Project Description

Build SELinux domains for hpccsystems-platform services.  It will also be necessary to implement appropriate SELinux file attributes to both the files included with our package, and files created by our hpccsystems-platform services so that data can only be accessed by the appropriate components.

Completion of this project involves:

Provide details about the following:

  • Checked in code
  • Documentation
  • Test code
  • Demonstrate access restriction on data files using the implemented SELinux policies.

Expected feature list: 

  • Service profiles for all hpccsystems-platform services
  • Port profiles for standard/common hpccsystems-platform ports
  • File object attributes for platform installed files
  • File object attributes for service created files
  • Documentation on the development process, and policies created.

By the midterm review we would expect you to have:

  • service profiles for hpccsystems-platform services
  • port profiles for hpccsystems-platform services
  • Outline for how to implement file object attributes with the hpcc user in mind
