11.3. Booleans

SELinux is based on the least level of access required for a service to run. Services can be run in a variety of ways; therefore, you need to specify how you run your services. Use the following Booleans to set up SELinux:
allow_rsync_anon_write
Having this Boolean enabled allows rsync in the rsync_t domain to manage files, links and directories that have a type of public_content_rw_t. Often these are public files used for public file transfer services. Files and directories must be labeled public_content_rw_t.
rsync_client
Having this Boolean enabled allows rsync to initiate connections to ports defined as rsync_port_t, as well as allowing rsync to manage files, links and directories that have a type of rsync_data_t. Note that the rsync daemon must be in the rsync_t domain in order for SELinux to enact its control over rsync. The configuration example in this chapter demonstrates rsync running in the rsync_t domain.
rsync_export_all_ro
Having this Boolean enabled allows rsync in the rsync_t domain to export NFS and CIFS volumes with read-only access to clients.

Note

Due to the continuous development of the SELinux policy, the list above might not contain all Booleans related to the service at all times. To list them, run the following command as root:
~]# semanage boolean -l | grep service_name
