2007-02-14[PATCH] selinux: enhance selinux to always ignore private inodesStephen Smalley1-0/+3
Hmmm...turns out to not be quite enough, as the /proc/sys inodes aren't truly private to the fs, so we can run into them in a variety of security hooks beyond just the inode hooks, such as security_file_permission (when reading and writing them via the vfs helpers), security_sb_mount (when mounting other filesystems on directories in proc like binfmt_misc), and deeper within the security module itself (as in flush_unauthorized_files upon inheritance across execve). So I think we have to add an IS_PRIVATE() guard within SELinux, as below. Note however that the use of the private flag here could be confusing, as these inodes are _not_ private to the fs, are exposed to userspace, and security modules must implement the sysctl hook to get any access control over them.

2007-02-14[PATCH] sysctl: fix the selinux_sysctl_get_sidEric W. Biederman1-0/+6
I goofed and when reenabling the fine grained selinux labels for sysctls and forgot to add the "/sys" prefix before consulting the policy database. When computing the same path using proc_dir_entries we got the "/sys" for free as it was part of the tree, but it isn't true for clt_table trees. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2007-02-14[PATCH] remove many unneeded #includes of sched.hTim Schmielau1-1/+0
After Al Viro (finally) succeeded in removing the sched.h #include in module.h recently, it makes sense again to remove other superfluous sched.h includes. There are quite a lot of files which include it but don't actually need anything defined in there. Presumably these includes were once needed for macros that used to live in sched.h, but moved to other header files in the course of cleaning it up. To ease the pain, this time I did not fiddle with any header files and only removed #includes from .c-files, which tend to cause less trouble. Compile tested against 2.6.20-rc2 and 2.6.20-rc2-mm2 (with offsets) on alpha, arm, i386, ia64, mips, powerpc, and x86_64 with allnoconfig, defconfig, allmodconfig, and allyesconfig as well as a few randconfigs on x86_64 and all configs in arch/arm/configs on arm. I also checked that no new warnings were introduced by the patch (actually, some warnings are removed that were emitted by unnecessarily included header files).

2006-12-10[PATCH] fdtable: Make fdarray and fdsets equal in sizeVadim Lobanov1-1/+1
Currently, each fdtable supports three dynamically-sized arrays of data: the fdarray and two fdsets. The code allows the number of fds supported by the fdarray (fdtable->max_fds) to differ from the number of fds supported by each of the fdsets (fdtable->max_fdset). In practice, it is wasteful for these two sizes to differ: whenever we hit a limit on the smaller-capacity structure, we will reallocate the entire fdtable and all the dynamic arrays within it, so any delta in the memory used by the larger-capacity structure will never be touched at all. Rather than hogging this excess, we shouldn't even allocate it in the first place, and keep the capacities of the fdarray and the fdsets equal. This patch removes fdtable->max_fdset. As an added bonus, most of the supporting code becomes simpler.

2006-12-08[PATCH] tty: ->signal->tty lockingPeter Zijlstra1-4/+7
Fix the locking of signal->tty. Use ->sighand->siglock to protect ->signal->tty; this lock is already used by most other members of ->signal/->sighand. And unless we are 'current' or the tasklist_lock is held we need ->siglock to access ->signal anyway. (NOTE: sys_unshare() is broken wrt ->sighand locking rules) Note that tty_mutex is held over tty destruction, so while holding tty_mutex any tty pointer remains valid. Otherwise the lifetime of ttys are governed by their open file handles. This leaves some holes for tty access from signal->tty (or any other non file related tty access). It solves the tty SLAB scribbles we were seeing. (NOTE: the change from group_send_sig_info to __group_send_sig_info needs to be examined by someone familiar with the security framework, I think it is safe given the SEND_SIG_PRIV from other __group_send_sig_info invocations) [schwidefsky@de.ibm.com: 3270 fix] [akpm@osdl.org: various post-viro fixes] Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com> Cc: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Cc: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com> Cc: Chris Wright <chrisw@sous-sol.org> Cc: Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com> Cc: Stephen Smalley <sds@tycho.nsa.gov> Cc: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org> Cc: "David S.

