Scientific Linux Security Update : selinux-policy on SL6.x i386/x86_64 (20120213)

Description

The selinux-policy packages contain the rules that govern how confined processes run on the system. This update fixes the following bug : - An incorrect SELinux policy prevented the qpidd service from starting. These selinux-policy packages contain updated SELinux rules, which allow the qpidd service to be started correctly. - With SELinux in enforcing mode, the ssh-keygen utility was prevented from access to various applications and thus could not be used to generate SSH keys for these programs. With this update, the 'ssh_keygen_t' SELinux domain type has been implemented as unconfined, which ensures the ssh-keygen utility to work correctly. All users of selinux-policy are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
