46.2.1. Using audit2allow to Build a Local Policy Module

The audit2allow utility now has the ability to build policy modules. Use the following command to build a policy module based on specific contents of the audit.log file:

ausearch -m AVC --comm setsebool | audit2allow -M mysemanage

The audit2allow utility has built a type enforcement file (mysemanage.te). It then executed the checkmodule command to compile a module file (mysemanage.mod). Lastly, it uses the semodule_package command to create a policy package (mysemanage.pp). The semodule_package command combines different policy files (usually just the module and potentially a file context file) into a policy package.
