IssueRSA Authentication Agent for PAM doesn't work with SELinux enabled.
ResolutionIf SELinux is already enabled on the system, before you install the RSA Authentication Agent, you must install:
  • selinux-policy-devel*.noarch.rpm, and
  • policycoreutils-devel*.rpm.
NotesIn case the agent is already installed, you need to uninstall it by following the uninstall procedure in the RSA Authentication Agent 7.1 for PAM Installation and Configuration Guide for RHEL.
Once the agent is uninstalled, install the required packages and then reinstall the agent.
To determine if SELinux is enabled, run the following Linux command:

If the output value is Enforcing, then SELinux is enabled.
