Got SELinux?

senetwork: new tool for examining SELinux networking policy.
A couple of years ago I added some python bindings for setools.  I hoped we would start to see new tools arise to analyze SELinux policy.  Maybe making SELinux easier to user and understand. 

Lately I have gone back to these tools and started playing with them to see what tools I could build. 

Last couple of days I have hacked together a little script called senetwork

The goal was to answering questions like:

What ports can a particular domain connect to?  Bind to?

# senetwork ftpd_t
ftpd_t tcp name_connect
    ephemeral_port_t: 32768-61000
    ldap_port_t: 389,636,3268
    dns_port_t: 53
    ocsp_port_t: 9080
    kerberos_port_t: 88,750,4444
ftpd_t tcp name_bind
    ephemeral_port_t: 32768-61000
    ftp_port_t: 21,990
    ftp_data_port_t: 20
    unreserved_port_t: 1024-32767,61001-65535
    port_t: all ports with out defined types

What type(s) are associated with a particular port number?

# senetwork 8080
8080: tcp unreserved_port_t 1024-32767
8080: udp unreserved_port_t 1024-32767
8080: tcp http_cache_port_t 8080

What ports are associated with a particular port_type?

# senetwork ftp_port_t
ftp_port_t: tcp: 21,990
ftp_port_t: udp: 990

Basically senetwork looks at the argument and figures out whether or not it is a number, port type or domain type
and then prints out the information.

I plan on packaging up these little scriptlets with setools-console.
