Security-Enhanced Linux secures the svirt_socket processes via flexible mandatory access control.
The svirt_socket processes execute with the svirt_socket_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep svirt_socket_t
You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to psP Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux svirt_socket policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their svirt_socket processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for svirt_socket:
Note: semanage permissive -a svirt_socket_t can be used to make the process type svirt_socket_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
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 boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
