SubjectRe: kdbus: add code to gather metadata
Hi Andy,

Sorry for the late response.

Alright. The code now translates the items into each receiver's
namespaces individually, so we can also take possible chroot()
environments into account to do path translations.

Ok, done now. As mentioned in the highpid thread, we can easily add
another item once we have a better source of information.

Yes, we currently have no way of translating caps from one user
namespace to another, which means we cannot allow such an item to cross
user namespaces. We can add this functionality later once we have the
neccessary APIs.

Yes, agreed. We'll add translation to this item once cgroup namespaces
are in place. Until then, we'll expose the same information as other
parts of the Linux API already do.

The documentation was indeed bogus and is fixed now, along with man
other details. Thanks for spotting this!

kdbus just passes the seclabel along, if people want to use this for
security checks, then they need to call into libselinux, and should do
that by taking the enforcing mode into consideration. This is already
done in a lot of software that way.

SELinux and other MACs might want to do additional per-service security
checks. For example, a service manager might want to check the security
label of a service file against the security label of the client process
using the SELinux database before allow access. For this, we need to be
able to pass the client's security label race-free to libselinux so that
it can make its decision.

I've added the above to the documentation now.



Thanks for your review again - much appreciated!

Daniel
