Layer: kernel

Module: selinux

Booleans Interfaces

Description:

Policy for kernel security interface, in particular, selinuxfs.

This module is required to be included in all policies.


Booleans:

secure_mode_policyload
Default value

false

Description

Boolean to determine whether the system permits loading policy, setting enforcing mode, and changing boolean values. Set this to true and you have to reboot to set it back.

Return

Interfaces:

selinux_compute_access_vector( domain )
Summary

Allows caller to compute an access vector.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_compute_create_context( domain )
Summary

Calculate the default type for object creation.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_compute_relabel_context( domain )
Summary

Calculate the context for relabeling objects.

Description

Calculate the context for relabeling objects. This is determined by using the type_change rules in the policy, and is generally used for determining the context for relabeling a terminal when a user logs in.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_compute_user_contexts( domain )
Summary

Allows caller to compute possible contexts for a user.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_dontaudit_get_fs_mount( domain )
Summary

Do not audit attempts to get the mountpoint of the selinuxfs filesystem.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain to not audit.

selinux_dontaudit_getattr_dir( domain )
Summary

Do not audit attempts to get the attributes of the selinuxfs directory.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain to not audit.

selinux_dontaudit_getattr_fs( domain )
Summary

Do not audit attempts to get the attributes of the selinuxfs filesystem

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain to not audit.

selinux_dontaudit_read_fs( domain )
Summary

Do not audit attempts to read generic selinuxfs entries

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain to not audit.

selinux_dontaudit_search_fs( domain )
Summary

Do not audit attempts to search selinuxfs.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain to not audit.

selinux_dontaudit_validate_context( domain )
Summary

Do not audit attempts to validate security contexts.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain to not audit.

selinux_get_enforce_mode( domain )
Summary

Allows the caller to get the mode of policy enforcement (enforcing or permissive mode).

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_get_fs_mount( domain )
Summary

Get the mountpoint of the selinuxfs filesystem.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_getattr_fs( domain )
Summary

Get the attributes of the selinuxfs filesystem

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_labeled_boolean( type , boolean )
Summary

Make the specified type used for labeling SELinux Booleans. This interface is only usable in the base module.

Description

Make the specified type used for labeling SELinux Booleans.

This makes use of genfscon statements, which are only available in the base module. Thus any module which calls this interface must be included in the base module.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
type

Type used for labeling a Boolean.

boolean

Name of the Boolean.

selinux_load_policy( domain )
Summary

Allow caller to load the policy into the kernel.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_mount_fs( domain )
Summary

Mount the selinuxfs filesystem.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_read_policy( domain )
Summary

Allow caller to read the policy from the kernel.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_remount_fs( domain )
Summary

Remount the selinuxfs filesystem. This allows some mount options to be changed.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_search_fs( domain )
Summary

Search selinuxfs.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_set_all_booleans( domain )
Summary

Allow caller to set the state of all Booleans to enable or disable conditional portions of the policy.

Description

Allow caller to set the state of all Booleans to enable or disable conditional portions of the policy.

Since this is a security event, this action is always audited.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_set_boolean( domain )
Summary

Allow caller to set the state of Booleans to enable or disable conditional portions of the policy. (Deprecated)

Description

Allow caller to set the state of Booleans to enable or disable conditional portions of the policy.

Since this is a security event, this action is always audited.

This interface has been deprecated. Please use selinux_set_generic_booleans() or selinux_set_all_booleans() instead.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_set_enforce_mode( domain )
Summary

Allow caller to set the mode of policy enforcement (enforcing or permissive mode).

Description

Allow caller to set the mode of policy enforcement (enforcing or permissive mode).

Since this is a security event, this action is always audited.

Parameters
Parameter:Description:
domain

Domain allowed access.

selinux_set_generic_booleans( domain )
Summary

Allow caller to set the state of generic Booleans to enable or disable conditional portions of the policy.

Description

Allow caller to set the state of generic Booleans to enable or disable conditional portions of the policy.

Since this is a security event, this action is always audited.

Parameters
