Re: FastCGI applications

Paul Howarth wrote:
I've just moved my personal moin wiki from mod_python to FastCGI for performance reasons (it's well worth it!). For people that don't know, FastCGI works by starting up one or more copies of a CGI application and then keeping them running, passing requests from server to application over a socket. This avoids the startup overhead of the CGI application for each request that is necessary with regular CGI.

I needed the policy module below to get it working. I'm not sure what exactly all of the "allows" are allowing, so advice would be welcome (sample AVCs included).

Regarding support for FastCGI in the standard policy, perhaps appropriate rules could be added under a boolean httpd_enable_fastcgi or even added to the features enabled with httpd_enable_cgi?

policy_module(apache, 0.1.0)

require {
        type httpd_sys_script_t;
        type httpd_log_t;
        type httpd_t;
        type devpts_t;
        type var_run_t;

Would dontaudit work?

# This is the FastCGI application listening for FastCGI requests on its socket allow httpd_sys_script_t httpd_t:unix_stream_socket { accept getattr ioctl listen };

Might be worth creating a new type for this httpd_fastcgi_script_t???

Should probably be dontaudit. term_dontaudit_use_generic_ptys(httpd_t) ioctl not handled by this right now, but it would probably have been prevented if you were not
running in permissive mode.

allow httpd_t var_run_t:dir setattr;

What dir is it doing this to? Should this directory be labeled httpd_var_run_t?
