NAME

       secmarks - Shorewall file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/shorewall/secmarks

DESCRIPTION

           Important
           Unlike rules in the shorewall-rules[1](5) file, evaluation of rules in this file will
           continue after a match. So the final secmark for each packet will be the one assigned
           by the LAST rule that matches.

       The secmarks file is used to associate an SELinux context with packets. It was added in
       Shorewall version 4.4.13.

       The columns in the file are as follows (where the column name is followed by a different
       name in parentheses, the different name is used in the alternate specification syntax).

       SECMARK - {SAVE|RESTORE|context|COMMENT comment}

           SAVE
               If an SELinux context is associated with the packet, the context is saved in the
               connection. Normally, the remaining columns should be left blank.

           RESTORE
               If an SELinux context is not currently associated with the packet, then the saved
               context (if any) is associated with the packet. Normally, the remaining columns
               should be left blank.

           context
               An SELinux context.

           COMMENT
               The remainder of the line is treated as a comment which is attached to subsequent
               rules until another COMMENT line is found or until the end of the file is reached.
               To stop adding comments to rules, use a line with only the word COMMENT.

       CHAIN:STATE (chain) - {P|I|F|O|T}[:{N|I|NI|E|ER}]
           This column determines the CHAIN where the SElinux context is to be applied:
               P - PREROUTING
               I - INPUT
               F - FORWARD
               O - OUTPUT
               T - POSTROUTING
           It may be optionally followed by a colon and an indication of the Netfilter connection
           state(s) at which the context is to be applied:
               :N - NEW connection
               :I - INVALID connection
               :NI - NEW or INVALID connection
               :E - ESTABLISHED connection
               :ER - ESTABLISHED or RELATED connection

       SOURCE - {-interface|[interface:]address-or-range[,address-or-range]...}[exclusion]
           May be:

            1. An interface name - matches traffic entering the firewall on the specified
               interface. May not be used in classify rules or in rules using the T in the CHAIN
               column.

            2. A comma-separated list of host or network IP addresses or MAC addresses.

            3. An interface name followed by a colon (":") followed by a comma-separated list of
               host or network IP addresses or MAC addresses.

           MAC addresses must be prefixed with "~" and use "-" as a separator.

           Example: ~00-A0-C9-15-39-78

           You may exclude certain hosts from the set already defined through use of an exclusion
           (see shorewall-exclusion[2](5)).

           Addresses may be specified using an ipset name preceded by '+'.

       DEST - {-|{interface|[interface:]address-or-range[,address-or-range]...}[exclusion]
           May be:

            1. An interface name. May not be used in the PREROUTING or INPUT chains. The
               interface name may be optionally followed by a colon (":") and an IP address list.

            2. A comma-separated list of host or network IP addresses. The list may include ip
               address ranges if your kernel and iptables include iprange support.

           You may exclude certain hosts from the set already defined through use of an exclusion
           (see shorewall-exclusion[2](5)).

           Addresses may be specified using an ipset name preceded by '+'.

       PROTO - {-|tcp:syn|ipp2p|ipp2p:udp|ipp2p:all|protocol-number|protocol-name|all}
           Protocol - ipp2p requires ipp2p match support in your kernel and iptables.

       PORT(S) (dport) - [-|port-name-number-or-range[,port-name-number-or-range]...]
           Optional destination Ports. A comma-separated list of Port names (from services(5)),
           port numbers or port ranges; if the protocol is icmp, this column is interpreted as
           the destination icmp-type(s). ICMP types may be specified as a numeric type, a
           numberic type and code separated by a slash (e.g., 3/4), or a typename. See
           http://www.shorewall.net/configuration_file_basics.htm#ICMP.

           If the protocol is ipp2p, this column is interpreted as an ipp2p option without the
           leading "--" (example bit for bit-torrent). If no PORT is given, ipp2p is assumed.

           This column is ignored if PROTOCOL = all but must be entered if any of the following
           field is supplied. In that case, it is suggested that this field contain "-"

       SOURCE PORT(S) (sport) - [-|port-name-number-or-range[,port-name-number-or-range]...]
           Optional source port(s). If omitted, any source port is acceptable. Specified as a
           comma-separated list of port names, port numbers or port ranges.

       USER - [!][user-name-or-number][:group-name-or-number]
           This optional column may only be non-empty if the SOURCE is the firewall itself.

           When this column is non-empty, the rule applies only if the program generating the
           output is running under the effective user and/or group specified (or is NOT running
           under that id if "!" is given).

           Examples:

           joe
               program must be run by joe

           :kids
               program must be run by a member of the 'kids' group

           !:kids
               program must not be run by a member of the 'kids' group

       MARK - [!]value[/mask][:C]
           Defines a test on the existing packet or connection mark. The rule will match only if
           the test returns true.

           If you don't want to define a test but need to specify anything in the following
           columns, place a "-" in this field.

           !
               Inverts the test (not equal)

           value
               Value of the packet or connection mark.

           mask
               A mask to be applied to the mark before testing.

           :C
               Designates a connection mark. If omitted, the packet mark's value is tested.

EXAMPLE

       Mark the first incoming packet of a connection on the loopback interface and destined for
       address 127.0.0.1 and tcp port 3306 with context system_u:object_r:mysqld_t:s0 and save
       that context in the conntrack table. On subsequent input packets in the connection, set
       the context from the conntrack table.

           #ZONE      INTERFACE      BROADCAST       OPTIONS

           #                                     STATE                                 PORT(S)    PORT(S)     GROUP
           system_u:object_r:mysqld_packet_t:s0  I:N        lo      127.0.0.1  tcp     3306
           SAVE                                  I:N        lo      127.0.0.1  tcp     3306
           RESTORE                               I:ER
