I've installed an unofficial lineage OS 14.1 ROM on my phone and i want to have dnscrypt used on boot by default.

There is what i have done:

  1. Download arm binaries from: https://github.com/jedisct1/dnscrypt-proxy/releases
  2. Push dnscrypt-proxy in /system/xbin
  3. Push dnscrypt-proxy.toml in /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/
  4. Created the following script: /etc/init.d/99dnscrypt

    #!/system/bin/sh
    log -p i -t dnscrypt "Starting dnscrypt-proxy..."
    dnscrypt-proxy -config /system/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml &
    log -p i -t dnscrypt "Changing dns with iptables..."
    iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination 127.0.0.1:53
    
  5. Reboot

Now if i launch 99dnscrypt as root from adb it works like a charm

But on boot it does not.

On logcat i see this errors:

What is the difference between executing this as root after boot and launch it from init.d? Any idea how i can solve this?

Pardon me if I fail to sum up the wast subject in a brief answer :)

SELINUX AND AVC DENIALS

Android is based on Linux kernel that makes use of Discretionary and Mandatory Access Controls (DAC, MAC) to restrict access to system resources such as files on a certain filesystem. DAC includes classic UNIX RWX file modes, owner/group or UID/GID, Extended Attributes and Access Control Lists. XATTR and ACL are rarely used filesystem related attributes, though MAC also makes use of XATTRs. Root user (UID: 0) is the super user (administrator) within DAC mechanism which can bypass all permission checks imposed by kernel. To make controls more fine-grained, authorities of root user are further divided in subgroups called capabilities.

Coming to MAC, SELinux and AppArmor are commonly used Mandatory Access Control mechanisms. In SELinux model, every file/process is labeled with a context and rules are defined to allow a context access the other.
Say, we want to run command ls with context my_process on a file with context my_file, rule must be defined to allow this access:

allow my_process my_file file { getattr read open }

Otherwise access will be denied with error something like:

avc: denied { open } for pid=... comm="ls" path=... scontext=u:object_r:my_process:s0 tcontext=u:object_r:my_file:s0 tclass=file permissive=0

* File SELinux labels can be changed with chcon while processes can be started with a given context using runcon command.

SELINUX ON ANDROID

Android uses SELinux as part of its security implementations. When a ROM is compiled for a specific device, thousands of SE Policy rules are defined to allow all possible desired accesses. These rules are compiled into a binary file /sepolicy which is placed at root of initramfs in boot.img. This file is loaded during early boot process by init; the very first process that starts all other processes.
Init also starts different processes/services with different contexts as defined in their init *.rc files.
All filesystem labels are stored in multiple files saved in rootfs or at /system/etc/selinux/*_contexts, /vendor/etc/selinux/*_contexts etc. These labels can be restored by restorecon command.

ROOTING AND SELINUX

Now if you want to start a process with different context that hasn't been explicitly allowed in SE Policy, you need to define new rules. However that's not possible under normal circumstances as DAC, MAC and capabilities together won't let you do that. Here comes rooting the phone; let's take example of Magisk.
Magisk starts a daemon as an init service that lets any non-privileged process ask for super user rights. So the problem of UID 0 and lack of capabilities is resolved. In order to address SELinux denials, Magisk defines two new contexts: magisk for proccesses and magisk_file for filesystem. Then rules are defined to allow all access attempts from/to these contexts and /sepolicy is replaced with modified policy file. From now onward any processes running with Magisk rights won't be disallowed from doing anything. This could be really dangerous.

Now coming to your question,
You are starting a process with context u:r:sysinit:s0 which isn't allowed in policy to access all resources it needs. So what you can do is:

OPTION 1:
Run init.d scripts with root's privileges and forget about denials; DAC or MAC. Magisk, for instance, executes scripts placed in /data/adb/*.d directories on boot.
But as a common practice, processes shouldn't be given unnecessary privileges.

OPTION 2:
Set SELinux permissive:

/system/bin/setenforce 0
# OR
echo 0 >/sys/fs/selinux/enforce

But it disables SELinux for whole device which isn't recommended. So instead:

OPTION 3:
Set only sysinit to permissive:

/sbin/supolicy --live 'permissive sysinit'
# or let sysinit do anything without logging denials
/sbin/supolicy --live 'allow sysinit * *'

* supolicy tool is part of Magisk to manipulate SELinux policy. You can also use sepolicy-inject or similar tool.

All of the above solutions are a quick workaround but if you don't want to leave anything loose, go ahead.

OPTION 4:
We can define SEPolicy rules for sysinit context and save that as our default policy to be loaded on boot. For instance, avc denial in your log:

avc: denied { create } for scontext=u:r:sysinit:s0 tcontext=u:r:sysinit:s0 tclass=udp_socket permissive=0

can be converted to an SEPolicy rule:

allow sysinit sysinit udp_socket { create }

sysinit is an init service added to some custom ROMs that executes scripts under /system/etc/init.d/, but it's not a standard AOSP service and the UID, GID, supplementary groups, capabilities and SELinux contexts that this service runs with may differ on different devices.
So in a more general perspective, let's create a new dnscrypt-proxy init service with desired context and additionally with desired UID/GID/groups/capabilities to grant least required privileges.

HOW TO ADD CUSTOM INIT SERVICE TO ANDROID?

