This is good question. The problem is that we are testing almost all
kernel subsystems, but are not experts in most of them. So frequently
we doing some non-sense. And that's where we need you help.
That's what we have for grep SECURITY .config:

CONFIG_EXT4_FS_SECURITY=y
# CONFIG_9P_FS_SECURITY is not set
# CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT is not set
CONFIG_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_WRITABLE_HOOKS=y
# CONFIG_SECURITYFS is not set
CONFIG_SECURITY_NETWORK=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_NETWORK_XFRM=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_PATH=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_BOOTPARAM=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_BOOTPARAM_VALUE=1
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_DISABLE=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_DEVELOP=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_AVC_STATS=y
CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_CHECKREQPROT_VALUE=0
# CONFIG_SECURITY_SMACK is not set
# CONFIG_SECURITY_TOMOYO is not set
# CONFIG_SECURITY_APPARMOR is not set
# CONFIG_SECURITY_LOADPIN is not set
# CONFIG_SECURITY_YAMA is not set
CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY_SELINUX=y
# CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DAC is not set
CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY="selinux"


I don't think we do anything else besides that.
To be fair I don't know what is SELinux policy nor how to load it. Can
you suggest a policy that would be good for testing of kernel in
general and SELinux in particular? Obviously, we don't want to
prohibit access to any major parts of kernel APIs entirely (because
then we won't test them). syzkaller also creates a local temp dir per
test process, and the process mostly accesses files there (except for
opening /dev/* and /proc/self/*). Is it possible to selectively
prohibit something there, so that we test both positive and negative
cases?

Thanks
