Is it mandatory to add nosuid to any mounted filesystems?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • RHEL 7.1 mount command shows:
 selinuxfs  on /sys/fs/selinux type selinuxfs (rw,relatime)
 mqueue on /dev/mqueue type mqueue (rw,relatime,seclabel)
 hugetlbfs  on /dev/hugepages type hugetlbfs (rw,relatime,seclabel)
  • As per Corporate policy, need to add nosuid to any mounted filesystems. In RHEL 7.1, these new ones are added.
    We need confirmation from RedHat that no changes such as nosuid can or should be added to them.
