Default userdom_unpriv_user_template use errors and creating new roles

Using FC12, fully updated. I have two basic, but
possibly related questions. The first is regarding a change to the
targeted policy that resulted in an install error for our Trusted RUBIX
policy when using the userdom_unpriv_user_template interface, as off the last targeted policy update. The
second are denials I now receive after changing our policy to use a
different interface.



First issue:



Our policy had been declaring a custom role (rubix_dbadm_r in this
case) using the following:

userdom_unpriv_user_template(rubix_dbadm)

corecmd_exec_shell(rubix_dbadm_t)



Originally, this worked for its intended purposes with no selinux
denials. As of installing policy update:

Name****** : selinux-policy-targeted

Arch****** : noarch

Version*** : 3.6.32

Release*** : 103.fc12



When we build our policy we received the following errors:

rubix-dev.te:175: Warning: xserver_user_client() has been deprecated,
please use xserver_user_x_domain_template instead.

Installing rubix-dev-targeted policy

libsepol.print_missing_requirements: rubix-dev's global requirements
were not met: type/attribute xdrawable_type (No such file or directory).

libsemanage.semanage_link_sandbox: Link packages failed (No such file
or directory).

semodule:* Failed!



I had been receiving the depreciated warning a while (ignoring at my
own peril), the link error was new to this targeted policy version. I
also received errors while installing selinux-policy-targeted rpm
itself, stating a different requirement not being met in the then
installed rubix-dev policy. I do not recall the exact error message,
but remember it was an X related type that was missing.



Noting the X connection between the depreciated function and the link
error, I traced the reference to the depreciated 'xserver_user_client'
interface to 'userdom_unpriv_user_template'. I did
not call 'xserver_user_client' directly. I replaced the call to
'userdom_unpriv_user_template' with a call
to 'userdom_restricted_user_template' and my then
policy installed properly.



But using the 'userdom_restricted_user_template ' interface,
now
I notice some selinux denials during a call to newrole, which is my
second question below. I am not sure that the change to the new
interface is the cause of the denials, I am just now noticing them.



Should the 'userdom_unpriv_user_template' interface
either be fixed or removed from the userdom *.if file?



Second issue:



The rubix_dbadm_r role is now created with:

userdom_restricted_user_template(rubix_dbadm)

corecmd_exec_shell(rubix_dbadm_t)



When I perform a newrole, I receive denials as follows (note, I am in
permissive mode so the newrole succeeds):



$ id -Z

rxdev_u:staff_r:staff_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023

$ ls -Z `tty`

crw--w----. warner tty rxdev_ubject_r:user_devpts_t:s0 /dev/pts/4

$ newrole -r rubix_dbadm_r

Password:

$



Note: I am a bit surprised that the tty type is user_devpts_t and not staff_devpts_t,
though
I am very unfamiliar with this.

Are these denials related to how I create the rubix_dbadm_r role? Is
there a proper way to create a role suitable for* auser to transition
into and as a potential default logon user role?



I fully admit my choice of creating a role was through observation of
other policy code and trail and error. It would be nice to have a
definitive word on it.

These look like a bug in policy.* Something in the pam stack is trying
to communicate with dbus and newrole is not allowed this access. What
do the AVC messages look like.

Do you want rubix_dbadm_t to be a full login user
or just the domain to run with when you are root?

If you want to allow full use of a desktop but only allow certain privs
as root, I would use staff_t and then transition through sudo to
rubix_dbadm_t.** Setup an SELinux user that logs in as staff_t and has
the staff_r, rubix_dbadm_r and system_r (If he needs to restart
services).

I believe there are other unmet requirements as well. Also, this will

Do you want rubix_dbadm_t to be a full login user
or just the domain to run with when you are root?


Trusted RUBIX implements SELinux within our DBMS objects and
administrative programs. Similar to SEPostgreSQL



We want it to be a full login user, if possible. Bare minimum is to be
able to open a shell as the rubix_dbadm_t, typically transitioning from
staff_r. Actually, the role has more associated with it than just
rubix_dbadm_t. This role is configured to run administrative programs
on behalf of our DBMS. It is also configured to run DBMS sessions with
special privilege.



I am not sure of the reference to root. But, root is not a factor in
this. In becoming/using our rubix_dbadm_r role (or any of our DBMS
roles, the user should not become nor need to transition through the
linux root user.

If you want to allow full use of a desktop but only allow
certain privs
as root, I would use staff_t and then transition through sudo to
rubix_dbadm_t.** Setup an SELinux user that logs in as staff_t and has
the staff_r, rubix_dbadm_r and system_r (If he needs to restart
services).


It is more than just restart services. This is a fundamental role
within the Trusted RUBIX RBAC. For instance, we have DBMS Security
Administrator, Audit Administrator, Operator, and User roles. All with
various abilities to run Trusted RUBIX administrative programs and all
with differing privilege with regards to a DBMS session.