2006-12-02NetLabel: convert to an extensibile/sparse category bitmapPaul Moore5-250/+199
The original NetLabel category bitmap was a straight char bitmap which worked fine for the initial release as it only supported 240 bits due to limitations in the CIPSO restricted bitmap tag (tag type 0x01). This patch converts that straight char bitmap into an extensibile/sparse bitmap in order to lay the foundation for other CIPSO tag types and protocols. This patch also has a nice side effect in that all of the security attributes passed by NetLabel into the LSM are now in a format which is in the host's native byte/bit ordering which makes the LSM specific code much simpler; look at the changes in security/selinux/ss/ebitmap.c as an example.

2006-12-02[SELinux]: Add support for DCCPJames Morris6-8/+103
This patch implements SELinux kernel support for DCCP (http://linux-net.osdl.org/index.php/DCCP), which is similar in operation to TCP in terms of connected state between peers. The SELinux support for DCCP is thus modeled on existing handling of TCP. A new DCCP socket class is introduced, to allow protocol differentation. The permissions for this class inherit all of the socket permissions, as well as the current TCP permissions (node_bind, name_bind etc). IPv4 and IPv6 are supported, although labeled networking is not, at this stage. Patches for SELinux userspace are at: http://people.redhat.com/jmorris/selinux/dccp/user/ I've performed some basic testing, and it seems to be working as expected. Adding policy support is similar to TCP, the only real difference being that it's a different protocol.

2006-11-28SELinux: validate kernel object classes and permissionsChad Sellers1-1/+137
This is a new object class and permission validation scheme that validates against the defined kernel headers. This scheme allows extra classes and permissions that do not conflict with the kernel definitions to be added to the policy. This validation is now done for all policy loads, not just subsequent loads after the first policy load. The implementation walks the three structrures containing the defined object class and permission values and ensures their values are the same in the policy being loaded. This includes verifying the object classes themselves, the permissions they contain, and the permissions they inherit from commons. Classes or permissions that are present in the kernel but missing from the policy cause a warning (printed to KERN_INFO) to be printed, but do not stop the policy from loading, emulating current behavior. Any other inconsistencies cause the load to fail. Signed-off-by: Chad Sellers <csellers@tresys.com> Acked-by: Stephen Smalley <sds@tycho.nsa.gov> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>

The only implementations of these currently are symhash and symcmp, which do not modify the key. The key parameter should never be changed by any of these, so it should be const.

This patch makes two changes to protect applications from either removing or tampering with the CIPSOv4 IP option on a socket. The first is the requirement that applications have the CAP_NET_RAW capability to set an IPOPT_CIPSO option on a socket; this prevents untrusted applications from setting their own CIPSOv4 security attributes on the packets they send. The second change is to SELinux and it prevents applications from setting any IPv4 options when there is an IPOPT_CIPSO option already present on the socket; this prevents applications from removing CIPSOv4 security attributes from the packets they send.

This patch fixes two bugs in policydb_destroy. Two list pointers (policydb.ocontexts[i] and policydb.genfs) were not being reset to NULL when the lists they pointed to were being freed. This caused a problem when the initial policy load failed, as the policydb being destroyed was not a temporary new policydb that was thrown away, but rather was the global (active) policydb. Consequently, later functions, particularly sys_bind->selinux_socket_bind->security_node_sid and do_rw_proc->selinux_sysctl->selinux_proc_get_sid->security_genfs_sid tried to dereference memory that had previously been freed.

