[libvirt-users] libvirtd and polkit: internal error: No Unix Process ID



Hi all,

I want to use libvirtd and polkit to create simple access restricitions for
incoming TLS connections.

libvirtd.conf:
> ...
> auth_tls = "sasl"
> access_drivers = [ "polkit" ]
> ...
>
tls_no_verify_certificate = 1

SASL and TLS in combination is already working without any faults. After
activating access_drivers, the setup breaks, cause the access is denied.

without polkit:
> [root inexor-test ~]# virsh --connect qemu+tls://vm0.host.b3be.de/system
> Please enter your authentication name: inexor vm0
> Please enter your password: 
> Welcome to virsh, the virtualization interactive terminal.
> ...

with polkit:
> [root inexor-test ~]# virsh --connect qemu+tls://vm0.host.b3be.de/system
> Please enter your authentication name: inexor vm0
> Please enter your password: 
> error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
> error: access denied

I deactivated any self-written polkit-rules and had been able to track down the
problem to communication with libvirtd and polkit (via pkttyagent).

For every incoming connection, libvirtd logs this:

> Jan 04 15:12:41 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: Unable to verify TLS peer: No certificate
was found.
> Jan 04 15:12:41 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: Certificate check failed Unable to verify
TLS peer: No certificate was found.
> Jan 04 15:12:45 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: internal error: No UNIX process ID
available
> Jan 04 15:12:45 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: access denied
> Jan 04 15:12:45 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: access denied
> Jan 04 15:12:45 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: Cannot recv data: Input/output error
> Jan 04 15:12:47 vm0 libvirtd[17075]: Unable to verify TLS peer: No certificate
was found.

Additionally, what I found: After every libvirtd-restart the unit polkit.service
loggs an Registered and directly after an Unregsitered Auth Agent.

> Jan 04 15:28:29 vm0 polkitd[2670]: Registered Authentication Agent for unix-
process:17225:3691193 (system bus name :1.97 [/usr/bin/pkttyagent --notify-fd 4
--fallback], object path /org/freedesktop/PolicyKit1/AuthenticationAgent, locale
C)
> Jan 04 15:28:30 vm0 polkitd[2670]: Unregistered Authentication Agent for unix-
process:17225:3691193 (system bus name :1.97, object path
/org/freedesktop/PolicyKit1/AuthenticationAgent, locale C) (disconnected from
bus)
(Correct! In the first second it registers and shortly it unregisteres again)

Could someone please provide me a hint how to make libvirtd and polkit talk to
each other?

Sincerely,
Bene

polkit-version: 0.113
