2009-12-16ima: limit imbalance msgMimi Zohar
Limit the number of imbalance messages to once per filesystem type instead of once per system boot. (it's actually slightly racy and could give you a couple per fs, but this isn't a real issue) Signed-off-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2009-12-16Untangling ima mess, part 3: kill dead code in imaAl Viro
Kill the 'update' argument of ima_path_check(), kill dead code in ima. Current rules: ima counters are bumped at the same time when the file switches from put_filp() fodder to fput() one. Which happens exactly in two places - alloc_file() and __dentry_open(). Nothing else needs to do that at all. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2009-11-24remove CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES compile optionSerge E. Hallyn
As far as I know, all distros currently ship kernels with default CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES=y. Since having the option on leaves a 'no_file_caps' option to boot without file capabilities, the main reason to keep the option is that turning it off saves you (on my s390x partition) 5k. In particular, vmlinux sizes came to: without patch fscaps=n: 53598392 without patch fscaps=y: 53603406 with this patch applied: 53603342 with the security-next tree. Against this we must weigh the fact that there is no simple way for userspace to figure out whether file capabilities are supported, while things like per-process securebits, capability bounding sets, and adding bits to pI if CAP_SETPCAP is in pE are not supported with SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES=n, leaving a bit of a problem for applications wanting to know whether they can use them and/or why something failed. It also adds another subtly different set of semantics which we must maintain at the risk of severe security regressions. So this patch removes the SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES compile option. It drops the kernel size by about 50k over the stock SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES=y kernel, by removing the cap_limit_ptraced_target() function.

2009-11-24SELinux: print denials for buggy kernel with unknown permsEric Paris
Historically we've seen cases where permissions are requested for classes where they do not exist. In particular we have seen CIFS forget to set i_mode to indicate it is a directory so when we later check something like remove_name we have problems since it wasn't defined in tclass file. This used to result in a avc which included the permission 0x2000 or something. Currently the kernel will deny the operations (good thing) but will not print ANY information (bad thing). First the auditdeny field is no extended to include unknown permissions. After that is fixed the logic in avc_dump_query to output this information isn't right since it will remove the permission from the av and print the phrase "<NULL>". This takes us back to the behavior before the classmap rewrite. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>

proc mount. With the change of sys_sysctl going through the internal proc mount we no longer need to handle security_sysctl in tomoyo as we have valid pathnames for all sysctl accesses. There is one slight caveat to that in that all of the paths from the internal mount look like "/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range" instead of "/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range" so tomoyo needs to add the "/proc" portion manually when resolving to full path names to get what it expects.

2009-10-15KEYS: get_instantiation_keyring() should inc the keyring refcount in all casesDavid Howells
The destination keyring specified to request_key() and co. is made available to the process that instantiates the key (the slave process started by /sbin/request-key typically). This is passed in the request_key_auth struct as the dest_keyring member. keyctl_instantiate_key and keyctl_negate_key() call get_instantiation_keyring() to get the keyring to attach the newly constructed key to at the end of instantiation. This may be given a specific keyring into which a link will be made later, or it may be asked to find the keyring passed to request_key(). In the former case, it returns a keyring with the refcount incremented by lookup_user_key(); in the latter case, it returns the keyring from the request_key_auth struct - and does _not_ increment the refcount. The latter case will eventually result in an oops when the keyring prematurely runs out of references and gets destroyed. The effect may take some time to show up as the key is destroyed lazily. To fix this, the keyring returned by get_instantiation_keyring() must always have its refcount incremented, no matter where it comes from. This can be tested by setting /etc/request-key.conf to: #OP TYPE DESCRIPTION CALLOUT INFO PROGRAM ARG1 ARG2 ARG3 ... #====== ======= =============== =============== =============================== create * test:* * |/bin/false %u %g %d %{user:_display} negate * * * /bin/keyctl negate %k 10 @u and then doing: keyctl add user _display aaaaaaaa @u while keyctl request2 user test:x test:x @u && keyctl list @u; do keyctl request2 user test:x test:x @u; sleep 31; keyctl list @u; done which will oops eventually. Changing the negate line to have @u rather than %S at the end is important as that forces the latter case by passing a special keyring ID rather than an actual keyring ID.

2009-10-07selinux: drop remapping of netlink classesStephen Smalley
Drop remapping of netlink classes and bypass of permission checking based on netlink message type for policy version < 18. This removes compatibility code introduced when the original single netlink security class used for all netlink sockets was split into finer-grained netlink classes based on netlink protocol and when permission checking was added based on netlink message type in Linux 2.6.8. The only known distribution that shipped with SELinux and policy < 18 was Fedora Core 2, which was EOL'd on 2005-04-11. Given that the remapping code was never updated to address the addition of newer netlink classes, that the corresponding userland support was dropped in 2005, and that the assumptions made by the remapping code about the fixed ordering among netlink classes in the policy may be violated in the future due to the dynamic class/perm discovery support, we should drop this compatibility code now.

