Security-Enhanced Linux secures the ptal processes via flexible mandatory access control.
The ptal processes execute with the ptal_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep ptal_t
The ptal_t SELinux type can be entered via the ptal_exec_t file type.
The default entrypoint paths for the ptal_t domain are the following:
You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to psP Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux ptal policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ptal processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for ptal:
Note: semanage permissive -a ptal_t can be used to make the process type ptal_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still generated.
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
You can see the types associated with a port by using the following command:
semanage port -l
Policy governs the access confined processes have to these ports. SELinux ptal policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ptal processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following port types are defined for ptal:
Default Defined Ports: tcp 5703
The SELinux process type ptal_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.
You can see the context of a file using the -Z option to lsP Policy governs the access confined processes have to these files. SELinux ptal policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ptal processes in as secure a method as possible.
STANDARD FILE CONTEXT
SELinux defines the file context types for the ptal, 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 ptal_var_run_t '/srv/myptal_content(/.*)?'
restorecon -R -v /srv/myptal_content
Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files.
The following file types are defined for ptal:
- Set files with the ptal_etc_t type, if you want to store ptal files in the /etc directories.
- Set files with the ptal_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the ptal_t domain.
- Set files with the ptal_var_run_t type, if you want to store the ptal files under the /run or /var/run directory.
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.
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 port can also be used to manipulate the port definitions
semanage boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
