Re: more fine grained access in /etc

Good point.
I probably can live with that.

Still I am not sure if I would like it to have full access to all files labelled etc_t . It would be nice to be able to single out only a few of them. Perhaps I should look at something other than the targeted policy.

Yes you can, but the more different file_context that you have in /etc,
the harder they will be to maintain.

Reading /etc/passwd is not as dangerous as being able to read
/etc/shadow.  So consider if this is really necessary.
