Security-Enhanced Linux secures the ncftool processes via flexible mandatory access control.
The ncftool processes execute with the ncftool_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.
ps -eZ | grep ncftool_t
The ncftool_t SELinux type can be entered via the ncftool_exec_t file type.
The default entrypoint paths for the ncftool_t domain are the following:
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 ncftool policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ncftool processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for ncftool:
Note: semanage permissive -a ncftool_t can be used to make the process type ncftool_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still generated.
The SELinux process type ncftool_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.
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 ncftool policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their ncftool processes in as secure a method as possible.
STANDARD FILE CONTEXT
SELinux defines the file context types for the ncftool, if you wanted to store files with these types in a different paths, you need to execute the semanage command to specify alternate labeling and then use restorecon to put the labels on disk.
semanage fcontext -a -t ncftool_exec_t '/srv/ncftool/content(/.*)?'
restorecon -R -v /srv/myncftool_content
Note: SELinux often uses regular expressions to specify labels that match multiple files.
The following file types are defined for ncftool:
- Set files with the ncftool_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the ncftool_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.
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.
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
