In FreeIPA we have httpd_can_network_connect enabled. I just checked a F26
system and I have both booleans enabled.
# getsebool -a|egrep 'httpd_graceful_shutdown|httpd_can_network_connect '
httpd_can_network_connect --> on
httpd_graceful_shutdown --> on
So I'm a bit confused: disabling httpd_graceful_shutdown will have or
wouldn't have an effect on httpd_can_network_connect being enabled?
httpd_graceful_shutdown is subset of httpd_can_network_connect.
Turning on httpd_graceful_shutdown you allow httpd_t domain connecting
just to ports labeled as httpd_port_t.
Turning on httpd_can_network_connect you allow httpd_t domain connecting
to all ports from SELinux POV.
Right now, we ship selinux-policy with httpd_graceful_shutdown turned on
and httpd_can_network_connect turned off. But it's confusing for users
because they have httpd_can_connect turned off but httpd_t domain can
still connect co http_port_t ports becuase of httpd_gracefull_shudown.
I hope it's more clear now.
Do I need to do anything in FreeIPA setup?
No if httpd_can_network_connect is enabled during FreeIPA setup, you
don't need to change anything.
