Line 9: Line 9:
For Stretch, we'd like more enforced profiles; specifically
(in decreasing order of priority):

 1. some of the Usual Suspects™ on the Desktop, e.g. isc-dhcp-client, Pidgin;
 2. some software that is particularly important in the context of Tails and other privacy-sensitive contexts: Tor;
 3. some low-hanging fruits from Ubuntu's [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/KnowledgeBase/AppArmorProfiles|Supported profiles in main]] list: apache2, libvirt, ntp...

The general workflow wrt. profiles is to find existing profiles, test them in the context of Debian sid, adapt them if needed, and either include them into apparmor-profiles-extra, or propose them to Debian package maintainers.

At some point, it would be great to share the profiles maintenance e.g. with Ubuntu.
For Buster, we'd like to enable AppArmor by default and improve the workflow for cross-distro collaborative profiles maintenance.


This page tracks progress of adding AppArmor profiles to Debian.

Goals

For Buster, we'd like to enable AppArmor by default and improve the workflow for cross-distro collaborative profiles maintenance.

In progress

Enabling AppArmor by default?

We are discussing and researching if/how AppArmor should be enabled by default on Debian:

  • XXX: link to discussion on debian-devel started during ?DebConf17

  • 702030 for a GRUB-based approach that has value even if AppArmor is not enabled default, and also could be a way to enable it by default at least on new installations

  • We could also enable AppArmor directly in the kernel with CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY="apparmor" and CONFIG_SECURITY_APPARMOR_BOOTPARAM_VALUE=1

Profiles being worked on

Pending maintainer upload

Pending upload of apparmor-profiles-extra