Thanks for your help,



Andy

Do you want rubix_dbadm_t to be a full login user

Trusted RUBIX implements SELinux within our DBMS objects and
administrative programs. Similar to SEPostgreSQL



We want it to be a full login user, if possible. Bare minimum is to be
able to open a shell as the rubix_dbadm_t, typically transitioning from

rubix_dbadm_t. This role is configured to run administrative programs
on behalf of our DBMS. It is also configured to run DBMS sessions with
special privilege.



I am not sure of the reference to root. But, root is not a factor in
this. In becoming/using our rubix_dbadm_r role (or any of our DBMS
roles, the user should not become nor need to transition through the
linux root user.

If you want to allow full use of a desktop but only allow
certain privs
as root, I would use staff_t and then transition through sudo to
rubix_dbadm_t.** Setup an SELinux user that logs in as staff_t and has
the staff_r, rubix_dbadm_r and system_r (If he needs to restart
services).


It is more than just restart services. This is a fundamental role
within the Trusted RUBIX RBAC. For instance, we have DBMS Security
Administrator, Audit Administrator, Operator, and User roles. All with
various abilities to run Trusted RUBIX administrative programs and all
with differing privilege with regards to a DBMS session.



Thanks for your help,



Andy


That is a bug, newrole is trying to communicate with the finger print
reader through pam.

policy when using the userdom_unpriv_user_template interface, as off the last targeted policy update. The
second are denials I now receive after changing our policy to use a
different interface.



First issue:



Our policy had been declaring a custom role (rubix_dbadm_r in this
case) using the following:

userdom_unpriv_user_template(rubix_dbadm)

corecmd_exec_shell(rubix_dbadm_t)



Originally, this worked for its intended purposes with no selinux
denials. As of installing policy update:

Name****** : selinux-policy-targeted

Arch****** : noarch

Version*** : 3.6.32

Release*** : 103.fc12



When we build our policy we received the following errors:

rubix-dev.te:175: Warning: xserver_user_client() has been deprecated,
please use xserver_user_x_domain_template instead.

Installing rubix-dev-targeted policy

libsepol.print_missing_requirements: rubix-dev's global requirements
were not met: type/attribute xdrawable_type (No such file or directory).

libsemanage.semanage_link_sandbox: Link packages failed (No such file
or directory).

semodule:* Failed!




Looks like a bug in the interface,* You can probably hand edit it, to
remove the requirement for xdrawable_type.


I believe there are other unmet requirements as well. Also, this will
be an issue for the users of Trusted RUBIX. I would rather not request
that they hand edit portions of the non-RUBIX policy. So, if it works
properly, I would rather just use userdom_restricted_user_template
(or
should it be userdom_base_user_template?).


I had
been receiving the depreciated warning a while (ignoring at my
own peril), the link error was new to this targeted policy version. I
also received errors while installing selinux-policy-targeted rpm
itself, stating a different requirement not being met in the then
installed rubix-dev policy. I do not recall the exact error message,
but remember it was an X related type that was missing.



Noting the X connection between the depreciated function and the link
error, I traced the reference to the depreciated 'xserver_user_client'
interface to 'userdom_unpriv_user_template'. I did
not call 'xserver_user_client' directly. I replaced the call to
'userdom_unpriv_user_template' with a call
to 'userdom_restricted_user_template' and my then
policy installed properly.



But using the 'userdom_restricted_user_template ' interface,
now
I
notice
some
selinux denials during a call to newrole, which is my
second question below. I am not sure that the change to the new
interface is the cause of the denials, I am just now noticing them.



Should the 'userdom_unpriv_user_template' interface
either be fixed or removed from the userdom *.if file?



Second issue:



The rubix_dbadm_r role is now created with:

userdom_restricted_user_template(rubix_dbadm)

corecmd_exec_shell(rubix_dbadm_t)



When I perform a newrole, I receive denials as follows (note, I am in
permissive mode so the newrole succeeds):



$ id -Z

rxdev_u:staff_r:staff_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023

$ ls -Z `tty`

crw--w----. warner tty rxdev_ubject_r:user_devpts_t:s0 /dev/pts/4

$ newrole -r rubix_dbadm_r

Password:

$



Note: I am a bit surprised that the tty type is user_devpts_t and not staff_devpts_t,
though
I
am
very
unfamiliar with this.

Sorry for being dense, are you suggesting I open a bugzilla regarding
the behavior of newrole or the userdom_unpriv_user_template
interface, or both? I assumed that since no one else complained about
the interface, it must not be used much as I caught an error just
updating the targeted policy.



Just curious, is there something regarding what I am doing now that
jumps out that would have a problem with F13? WE, and our customers,
are very interested in the RHEL6 when it comes out. We have been
basically using the same basic policy since F9. This is the largest
issue we have had as of yet. I'd love to help with patching the
interface issue, but I a afraid I would have a very large learning
curve getting into the policy.



I am
not
sure of the reference to root. But, root is not a factor in
this. In becoming/using our rubix_dbadm_r role (or any of our DBMS

rubix-dev.te:175: Warning: xserver_user_client() has been deprecated,
please use xserver_user_x_domain_template instead.

