Subject: [RFC] ssh: remove unconfined_shell_domtrans(sshd_t)
Date: Sat, 31 Aug 2019 19:27:13 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This call allows sshd_t associated processes with run shell with an automatic domain transition to unconfined_t.
I was unable to make sense of the commit that added this:

Debian's motd dynamic pam module makes sshd run a shell, we want this shell to run with sshd_t instead of unconfined_t

This patch will make the ssh_sysadm_login boolean apply to unconfined ssh logins.
To me this makes sense, as unconfined_t is targeted equivalent to the strict sysadm_t.
The boolean could however be renamed to the more generic ssh_priv_login name.
