs file system. ftpd_unit_file_t - Set files with the ftpd_unit_file_t type, if you want to treat the files as ftpd unit content. ftpd_var_run_t - Set files with the ftpd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the ftpd files under the /run or /var/run directory. ftpdctl_exec_t - Set files with the ftpdctl_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the ftpdctl_t domain. ftpdctl_tmp_t - Set files with the ftpdctl_tmp_t type, if you want to store ftpdctl temporary files in the /tmp directories. Note: File context can be temporarily modified with the chcon command. If you want to permanently change the file context you need to use the semanage fcontext command. This will modify the SELinux labeling database. You will need to use restorecon to apply the labels. SHARING FILES
If you want to share files with multiple domains (Apache, FTP, rsync, Samba), you can set a file context of public_content_t and pub- lic_content_rw_t. These context allow any of the above domains to read the content. If you want a particular domain to write to the pub- lic_content_rw_t domain, you must set the appropriate boolean. Allow ftpd servers to read the /var/ftpd directory by adding the public_content_t file type to the directory and by restoring the file type. semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_t "/var/ftpd(/.*)?" restorecon -F -R -v /var/ftpd Allow ftpd servers to read and write /var/ftpd/incoming by adding the public_content_rw_t type to the directory and by restoring the file type. You also need to turn on the ftpd_anon_write boolean. semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_rw_t "/var/ftpd/incoming(/.*)?" restorecon -F -R -v /var/ftpd/incoming setsebool -P ftpd_anon_write 1 If you want to determine whether ftpd can modify public files used for public file transfer services. Directories/Files must be labeled public_content_rw_t., you must turn on the ftpd_anon_write boolean. setsebool -P ftpd_anon_write 1 COMMANDS
semanage fcontext can also be used to manipulate default file context mappings. semanage permissive can also be used to manipulate whether or not a process type is permissive. semanage module can also be used to enable/disable/install/remove policy modules. semanage port can also be used to manipulate the port definitions semanage boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
