You need to learn how to filter AVC denials and how to write a custom policy module to allow access to an specific action (you script, in this case).
I'd start by removing the module you inserted above, to start a-new:
# semodule -r mymodule.pp
Afterwards, run your script:
# date && ./my_script.sh
date invocation is useful to filter AVC denials based on timestamp.
Next, use the usual method to debug AVC denials, which makes use of the
# ausearch -m avc -ts $timestamp | audit2allow
Check the manpage for further information on the switches you can use, specifically the
With this information you'll know what is being denied based on the existing policy.
Now you should determine whether to grant this access or not. Let's suppose you want to grant access. You would need to create a custom policy module describing the rules defining the access you want to grant. This is more or less simple depending on the complexity of your script:
# ausearch -m avc -ts 10:40:00 | audit2allow -m my_script > my_script.te
This will produce a
type enforcement description.
You should proceed to review the code to ensure its correctness and compile the
type enforcement code into a
# checkmodule -M -m -o my_script.mod my_script.te
The module must be packaged into a
policy package for you to be able to load it and unload it at will:
# semodule_package -o my_script.pp -m my_script.mod
Now, you can load the policy using:
# semodule -i my_script.pp
Check it is correctly loaded:
# semodule -l | grep my_script
Then, try to trigger the denials again and see if there are more (different) alerts in the audit log regarding this same process.
Further editions of the
type enforcement code will need the
1.0) to be updated, or loading the package will fail. Once compiled and packaged, updating the
policy package is done issuing:
# semodule -u my_script.pp
There is a lot to learn when starting with SELinux. Some useful references:
