So you would additionally add:


That would allow myapp_t to also tcp sendrecv tun0 network interface.
and it would allow myapp_t to bind tcp sockets to mysqld ports.

But i think i see where this is going:

Because now myapp_t can also connect to mysqld ports via the tun0
network interface. Something you probably wanted to prevent.

Additionally now myapp_t can also listen on the lo network interface.
Also something you probably wanted to prevent.

I am not sure how to best deal with this problem.

Good question that i cannot answer.

get refpolicy and build it. if will generate a corenetwork.if file.
