I am currently working on a new authoritative nameserver using powerdns on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I'd like to have AppArmor protecting this service like it did with bind, but when I look in /etc/apparmor.d/, there was no AppArmor profile for this service installed by default.

Any experienced pdns admins know what all files pdns accesses, so I can define a profile? Or better yet, does anyone HAVE a profile for pdns?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Well if you can't find a profile then make your own. AppArmor profiles are pretty easy to make.

Yes, I mentioned this in the original question. I will post the profile here. – Cory J Jan 30 '10 at 1:51
Accepted very late, I did end up using aa-genprof when I finally came back to this. Do this. – Cory J Jun 15 '10 at 2:19