2006-10-11IPsec: correct semantics for SELinux policy matchingVenkat Yekkirala2-13/+43
Currently when an IPSec policy rule doesn't specify a security context, it is assumed to be "unlabeled" by SELinux, and so the IPSec policy rule fails to match to a flow that it would otherwise match to, unless one has explicitly added an SELinux policy rule allowing the flow to "polmatch" to the "unlabeled" IPSec policy rules. In the absence of such an explicitly added SELinux policy rule, the IPSec policy rule fails to match and so the packet(s) flow in clear text without the otherwise applicable xfrm(s) applied. The above SELinux behavior violates the SELinux security notion of "deny by default" which should actually translate to "encrypt by default" in the above case. This was first reported by Evgeniy Polyakov and the way James Morris was seeing the problem was when connecting via IPsec to a confined service on an SELinux box (vsftpd), which did not have the appropriate SELinux policy permissions to send packets via IPsec. With this patch applied, SELinux "polmatching" of flows Vs. IPSec policy rules will only come into play when there's a explicit context specified for the IPSec policy rule (which also means there's corresponding SELinux policy allowing appropriate domains/flows to polmatch to this context). Secondly, when a security module is loaded (in this case, SELinux), the security_xfrm_policy_lookup() hook can return errors other than access denied, such as -EINVAL. We were not handling that correctly, and in fact inverting the return logic and propagating a false "ok" back up to xfrm_lookup(), which then allowed packets to pass as if they were not associated with an xfrm policy. The solution for this is to first ensure that errno values are correctly propagated all the way back up through the various call chains from security_xfrm_policy_lookup(), and handled correctly. Then, flow_cache_lookup() is modified, so that if the policy resolver fails (typically a permission denied via the security module), the flow cache entry is killed rather than having a null policy assigned (which indicates that the packet can pass freely). This also forces any future lookups for the same flow to consult the security module (e.g. SELinux) for current security policy (rather than, say, caching the error on the flow cache entry). This patch: Fix the selinux side of things. This makes sure SELinux polmatching of flow contexts to IPSec policy rules comes into play only when an explicit context is associated with the IPSec policy rule. Also, this no longer defaults the context of a socket policy to the context of the socket since the "no explicit context" case is now handled properly.

2006-10-11NetLabel: use SECINITSID_UNLABELED for a base SIDpaul.moore@hp.com1-20/+9

2006-10-11NetLabel: fix a cache race conditionpaul.moore@hp.com1-16/+21
Testing revealed a problem with the NetLabel cache where a cached entry could be freed while in use by the LSM layer causing an oops and other problems. This patch fixes that problem by introducing a reference counter to the cache entry so that it is only freed when it is no longer in use.

2006-09-29[PATCH] SELinux: support mls categories for context mountsCory Olmo1-5/+30
Allows commas to be embedded into context mount options (i.e. "-o context=some_selinux_context_t"), to better support multiple categories, which are separated by commas and confuse mount. For example, with the current code: mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom -o \ ro,context=system_u:object_r:iso9660_t:s0:c1,c3,c4,exec The context option that will be interpreted by SELinux is context=system_u:object_r:iso9660_t:s0:c1 instead of context=system_u:object_r:iso9660_t:s0:c1,c3,c4 The options that will be passed on to the file system will be ro,c3,c4,exec. The proposed solution is to allow/require the SELinux context option specified to mount to use quotes when the context contains a comma. This patch modifies the option parsing in parse_opts(), contained in mount.c, to take options after finding a comma only if it hasn't seen a quote or if the quotes are matched. It also introduces a new function that will strip the quotes from the context option prior to translation. The quotes are replaced after the translation is completed to insure that in the event the raw context contains commas the kernel will be able to interpret the correct context.

2006-09-27[PATCH] inode-diet: Eliminate i_blksize from the inode structureTheodore Ts'o1-1/+0
This eliminates the i_blksize field from struct inode. Filesystems that want to provide a per-inode st_blksize can do so by providing their own getattr routine instead of using the generic_fillattr() function. Note that some filesystems were providing pretty much random (and incorrect) values for i_blksize.
