10.8.3. Booleans

SELinux is based on the least level of access required for a service to run. Services can be run in a variety of ways; therefore, you must tell SELinux how you are running services. The following Boolean allows you to tell SELinux how you are running CVS:
allow_cvs_read_shadow
This Boolean allows the cvs daemon to access the /etc/shadow file for user authentication.
