mod selinux on rhel7

mod selinux on rhel7

I have now compiled and testing mod_selinux on el7. I'm trying to get this into EPEL now.

To test this once you have done a build.

#!/usr/bin/env python
import cgi
import cgitb; cgitb.enable()  # for troubleshooting
import selinux

print "Content-type: text/html"
print """
<head><title>Selinux CGI context</title></head>
  <p>Current context is %s</p>
""" % cgi.escape(str(selinux.getcon()))

Put this cgi into:


Now, install and configure httpd.


<VirtualHost *:80>
 DocumentRoot          /var/www/html

    <LocationMatch /cgi-bin/selinux-c2.cgi>
    selinuxDomainVal    *:s0:c2
    <LocationMatch /cgi-bin/selinux-c3.cgi>
    selinuxDomainVal    *:s0:c3


Now when you load each page you should see different contexts such as: "Current context is [0, 'system_u:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t:s0:c3']"

You can easily extend these location-match based contexts onto django project urls etc. Consider you have a file upload. You place that into c1, and then have all other processes in c2. If the url needs to look at the file, then you place that in c1 also.

Alternately, you can use this for virtualhost isolation, or even if you feel game, write new policies to allow more complex rules within your application.
