strongswan (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

af-alg is set to load=yes by default
No other component hit this yet, but swanctl complaind about

apparmor="DENIED" operation="create" profile="/usr/sbin/swanctl" pid=4094 comm="swanctl" family="alg" sock_type="seqpacket" protocol=0 requested_mask="create" denied_mask="create"

lets add a rule for that to swanctl (since we didn#t see it anywhere else not added to other strongswan profiles yet)

This rule will do it:
 network alg seqpacket,

I'm seeing this warning in my logs in Bionic. Has a fix been released for it as well? If not, should it be, and does it cause any degradation in functionality?

Hi Daniel,
since af-alg is part of the very uncommonly used -extra-plugins and a fix for the user is trivially available this was not backported to not affect any existing systems (suddenly activating more function on an SRU update).

The fix (if affected and important to you) prior to Ubuntu 19.04 is to edit:
and there add the line:
  # for af-alg plugin
  network alg seqpacket,

That will fix the issue for you as well then.
