About Apache2 with RBAC

About Apache2 with RBAC

Hi all,
I'm trying to configure Apache2 with RBAC for reduce some privileges and run this service only with user webservd
...but the parent process (root) still exists!

my steps:


# svcadm -v disable -s apache2

# svccfg -s apache2
svc:/network/http:apache2> setprop start/user = astring: webservd
svc:/network/http:apache2> setprop start/group = astring: webservd
svc:/network/http:apache2> setprop start/privileges = astring: basic,!proc_session,!proc_info,!file_link_any,net_privaddr
svc:/network/http:apache2> end

# svcadm -v refresh apache2

# svcprop apache2 | grep ^start
startd/ignore_error astring core,signal
start/exec astring /lib/svc/method/http-apache2\ start
start/timeout_seconds count 60
start/type astring method
start/user astring webservd
start/group astring webservd
start/privileges astring basic,!proc_session,!proc_info,!file_link_any,net_privaddr

# svcadm -v enable -s apache2

# ps -ef | grep apache2
webservd  4205  4204 0 19:03:22 ? 0:00 /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
    root  4204     1 0 19:03:21 ? 0:00 /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
webservd  4209  4204 0 19:03:22 ? 0:00 /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
webservd  4208  4204 0 19:03:22 ? 0:00 /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
webservd  4206  4204 0 19:03:22 ? 0:00 /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
webservd  4207  4204 0 19:03:22 ? 0:00 /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
...and obviously...


# ppriv 4204
4204:    /usr/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
flags = <none>
    E: all
    I: basic
    P: all
    L: all
What's wrong?
Any idea?

PS: sorry about my english

RE: About Apache2 with RBAC


--- Now the user webservd has the ability to restart the service (with svcadm disable/restart..etc).

--- All Apache files, logs, conf., pid etc. are only owned by user webservd because I didn't created  other administrative roles (like svcadm or webdev)

--- Authorizations "sunw.smf.manage.http/apache2" and "sunw.smf.modify.application.http/apache2" have been applied to user webservd
