NAMEgitosis_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the gitosis processes
SELinux Linux secures gitosis (Tools for managing and hosting git repositories) processes via flexible mandatory access control.
BOOLEANSSELinux policy is customizable based on least access required. gitosis policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run gitosis with the tightest access possible.
If you want to allow cgit to access gitosis files, you must turn on the git_cgit_read_gitosis_content boolean.
setsebool -P git_cgit_read_gitosis_content 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 gitosis policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their gitosis processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following file types are defined for gitosis:
- Set files with the gitosis_exec_t type, if you want to transition an executable to the gitosis_t domain.
- Set files with the gitosis_var_lib_t type, if you want to store the gitosis files under the /var/lib directory.
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.
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 gitosis policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their gitosis processes in as secure a method as possible.
The following process types are defined for gitosis:
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 boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans
system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
