Re: This avc is a constraint violation! Stuck resolving this via --update on sepolgen generated file

Hi,

I am stuck trying to create a selinux policy for the Software Test 
Automation Framework (STAF) daemon on Fedora 14.
 From the violations, it seems that STAF wants to send out emails and 
restart iptables, which is behavior that should be allowed.

I've created the inital policy with sepolgen and did run the resulting 
.sh script with "--update" a number of times, but so far no success in 
getting a policy that works without generating violations.

I have included the resulting te file as an attachment.
You have made a mistake. When writing policy one should always try and
take care of any transitions first.

Your policy allows your stafproc_t process to execute iptables but this
is wrong i suspect. I suspect you added that because stafproc_t needs to
restart the iptables service. (this requires a domain transition to the
init script domain. The iptables init script file running in the init
script domain will execute iptables with a domain transition.

You added a lot of policy in your type enforcement file that likely
should not be there. Just because you did not take care of this
transition described above before allowing anything else.

If you want some interactive guidance with your policy, please stop by
#fedora-selinux on irc.freenode.net
Dominick,

thanks for the fast response. I'll add the transition you suggested in the other email and start over with a small type enforcement file.
What I was trying to do is to use sepolgen to generate a minimalistic policy, then run the processes through its paces and add
observed violations via --update.
Regarding transitions, is there a way to programmatically figure out what transitions a process might need or do you have to know something about the processes to construct required transitions ?
I will gladly take you up on the interactive guidance early next week.

Thanks and have a great weekend
Michael



      
Any ideas about what could be wrong would be greatly appreciated.
