NAMEsmbd_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the smbd processes
SHARING FILESIf 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 smbd servers to read the /var/smbd 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/smbd(/.*)?"
restorecon -F -R -v /var/smbd
- Allow smbd servers to read and write /var/tmp/incoming by adding the public_content_rw_t type to the directory and by restoring the file type. This also requires the allow_smbd_anon_write boolean to be set.
semanage fcontext -a -t public_content_rw_t "/var/smbd/incoming(/.*)?"
restorecon -F -R -v /var/smbd/incoming
If you want to allow samba to modify public files used for public file transfer services. Files/Directories must be labeled public_content_rw_t., you must turn on the allow_smbd_anon_write boolean.
setsebool -P allow_smbd_anon_write 1
FILE CONTEXTSSELinux 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 lsP Policy governs the access confined processes have to these files. SELinux smbd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their smbd processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following file types are defined for smbd:
- Set files with the smbd_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the smbd_t domain.
- Set files with the smbd_keytab_t type, if you want to treat the files as kerberos keytab files.
- Set files with the smbd_tmp_t type, if you want to store smbd temporary files in the /tmp directories.
- Set files with the smbd_var_run_t type, if you want to store the smbd files under the /run directory.
/var/run/samba/smbd.pid, /var/run/smbd.pid, /var/run/samba/locking.tdb, /var/run/samba/share_info.tdb, /var/run/samba/connections.tdb, /var/run/samba/gencache.tdb, /var/run/samba/sessionid.tdb, /var/run/samba/brlock.tdb
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.
PORT TYPESSELinux 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 smbd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their smbd processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following port types are defined for smbd:
Default Defined Ports: tcp 8021
PROCESS TYPESSELinux defines process types (domains) for each process running on the system
You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to psP Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux smbd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their smbd processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for smbd:
smbcontrol_t, smbmount_t, smbd_t
Note: semanage permissive -a PROCESS_TYPE can be used to make a process type permissive. Permissive process types are not denied access by SELinux. AVC messages will still be generated.
COMMANDSsemanage 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
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
