Description Daniel 2016-08-01 10:22:38 UTC
Description of problem:
Geoclue location services can't talk to Android helper app (GeoclueShare) for improved location services using phone's GPS, socket connection between Geoclue no device and the phone is denied by SELinux policy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
geoclue 0.12.99

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install gnome-maps
2. install and run on an Android device on same Wi-fi network
3. Open GNOME Maps and ignore that it's currently broken
4. Click the "Go to current location" button

Expected results:
The GeoclueShare app on Android should list one connected device.

Actual results:

    type=AVC msg=audit(1470046190.967:856): avc:  denied  { name_connect }
    for  pid=7857 comm="geoclue" dest=10110
    tcontext=system_u:object_r:unreserved_port_t:s0 tclass=tcp_socket
    Hash: geoclue,geoclue_t,unreserved_port_t,tcp_socket,name_connect

semanage port -a -t http_port_t -p tcp 10110

Affects any program that uses Geoclue. GNOME Maps is just easy to test.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2017-07-25 22:11:01 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '24'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

type=AVC msg=audit(1516309779.425:5202): avc:  denied  { name_connect } for  pid=27477 comm="geoclue" dest=38103 scontext=system_u:system_r:geoclue_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:ephemeral_port_t:s0 tclass=tcp_socket permissive=1
allow geoclue_t ephemeral_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

Also affects GeoClue’s ability to source other nmea network location sources such as gps-share and gpsd.

Comment 4 Daniel 2018-01-19 11:14:44 UTC
I’m thinking there should be a boolean for `geoclue_allow_nmea_network` that allows TCP/UDP connections to port 10110. Port 10110 is registered with IANA for use with NMEA-0183 network-shared location services.
