cpucontrol_selinux(8) SELinux Policy cpucontrol cpucontrol_selinux(8)NAMEcpucontrol_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the cpucontrol
Security-Enhanced Linux secures the cpucontrol processes via flexible
mandatory access control.
The cpucontrol processes execute with the cpucontrol_t SELinux type.
You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps
command with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep cpucontrol_t
The cpucontrol_t SELinux type can be entered via the cpucontrol_exec_t
The default entrypoint paths for the cpucontrol_t domain are the fol‐

cpucontrol policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their cpu‐
control processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for cpucontrol:
Note: semanage permissive -a cpucontrol_t can be used to make the
process type cpucontrol_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to
permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are
SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. cpucon‐
trol policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow
you to manipulate the policy and run cpucontrol with the tightest
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
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
SELinux requires files to have an extended attribute to define the file
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 cpucontrol policy is very flexible allowing users to setup
their cpucontrol processes in as secure a method as possible.
STANDARD FILE CONTEXT
SELinux defines the file context types for the cpucontrol, 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 cpucontrol_conf_t '/srv/cpucontrol/con‐
restorecon -R -v /srv/mycpucontrol_content
Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that
match multiple files.
The following file types are defined for cpucontrol:
- Set files with the cpucontrol_conf_t type, if you want to treat the
files as cpucontrol configuration data, usually stored under the /etc
- Set files with the cpucontrol_exec_t type, if you want to transition
an executable to the cpucontrol_t domain.
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.
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
