Subject: [PATCH] libsepol: error in CIL if a permission cannot be resolved
Date: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 16:18:27 -0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In the following example, "relabeltoo" is not a valid permission
in the loaded policy nor in the new module. Before, CIL would not
complain about the invalid permission and proceed to install the module:

	$ cat test.cil

	(mlsconstrain (db_procedure (create relabeltoo)) (eq l2 h2))

With this patch, an error is now prompted to a user:

	$ sudo semodule -i foo.cil

	Failed to resolve permission relabeltoo
	Failed to resolve mlsconstrain statement at /etc/selinux/mls/tmp/modules/400/test/cil:1
	semodule:  Failed!
