Hi Matus,

The workaround for X seems reasonable (and honestly, I haven't seen any issues with X when running in this mode).

The systemd problems are problems with systemd and need to be fixed. I shouldn't have to disable security mechanisms because of systemd.

Note: I've also not seen any issues with DBus operations in with this enabled but maybe I wasn't trying the right operations. Granted, I can't manage other people's processes but that's...good, right?

Hello Trevor,

this feature would be nice to have and it can be definitely implemented in SSG. I would suggest to have a rule for it but I would not include it into any profile by default as this option currently causes issues with other components (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/security#hidepid). This way we can provide a possibility for users to include it into their profiles using tailoring if they really want to.

Regards,
Matus Marhefka

I've had this feature request open for a while at https://github.com/OpenSCAP/scap-security-guide/issues/1648 suggesting that hidepid=2 be added to /proc to help meet the AC-3 and AC-6 controls.

As we approach EL8 (I think), I'd like to have this discussion since this capability has shown to be valuable in a practical way on multi-user systems.

Thanks,

Trevor