Installing rubix-dev-targeted policy

libsepol.print_missing_requirements: rubix-dev's global requirements
were not met: type/attribute xdrawable_type (No such file or directory).

libsemanage.semanage_link_sandbox: Link packages failed (No such file
or directory).

semodule:* Failed!




Looks like a bug in the interface,* You can probably hand edit it, to
remove the requirement for xdrawable_type.


I believe there are other unmet requirements as well. Also, this will
be an issue for the users of Trusted RUBIX. I would rather not request
that they hand edit portions of the non-RUBIX policy. So, if it works
properly, I would rather just use userdom_restricted_user_template
(or
should
it
be userdom_base_user_template?).


I
had
been receiving the depreciated warning a while (ignoring at my
own peril), the link error was new to this targeted policy version. I
also received errors while installing selinux-policy-targeted rpm
itself, stating a different requirement not being met in the then
installed rubix-dev policy. I do not recall the exact error message,
but remember it was an X related type that was missing.



Noting the X connection between the depreciated function and the link
error, I traced the reference to the depreciated 'xserver_user_client'
interface to 'userdom_unpriv_user_template'. I did
not call 'xserver_user_client' directly. I replaced the call to
'userdom_unpriv_user_template' with a call
to 'userdom_restricted_user_template' and my then
policy installed properly.



But using the 'userdom_restricted_user_template ' interface,
now
I
notice
some
selinux
denials
during a call to newrole, which is my
second question below. I am not sure that the change to the new
interface is the cause of the denials, I am just now noticing them.



Should the 'userdom_unpriv_user_template' interface
either be fixed or removed from the userdom *.if file?



Second issue:



The rubix_dbadm_r role is now created with:

userdom_restricted_user_template(rubix_dbadm)

corecmd_exec_shell(rubix_dbadm_t)



When I perform a newrole, I receive denials as follows (note, I am in
permissive mode so the newrole succeeds):



$ id -Z

rxdev_u:staff_r:staff_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023

$ ls -Z `tty`

crw--w----. warner tty rxdev_ubject_r:user_devpts_t:s0 /dev/pts/4

$ newrole -r rubix_dbadm_r

Password:

$



Note: I am a bit surprised that the tty type is user_devpts_t and not staff_devpts_t,
though
I
am
very
unfamiliar
with
this.

These look like a bug in policy.* Something in the pam stack is trying
to communicate with dbus and newrole is not allowed this access. What
do the AVC messages look like.


Here are the AVC's I get which seem related to the newrole usage:

Are these denials related to how I create the rubix_dbadm_r role? Is
there a proper way to create a role suitable for* auser to transition
into and as a potential default logon user role?



I fully admit my choice of creating a role was through observation of
other policy code and trail and error. It would be nice to have a
definitive word on it.



Thanks,



Andy

Do you want rubix_dbadm_t to be a full login user
or just the domain to run with when you are root?


Trusted RUBIX implements SELinux within our DBMS objects and
administrative programs. Similar to SEPostgreSQL



We want it to be a full login user, if possible. Bare minimum is to be
able to open a shell as the rubix_dbadm_t, typically transitioning from
staff_r. Actually, the role has more associated with it than just
rubix_dbadm_t. This role is configured to run administrative programs
on behalf of our DBMS. It is also configured to run DBMS sessions with
special privilege.




I am suggesting you open a bugzilla on this but hand edited to be able
to continue your work.* Patches to fix the interface problem would be
helpful.* If your goal is to get this to work on RHEL6 you might want
to start working with the F13 policy.




Sorry for being dense, are you suggesting I open a bugzilla regarding
the behavior of newrole or the userdom_unpriv_user_template
interface,
or both? I assumed that since no one else complained about
the interface, it must not be used much as I caught an error just
updating the targeted policy.



Just curious, is there something regarding what I am doing now that
jumps out that would have a problem with F13? WE, and our customers,
are very interested in the RHEL6 when it comes out. We have been
basically using the same basic policy since F9. This is the largest
issue we have had as of yet. I'd love to help with patching the
interface issue, but I a afraid I would have a very large learning
curve getting into the policy.


Yes open two different bugzillas.



I am
not
sure of the reference to root. But, root is not a factor in
this. In becoming/using our rubix_dbadm_r role (or any of our DBMS
roles, the user should not become nor need to transition through the
linux root user.

If you want to allow full use of a desktop but only allow
certain privs
as root, I would use staff_t and then transition through sudo to
rubix_dbadm_t.** Setup an SELinux user that logs in as staff_t and has
the staff_r, rubix_dbadm_r and system_r (If he needs to restart
services).


It is more than just restart services. This is a fundamental role
within the Trusted RUBIX RBAC. For instance, we have DBMS Security
Administrator, Audit Administrator, Operator, and User roles. All with
various abilities to run Trusted RUBIX administrative programs and all
with differing privilege with regards to a DBMS session.




Ok sounds good.* I think the userdom_restricted_user_template
is
what
you want for your other roles.* Since this is the least
privileged user.


Thanks
for
your help,



Andy