  1. Place executable binary at /system/xbin/dnscrypt-proxy
  2. Create directory /etc/dnscrypt-proxy, configuration file /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml and optionally /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/blacklist.txt if needed.

    listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:55']
    
    [blacklist]
      blacklist_file = '/system/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/blacklist.txt'
    
    [static]
      [static.'cloudflare']
      stamp = 'sdns://AgcAAAAAAAAABzEuMC4wLjGgENk8mGSlIfMGXMOlIlCcKvq7AVgcrZxtjon911-ep0cg63Ul-I8NlFj4GplQGb_TTLiczclX57DvMV8Q-JdjgRgSZG5zLmNsb3VkZmxhcmUuY29tCi9kbnMtcXVlcnk'
    
    • I'm using here port 55 because otherwise dnsmasq server will fail to listen on pre-occupied port 53 when tethering is turned on, causing hotspot to fail.
    • Private DNS (DoT) feature introduced in Android Pie doesn't use port 53. To enforce dnscrypt-proxy, Private DNS should be disabled.
  3. Create /etc/init/dnscrypt-proxy.rc.

    # define service
    service dnscrypt-proxy /system/bin/logwrapper /system/xbin/dnscrypt-proxy -config /system/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml
        seclabel u:r:dns_crypt:s0
        user 999
        group 999 3003
        disabled
        capabilities NET_BIND_SERVICE
    
    # start dnscrypt-proxy after netd daemon
    on property:init.svc.netd=running
        start dnscrypt-proxy
    
    # redirect all DNS queries to dnscrypt-proxy
    on property:init.svc.dnscrypt-proxy=running
        exec u:r:dns_crypt:s0 root root -- /system/bin/iptables -w 60 -t nat -I OUTPUT -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 127.0.0.1:55
    on property:init.svc.dnscrypt-proxy=stopped
        exec u:r:dns_crypt:s0 root root -- /system/bin/iptables -w 60 -t nat -D OUTPUT -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 127.0.0.1:55
    
    • Process doesn't need to be run as root. Use non-privileged UID 999 or any other UID not used by Android OS.
    • In order to access internet, process needs to be in group aid_inet (3003) or have the capability NET_RAW (create socket), and should have capability NET_BIND_SERVICE (bind to socket).
    • If you are using a firewall (like AFWall+) to block outbound traffic, you need to explicitly allow UID 999 on every boot:

      ~# iptables -I OUTPUT -m owner --uid-owner 999 -j ACCEPT
      
  4. Define SEPolicy rules:

    ~# supolicy --live 'create dns_crypt'                  # create new context
    ~# supolicy --live 'allow init dns_crypt process *'    # let init handle the service
    ~# supolicy --live 'allow dns_crypt dns_crypt * *'     # allow mutual love
    

    In the same way:

    # allow access to files under /system
        allow dns_crypt system_file dir { read open }
        allow dns_crypt system_file file { lock entrypoint execute_no_trans }
    # allow creatig/connecting to net sockets
        allow dns_crypt node tcp_socket { node_bind }
        allow dns_crypt node udp_socket { node_bind }
        allow dns_crypt port tcp_socket { name_bind name_connect }
        allow dns_crypt port udp_socket { name_bind }
    # allow reading /proc and /dev filesystem
        allow dns_crypt proc_net file { open read }
        allow dns_crypt proc_stat file { read }
        allow dns_crypt properties_device dir { read }
    # allow writing to logcat, logging to file requires different AVC rules
        allow dns_crypt devpts chr_file { open read write }
    
    • That's what works for me on AEX Pie ROM. However the labels and contexts may slightly differ on different Android versions and on different phones.

    • For testing, you can set SELinux permissive on boot by adding a line temporarily to dnscrypt-proxy.rc file:

      ...
      ...
      on property:init.svc.netd=running
          exec u:r:magisk:s0 root root -- /system/bin/setenforce 0
          start dnscrypt-proxy
      ...
      ...
      

      Then use dmesg to see avc denials and define any further rules.

  5. Save and load policy file.

    ~# supolicy --save /etc/selinux/sepolicy
    

    Live injecting a large number of rules to policy takes longer. Since these rules need to be loaded on every boot, save them as default sepolicy file.

    • Unpack boot.img and replace the /sepolicy file with yours. In this way the service will work even if the phone is not rooted.
    • However if you don't want to modify boot.img, you can take support from Magisk to load custom policy on boot before the dnscrypt-proxy service is started. It's because even init on its own can't load any custom policy once SELinux is set enforcing after loading default policy.

      ...
      ...
      on property:init.svc.netd=running
          exec u:r:magisk:s0 root root -- /system/bin/load_policy /system/etc/selinux/sepolicy
          start dnscrypt-proxy
      ...
      ...
      
  6. Set permissions and fix contexts:

    ~# chmod 0755 /etc/dnscrypt-proxy /system/xbin/dnscrypt-proxy
    ~# chmod 0644 /etc/init/dnscrypt-proxy.rc /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/* /etc/selinux/sepolicy
    ~# restorecon -Rv /system/xbin/dnscrypt-proxy /etc/*
    
  7. Reboot.

You have a harmless, innocent-looking dnscrypt-proxy service running on your device.

+1. As ever very detailed :)

@wellsaid 2019-02-13 12:03:34

Hi, this seems very promising! however in my rom (based on lineage OS 14.1) adding /etc/init/dnscrypt-proxy.rc does not seem to start the process (file permissions seem right). How can i verify its working? Furthermore i have no supolicy command.

@Irfan Latif 2019-02-13 12:52:43

Set SELinux permissive for testing initially. May be you need to define extra AVC rules. Once everything is in place, switch to enforcing mode. logwrapper writes to Android's logcat, so you can confirm by logcat | grep dnscrypt. supolicy comes with Magisk.

@wellsaid 2019-02-14 14:20:26

Thanks for all the help, i will give it a shot when i have time. In the mean time i have installed magisk and i have found this module: github.com/Magisk-Modules-Repo/dnscrypt-proxy. It does exactly what we are trying to accomplish right?

@Irfan Latif 2019-02-14 15:12:41

Yeah seems so, but I haven't given it a try.
