abrt_upload_watch_selinSELinux Policy abrt_upload_abrt_upload_watch_selinux(8)NAMEabrt_upload_watch_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the
Security-Enhanced Linux secures the abrt_upload_watch processes via
flexible mandatory access control.
The abrt_upload_watch processes execute with the abrt_upload_watch_t
SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by exe‐
cuting the ps command with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep abrt_upload_watch_t
The abrt_upload_watch_t SELinux type can be entered via the
abrt_upload_watch_exec_t file type.
The default entrypoint paths for the abrt_upload_watch_t domain are the

abrt_upload_watch policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their
abrt_upload_watch processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for abrt_upload_watch:
Note: semanage permissive -a abrt_upload_watch_t can be used to make
the process type abrt_upload_watch_t permissive. SELinux does not deny
access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) mes‐
sages are still generated.
SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required.
abrt_upload_watch policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans
that allow you to manipulate the policy and run abrt_upload_watch with
the tightest access possible.
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
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
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
The SELinux process type abrt_upload_watch_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

STANDARD FILE CONTEXT
SELinux defines the file context types for the abrt_upload_watch, 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 abrt_upload_watch_exec_t
restorecon -R -v /srv/myabrt_upload_watch_content
Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that
match multiple files.
The following file types are defined for abrt_upload_watch:
- Set files with the abrt_upload_watch_exec_t type, if you want to
transition an executable to the abrt_upload_watch_t domain.
- Set files with the abrt_upload_watch_tmp_t type, if you want to store
abrt upload watch 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 data‐
base. You will need to use restorecon to apply the labels.
If you want to share files with multiple domains (Apache, FTP, rsync,
Samba), you can set a file context of public_content_t and public_con‐
tent_rw_t. These context allow any of the above domains to read the
content. If you want a particular domain to write to the public_con‐
tent_rw_t domain, you must set the appropriate boolean.
Allow abrt_upload_watch servers to read the /var/abrt_upload_watch
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/abrt_upload_watch(/.*)?"
restorecon -F -R -v /var/abrt_upload_watch
Allow abrt_upload_watch servers to read and write
/var/abrt_upload_watch/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 abrt_upload_watch_anon_write boolean.
semanage fcontext -a-t public_content_rw_t
restorecon -F -R -v /var/abrt_upload_watch/incoming
setsebool -P abrt_upload_watch_anon_write 1
If you want to allow abrt-handle-upload to modify public files used for
public file transfer services in /var/spool/abrt-upload/., you must
turn on the abrt_upload_watch_anon_write boolean.
setsebool -P abrt_upload_watch_anon_write 1
semanage fcontext can also be used to manipulate default file context
semanage permissive can also be used to manipulate whether or not a
process type is permissive.
