Miscellaneous

SELinux

If you have SELinux enabled on the client computer, create the SELinux policy module as a root user before performing a backup. The SELinux Development package must be installed on the client.

To create an SELinux policy module, perform the following steps as user "root":

  1. Create the following files in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory:

    File Name

    Content of the File

    <directory>/<file_name>.te

    where:

    <directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

    <file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

    For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.te

     

    The content of the file should be as follows:

    policy_module(<name>,<version>)

    ##############################

    where:

    <name> is the name of the policy module. You can give any unique name to the policy module, such as a process or application name.

    <version> is the version of the policy module. It can be any number, such as 1.0.0.

    For Example: While creating a policy module for the backup_IDA application, you can use the following content.

    policy_module(backup_IDA,1.0.0)

    <directory>/<file_name>.fc

    where:

    <directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

    <file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

    For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.fc

     

    The content of the file should be as follows:

    Note that the following list of files is not exhaustive. If the process fails to launch, check /var/log/messages. Also, if required, add it to the following list of files.

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCTreeWrapper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCVMAGuiImplgso -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2locale.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2osse.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDb2Sbt.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2trcapi.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDrDatabase.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libIndexing.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libSnooper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

     

  2. Create the policy file from command line. Use the following command. Ensure that you give the following commands in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory.

    [root]# make backup_IDA.pp

    Compiling targeted backup_IDA module

    /usr/bin/checkmodule: loading policy configuration from tmp/backup_IDA.tmp

    /usr/bin/checkmodule: policy configuration loaded

    /usr/bin/checkmodule: writing binary representation (version 6) to tmp/backup_IDA.mod

    Creating targeted backup_IDA.pp policy package

    rm tmp/backup_IDA.mod tmp/backup_IDA.mod.fc

    [root]# semodule -i backup_IDA.pp

    [root]#

  3. Execute the policy module. Use the following command:

[root]# restorecon -R /opt/<software installation directory>

SELinux is now configured to work with this application.
