       nfs_selinux - Security Enhanced Linux Policy for NFS


       Security  Enhanced  Linux secures the NFS server via flexible mandatory
       access control.


       SELinux policy is customizable based  on  the  least  level  of  access
       required. SELinux can be configured to not allow NFS to share files. If
       you want to share NFS partitions, and only allow  read-only  access  to
       those NFS partitions, turn the nfs_export_all_ro boolean on:

       setsebool -P nfs_export_all_ro 1

       If   you   want   to   share   files   read/write   you  must  set  the
       nfs_export_all_rw boolean.

       setsebool -P nfs_export_all_rw 1

       These  booleans  are  not  required when files to be shared are labeled
       with the public_content_t or public_content_rw_t types. NFS  can  share
       files  labeled  with  the public_content_t or public_content_rw_t types
       even if the nfs_export_all_ro and nfs_export_all_rw booleans are off.

       If you want to use a remote NFS server for the home directories on this
       machine, you must set the use_nfs_home_dirs boolean:

       setsebool -P use_nfs_home_dirs 1

       system-config-selinux  is  a  GUI  tool  available to customize SELinux
       policy settings.