2009-10-07selinux: dynamic class/perm discoveryStephen Smalley
Modify SELinux to dynamically discover class and permission values upon policy load, based on the dynamic object class/perm discovery logic from libselinux. A mapping is created between kernel-private class and permission indices used outside the security server and the policy values used within the security server. The mappings are only applied upon kernel-internal computations; similar mappings for the private indices of userspace object managers is handled on a per-object manager basis by the userspace AVC. The interfaces for compute_av and transition_sid are split for kernel vs. userspace; the userspace functions are distinguished by a _user suffix. The kernel-private class indices are no longer tied to the policy values and thus do not need to skip indices for userspace classes; thus the kernel class index values are compressed. The flask.h definitions were regenerated by deleting the userspace classes from refpolicy's definitions and then regenerating the headers. Going forward, we can just maintain the flask.h, av_permissions.h, and classmap.h definitions separately from policy as they are no longer tied to the policy values. The next patch introduces a utility to automate generation of flask.h and av_permissions.h from the classmap.h definitions. The older kernel class and permission string tables are removed and replaced by a single security class mapping table that is walked at policy load to generate the mapping. The old kernel class validation logic is completely replaced by the mapping logic. The handle unknown logic is reworked. reject_unknown=1 is handled when the mappings are computed at policy load time, similar to the old handling by the class validation logic. allow_unknown=1 is handled when computing and mapping decisions - if the permission was not able to be mapped (i.e. undefined, mapped to zero), then it is automatically added to the allowed vector. If the class was not able to be mapped (i.e. undefined, mapped to zero), then all permissions are allowed for it if allow_unknown=1. avc_audit leverages the new security class mapping table to lookup the class and permission names from the kernel-private indices. The mdp program is updated to use the new table when generating the class definitions and allow rules for a minimal boot policy for the kernel. It should be noted that this policy will not include any userspace classes, nor will its policy index values for the kernel classes correspond with the ones in refpolicy (they will instead match the kernel-private indices).

2009-09-30SELinux: reset the security_ops before flushing the avc cacheEric Paris
This patch resets the security_ops to the secondary_ops before it flushes the avc. It's still possible that a task on another processor could have already passed the security_ops dereference and be executing an selinux hook function which would add a new avc entry. That entry would still not be freed. This should however help to reduce the number of needless avcs the kernel has when selinux is disabled at run time. There is no wasted memory if selinux is disabled on the command line or not compiled. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>

2009-09-24do_wait() wakeup optimization: change __wake_up_parent() to use filtered wakeupOleg Nesterov
Ratan Nalumasu reported that in a process with many threads doing unnecessary wakeups. Every waiting thread in the process wakes up to loop through the children and see that the only ones it cares about are still not ready. Now that we have struct wait_opts we can change do_wait/__wake_up_parent to use filtered wakeups. We can make child_wait_callback() more clever later, right now it only checks eligible_child().

2009-09-24cgroups: let ss->can_attach and ss->attach do whole threadgroups at a timeBen Blum
Alter the ss->can_attach and ss->attach functions to be able to deal with a whole threadgroup at a time, for use in cgroup_attach_proc. (This is a pre-patch to cgroup-procs-writable.patch.) Currently, new mode of the attach function can only tell the subsystem about the old cgroup of the threadgroup leader. No subsystem currently needs that information for each thread that's being moved, but if one were to be added (for example, one that counts tasks within a group) this bit would need to be reworked a bit to tell the subsystem the right information.

2009-09-24lsm: Use a compressed IPv6 string format in audit eventsPaul Moore
Currently the audit subsystem prints uncompressed IPv6 addresses which not only differs from common usage but also results in ridiculously large audit strings which is not a good thing. This patch fixes this by simply converting audit to always print compressed IPv6 addresses. Old message example: audit(1253576792.161:30): avc: denied { ingress } for saddr=0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001 src=5000 daddr=0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001 dest=35502 netif=lo scontext=system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s15:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:object_r:lo_netif_t:s0-s15:c0.c1023 tclass=netif New message example: audit(1253576792.161:30): avc: denied { ingress } for saddr=::1 src=5000 daddr=::1 dest=35502 netif=lo scontext=system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s15:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:object_r:lo_netif_t:s0-s15:c0.c1023 tclass=netif Signed-off-by: Paul Moore <paul.moore@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2009-09-23SELinux: do not destroy the avc_cache_nodepEric Paris
The security_ops reset done when SELinux is disabled at run time is done after the avc cache is freed and after the kmem_cache for the avc is also freed. This means that between the time the selinux disable code destroys the avc_node_cachep another process could make a security request and could try to allocate from the cache. We are just going to leave the cachep around, like we always have. SELinux: Disabled at runtime.

2009-09-23KEYS: Have the garbage collector set its timer for live expired keysDavid Howells
The key garbage collector sets a timer to start a new collection cycle at the point the earliest key to expire should be considered garbage. However, it currently only does this if the key it is considering hasn't yet expired. If the key being considering has expired, but hasn't yet reached the collection time then it is ignored, and won't be collected until some other key provokes a round of collection. Make the garbage collector set the timer for the earliest key that hasn't yet passed its collection time, rather than the earliest key that hasn't yet expired.
