Discussion:
AF_UNIX sockets and targetSdkVersion >= 26
(too old to reply)

Hi all,

my app uses AF_UNIX sockets with 'abstract socket address' to send a file
descriptor to do shared memory with another app from native code.
I've just discovered that if I switch targetSdkVersion from 24 to 26 the
socket request incurs in a permission denied error.
The log looks like this: *... type=1400 audit(0.0:7733): avc: denied {
sendto } for path ...*
I believe that this is SElinux getting in the way. The app has the INTERNET
permission.
Is there any other permission that I have to add or is AF_UNIX sockets
blocked altogether?
The doc for the migration to Android P mentions that *"**Apps may continue
to share data using IPC mechanisms, including by passing FDs" *(
https://developer.android.com/preview/migration)
So it looks like my use case is still supported? Or maybe not from the NDK
side?
I'm not even testing on Android P yet, I'm setting targetSdkVersion to 26
and testing on an Android 8.1 device.

Thanks for any help.

Flavio.

Hi Flavio,

I encounter same problem when I try HardwareBuffer in android 8.0.

The solution I found is setenforce to permissive in your device.

The command is "su 0 setenforce 0"

And you can check the result via getenforce.

If it return the Permission, it's represent you set up OK.

The solution is turn off SELinux, so it may cause some secure problems.(I'm
not sure.)
