httpd_selinux — Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the httpd processes

Description

Security-Enhanced Linux secures the httpd processes via flexible mandatory access control.

The httpd processes execute with the httpd_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.

For example:

ps -eZ | grep httpd_t

Entrypoints

The httpd_t SELinux type can be entered via the httpd_exec_t file type.

The default entrypoint paths for the httpd_t domain are the following:

/usr/sbin/httpd(.worker)?, /usr/sbin/apache(2)?, /usr/lib/apache-ssl/.+, /usr/sbin/apache-ssl(2)?, /usr/sbin/nginx, /usr/sbin/thttpd, /usr/sbin/php-fpm, /usr/sbin/cherokee, /usr/sbin/lighttpd, /usr/sbin/httpd.event, /usr/bin/mongrel_rails, /usr/sbin/htcacheclean

Process Types

SELinux defines process types (domains) for each process running on the system

You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to psbP

Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux httpd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their httpd processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for httpd:

httpd_t, httpd_helper_t, httpd_php_t, httpd_rotatelogs_t, httpd_suexec_t, httpd_sys_script_t, httpd_user_script_t, httpd_passwd_t, httpd_unconfined_script_t

Note: semanage permissive -a httpd_t can be used to make the process type httpd_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still generated.

Booleans

SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. httpd policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run httpd with the tightest access possible.

Port Types

SELinux defines port types to represent TCP and UDP ports.

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 httpd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their httpd processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following port types are defined for httpd:

http_cache_port_t

Default Defined Ports: tcp 8080,8118,8123,10001-10010 udp 3130

http_port_t

Default Defined Ports: tcp 80,81,443,488,8008,8009,8443,9000

Managed Files

The SELinux process type httpd_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.

File Contexts

SELinux requires files to have an extended attribute to define the file type.

You can see the context of a file using the -Z option to lsbP

Policy governs the access confined processes have to these files. SELinux httpd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their httpd processes in as secure a method as possible.

EQUIVALENCE DIRECTORIES

httpd policy stores data with multiple different file context types under the /var/lib/php directory. If you would like to store the data in a different directory you can use the semanage command to create an equivalence mapping. If you wanted to store this data under the /srv dirctory you would execute the following command:

semanage fcontext -a -e /var/lib/php /srv/php
restorecon -R -v /srv/php

httpd policy stores data with multiple different file context types under the /var/www directory. If you would like to store the data in a different directory you can use the semanage command to create an equivalence mapping. If you wanted to store this data under the /srv dirctory you would execute the following command:

semanage fcontext -a -e /var/www /srv/www
restorecon -R -v /srv/www

STANDARD FILE CONTEXT

SELinux defines the file context types for the httpd, 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 httpd_var_run_t '/srv/myhttpd_content(/.*)?'
restorecon -R -v /srv/myhttpd_content

Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files.

The following file types are defined for httpd:

httpd_cache_t

- Set files with the httpd_cache_t type, if you want to store the files under the /var/cache directory.

Paths:
/var/cache/rt(3|4)(/.*)?, /var/cache/ssl.*.sem, /var/cache/mod_.*, /var/cache/php-.*, /var/cache/httpd(/.*)?, /var/cache/mason(/.*)?, /var/cache/mod_ssl(/.*)?, /var/cache/lighttpd(/.*)?, /var/cache/mediawiki(/.*)?, /var/cache/mod_proxy(/.*)?, /var/cache/mod_gnutls(/.*)?, /var/cache/php-mmcache(/.*)?, /var/cache/php-eaccelerator(/.*)?

httpd_config_t

- Set files with the httpd_config_t type, if you want to treat the files as httpd configuration data, usually stored under the /etc directory.

Paths:
/etc/httpd(/.*)?, /etc/nginx(/.*)?, /etc/apache(2)?(/.*)?, /etc/cherokee(/.*)?, /etc/lighttpd(/.*)?, /etc/apache-ssl(2)?(/.*)?, /var/lib/openshift/.httpd.d(/.*)?, /etc/opt/rh/rh-nginx18/nginx(/.*)?, /var/lib/stickshift/.httpd.d(/.*)?, /etc/vhosts, /etc/thttpd.conf

- Set files with the httpd_helper_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the httpd_helper_t domain.

httpd_initrc_exec_t

- Set files with the httpd_initrc_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the httpd_initrc_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 database. You will need to use restorecon to apply the labels.

Sharing Files

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_content_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_content_rw_t domain, you must set the appropriate boolean.

Allow httpd servers to read the /var/httpd 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/httpd(/.*)?"
restorecon -F -R -v /var/httpd

Allow httpd servers to read and write /var/httpd/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 httpd_anon_write boolean.

semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_rw_t "/var/httpd/incoming(/.*)?"
restorecon -F -R -v /var/httpd/incoming
setsebool -P httpd_anon_write 1

If you want to allow Apache to modify public files used for public file transfer services. Directories/Files must be labeled public_content_rw_t., you must turn on the httpd_anon_write boolean.

setsebool -P httpd_anon_write 1

Commands

semanage fcontext can also be used to manipulate default file context mappings.

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.
