NAME
       named_selinux  -  Security  Enhanced Linux Policy for the Internet Name
       server (named) daemon

DESCRIPTION
       Security-Enhanced Linux secures the named server via flexible mandatory
       access control.

BOOLEANS
       SELinux  policy  is customizable based on least access required.  So by
       default SElinux policy does not allow named to write master zone files.
       If  you want to have named update the master zone files you need to set
       the named_write_master_zones boolean.

       setsebool -P named_write_master_zones 1

       You can disable SELinux protection for the named daemon by executing:

       setsebool -P named_disable_trans 1
              service named restart

       system-config-securitylevel  is  a  GUI  tool  available  to  customize
       SELinux policy settings.
