Confined Users Test Day

What to Test?

Today's Fedora Test Day will focus on Confined SELinux Users. We want to write a policy confining a user by assigning the user an SELinux role where the policy controls what the user can do/access on the system. Current confined SELinux user types with their purpose of use are:

  • guest_u – Terminal login, nosetuid, nonetwork, noxwindows, noexec in home directory.
  • xguest_u – X Windows login and terminal login, nosetuid, nonetwork, noexec in home directory.
  • user_u – X Windows login and terminal login, nosetuid, noexec in home directory.
  • staff_u – X Windows login and terminal login, nosetuid except sudo.

The purpose of test day is to test these SELinux users on your desktop and in specific cases. So for example like xguest_u, user_u or staff_u try to login to X Windows, try to start Firefox, IM, try to run terminal, ping, sudo and so on.

What's Needed to Be Able to Test

You will need following packages on your system:

  • selinux-policy-targeted
  • policycoreutils-gui
  • setroubleshoot

Set up SELinux users ...

How to Test

The main goal is to test chosen users and to do things which are usual for you with these SELinux users. For example if you log as xguest_u and try to run ping or sudo in your favourite terminal you won't be able to run it. But if you won't be able to run Firefox then probably this is a bug.

Test Cases

guest_u

Note.png
User capabilities
Terminal login, nosetuid, nonetwork, noxwindows, noexec in home directory

Set up a server only machine, with Apache service. Configure Apache in such a way that user home directories are accessible. Change default login to guest_u. Create a directory named /secrets, and install MySQL. Make sure the database is world readable.

Add an user account. Ssh to the box and try the following:

  • Good Test - Try to do expected behaviour
    • Edit files in home directory.
    • scp files to home directory and public_html directory.
    • Copy files to public_html directory.
    • Verify that the content is viewable via Apache.
  • Bad Test - Try to do evil
    • Try to ping off the box.
    • Try any network protocol, try to get off the box (ssh, sendmail, rsh, telnet etc.)

    • Try to read a file in the /secrets directory.
    • Try to read the MySQL database.
