NAME
nscd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the nscd processes DESCRIPTION
Security-Enhanced Linux secures the nscd processes via flexible mandatory access control. The nscd processes execute with the nscd_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 nscd_t ENTRYPOINTS
The nscd_t SELinux type can be entered via the nscd_exec_t file type. The default entrypoint paths for the nscd_t domain are the following: /usr/sbin/nscd 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 nscd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their nscd pro- cesses in as secure a method as possible. The following process types are defined for nscd: nscd_t Note: semanage permissive -a nscd_t can be used to make the process type nscd_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. nscd policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run nscd with the tightest access possible. If you want to allow confined applications to use nscd shared memory, you must turn on the nscd_use_shm boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P nscd_use_shm 1 If you want to allow users to resolve user passwd entries directly from ldap rather then using a sssd server, you must turn on the authlo- gin_nsswitch_use_ldap boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P authlogin_nsswitch_use_ldap 1 If you want to allow all daemons to write corefiles to /, you must turn on the daemons_dump_core boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P daemons_dump_core 1 If you want to enable cluster mode for daemons, you must turn on the daemons_enable_cluster_mode boolean. Enabled by default. setsebool -P daemons_enable_cluster_mode 1 If you want to allow all daemons to use tcp wrappers, you must turn on the daemons_use_tcp_wrapper boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P daemons_use_tcp_wrapper 1 If you want to allow all daemons the ability to read/write terminals, you must turn on the daemons_use_tty boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P daemons_use_tty 1 If you want to deny any process from ptracing or debugging any other processes, you must turn on the deny_ptrace boolean. Enabled by default. setsebool -P deny_ptrace 1 If you want to allow all domains to use other domains file descriptors, you must turn on the domain_fd_use boolean. Enabled by default. setsebool -P domain_fd_use 1 If you want to allow all domains to have the kernel load modules, you must turn on the domain_kernel_load_modules boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P domain_kernel_load_modules 1 If you want to allow all domains to execute in fips_mode, you must turn on the fips_mode boolean. Enabled by default. setsebool -P fips_mode 1 If you want to enable reading of urandom for all domains, you must turn on the global_ssp boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P global_ssp 1 If you want to allow confined applications to run with kerberos, you must turn on the kerberos_enabled boolean. Enabled by default. setsebool -P kerberos_enabled 1 If you want to allow system to run with NIS, you must turn on the nis_enabled boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P nis_enabled 1 If you want to allow samba to act as the domain controller, add users, groups and change passwords, you must turn on the samba_domain_con- troller boolean. Disabled by default. setsebool -P samba_domain_controller 1 NSSWITCH DOMAIN
If you want to allow users to resolve user passwd entries directly from ldap rather then using a sssd server for the nscd_t, you must turn on the authlogin_nsswitch_use_ldap boolean. setsebool -P authlogin_nsswitch_use_ldap 1 If you want to allow confined applications to run with kerberos for the nscd_t, you must turn on the kerberos_enabled boolean. setsebool -P kerberos_enabled 1 MANAGED FILES
The SELinux process type nscd_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. cluster_conf_t /etc/cluster(/.*)? 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 nscd_log_t /var/log/nscd.log.* nscd_var_run_t /var/db/nscd(/.*)? /var/run/nscd(/.*)? /var/cache/nscd(/.*)? /var/run/nscd.pid /var/run/.nscd_socket root_t / /initrd security_t /selinux 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 nscd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their nscd processes in as secure a method as possible. EQUIVALENCE DIRECTORIES nscd policy stores data with multiple different file context types under the /var/run/nscd directory. If you would like to store the data in a different directory you can use the semanage command to create an equivalence mapping. If you wanted to store this data under the /srv dirctory you would execute the following command: semanage fcontext -a -e /var/run/nscd /srv/nscd restorecon -R -v /srv/nscd STANDARD FILE CONTEXT SELinux defines the file context types for the nscd, 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 nscd_exec_t '/srv/nscd/content(/.*)?' restorecon -R -v /srv/mynscd_content Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files. The following file types are defined for nscd: nscd_exec_t - Set files with the nscd_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the nscd_t domain. nscd_initrc_exec_t - Set files with the nscd_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the nscd_initrc_t domain. nscd_log_t - Set files with the nscd_log_t type, if you want to treat the data as nscd log data, usually stored under the /var/log directory. nscd_unit_file_t - Set files with the nscd_unit_file_t type, if you want to treat the files as nscd unit content. nscd_var_run_t - Set files with the nscd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the nscd files under the /run or /var/run directory. Paths: /var/db/nscd(/.*)?, /var/run/nscd(/.*)?, /var/cache/nscd(/.*)?, /var/run/nscd.pid, /var/run/.nscd_socket 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. 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 boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
