problems with cvs-grsec2 and cvs-gradm2

Postby Oscon » Tue Jul 27, 2004 4:08 am

Hello!

I have few problems with "new" cvs-grsec2(2.4 version) and cvs-gradm2.

It seems...Debian woody 3.0r2+ linux-2.4.26 + cvs grsecurity2 (07.09) + cvs gradm2 (07.09) not work!

gradm -E = Segmentation Fault

The earlier cvs-grsec2 (06.25,06.29) and gradm2 (06.25,06.29) was "good".

Can you mail your config to spender@grsecurity.net so I can debug it?

Postby rocky » Tue Jul 27, 2004 8:24 pm

i'm getting the same problem. using cvs gradm2 and http://grsecurity.net/~spender/grsecuri ... .6.7.patch

this is what kern.log is spitting out.

You can't be. That log isn't a log from a 2.0.1 kernel. If it were, it would have the role name, role type, and subject name with each log.

I think the segfault is being issued before the ACLs are enabled.

Based on my reading of the security_alert_good macro in the 2.0.1 patch, the role information is only written if the ACLs have been enabled. (I'm assuming that gr_acl_is_enabled() returns non-zero when the ACLs are enabled and zero when they're not.)

Do you think an strace might help? It might be a bit too much information but it might give us the information we need.

You're right, sorry I didn't recognize that they weren't RBAC-related logs.

The problem has been fixed in current CVS of gradm2.
