cachefiles_kernel_selinSELinux Policy cachefiles_kcachefiles_kernel_selinux(8)NAMEcachefiles_kernel_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the
Security-Enhanced Linux secures the cachefiles_kernel processes via
flexible mandatory access control.
The cachefiles_kernel processes execute with the cachefiles_kernel_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 cachefiles_kernel_t
SELinux defines process types (domains) for each process running on the

Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux
cachefiles_kernel policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their
cachefiles_kernel processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for cachefiles_kernel:
Note: semanage permissive -a cachefiles_kernel_t can be used to make
the process type cachefiles_kernel_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.
cachefiles_kernel policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans
that allow you to manipulate the policy and run cachefiles_kernel with
the tightest access possible.
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 cachefiles_kernel_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
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.
semanage module can also be used to enable/disable/install/remove pol‐
semanage boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux pol‐
