The 'guilty' commit changed the order of cleanup code so that nsproxy->mnt_ns was not already available for Apparmor. Discussion about the issue with Al Viro and Eric W. Biederman suggested that kernel_read() is too high-level for IMA. Another issue, except security checking, that was identified is mandatory locking. kernel_read honors it as well and it might prevent IMA from calculating necessary hash. It was suggested to use simplified version of the function without security and locking checks. This patch introduces special version ima_kernel_read(), which skips security and mandatory locking checking. It prevents the kernel oops to happen.

2014-06-12evm: prohibit userspace writing 'security.evm' HMAC valueMimi Zohar1-2/+10
Calculating the 'security.evm' HMAC value requires access to the EVM encrypted key. Only the kernel should have access to it. This patch prevents userspace tools(eg. setfattr, cp --preserve=xattr) from setting/modifying the 'security.evm' HMAC value directly.

2014-06-12ima: check inode integrity cache in violation checkDmitry Kasatkin1-2/+7
When IMA did not support ima-appraisal, existance of the S_IMA flag clearly indicated that the file was measured. With IMA appraisal S_IMA flag indicates that file was measured and/or appraised. Because of this, when measurement is not enabled by the policy, violations are still reported. To differentiate between measurement and appraisal policies this patch checks the inode integrity cache flags. The IMA_MEASURED flag indicates whether the file was actually measured, while the IMA_MEASURE flag indicates whether the file should be measured. Unfortunately, the IMA_MEASURED flag is reset to indicate the file needs to be re-measured. Thus, this patch checks the IMA_MEASURE flag. This patch limits the false positive violation reports, but does not fix it entirely. The IMA_MEASURE/IMA_MEASURED flags are indications that, at some point in time, the file opened for read was in policy, but might not be in policy now (eg. different uid). Other changes would be needed to further limit false positive violation reports.

2014-06-12evm: replace HMAC version with attribute maskDmitry Kasatkin4-11/+33
Using HMAC version limits the posibility to arbitrarily add new attributes such as SMACK64EXEC to the hmac calculation. This patch replaces hmac version with attribute mask. Desired attributes can be enabled with configuration parameter. It allows to build kernels which works with previously labeled filesystems. Currently supported attribute is 'fsuuid' which is equivalent of the former version 2. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Kasatkin <d.kasatkin@samsung.com> Signed-off-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

2014-06-03ima: audit log files opened with O_DIRECT flagMimi Zohar4-3/+19
Files are measured or appraised based on the IMA policy. When a file, in policy, is opened with the O_DIRECT flag, a deadlock occurs. The first attempt at resolving this lockdep temporarily removed the O_DIRECT flag and restored it, after calculating the hash. The second attempt introduced the O_DIRECT_HAVELOCK flag. Based on this flag, do_blockdev_direct_IO() would skip taking the i_mutex a second time. The third attempt, by Dmitry Kasatkin, resolves the i_mutex locking issue, by re-introducing the IMA mutex, but uncovered another problem. Reading a file with O_DIRECT flag set, writes directly to userspace pages. A second patch allocates a user-space like memory. This works for all IMA hooks, except ima_file_free(), which is called on __fput() to recalculate the file hash. Until this last issue is addressed, do not 'collect' the measurement for measuring, appraising, or auditing files opened with the O_DIRECT flag set. Based on policy, permit or deny file access. This patch defines a new IMA policy rule option named 'permit_directio'. Policy rules could be defined, based on LSM or other criteria, to permit specific applications to open files with the O_DIRECT flag set.

2014-05-13cgroup: replace cftype->write_string() with cftype->write()Tejun Heo1-7/+7
Convert all cftype->write_string() users to the new cftype->write() which maps directly to kernfs write operation and has full access to kernfs and cgroup contexts. The conversions are mostly mechanical. * @css and @cft are accessed using of_css() and of_cft() accessors respectively instead of being specified as arguments. * Should return @nbytes on success instead of 0. * @buf is not trimmed automatically. Trim if necessary. Note that blkcg and netprio don't need this as the parsers already handle whitespaces. cftype->write_string() has no user left after the conversions and removed. While at it, remove unnecessary local variable @p in cgroup_subtree_control_write() and stale comment about CGROUP_LOCAL_BUFFER_SIZE in cgroup_freezer.c.

2014-05-05device_cgroup: check if exception removal is allowedAristeu Rozanski1-3/+38
[PATCH v3 1/2] device_cgroup: check if exception removal is allowed When the device cgroup hierarchy was introduced in bd2953ebbb53 - devcg: propagate local changes down the hierarchy a specific case was overlooked. Consider the hierarchy bellow: A default policy: ALLOW, exceptions will deny access \ B default policy: ALLOW, exceptions will deny access There's no need to verify when an new exception is added to B because in this case exceptions will deny access to further devices, which is always fine. Hierarchy in device cgroup only makes sure B won't have more access than A. But when an exception is removed (by writing devices.allow), it isn't checked if the user is in fact removing an inherited exception from A, thus giving more access to B. Example: # echo 'a' >A/devices.allow # echo 'c 1:3 rw' >A/devices.deny # echo $$ >A/B/tasks # echo >/dev/null -bash: /dev/null: Operation not permitted # echo 'c 1:3 w' >A/B/devices.allow # echo >/dev/null # This shouldn't be allowed and this patch fixes it by making sure to never allow exceptions in this case to be removed if the exception is partially or fully present on the parent. v3: missing '*' in function description v2: improved log message and formatting fixes Cc: cgroups@vger.kernel.org Cc: Li Zefan <lizefan@huawei.com> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Aristeu Rozanski <arozansk@redhat.com> Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

2014-04-22locks: rename file-private locks to "open file description locks"Jeff Layton1-3/+3
File-private locks have been merged into Linux for v3.15, and *now* people are commenting that the name and macro definitions for the new file-private locks suck. ...and I can't even disagree. The names and command macros do suck. We're going to have to live with these for a long time, so it's important that we be happy with the names before we're stuck with them. The consensus on the lists so far is that they should be rechristened as "open file description locks". The name isn't a big deal for the kernel, but the command macros are not visually distinct enough from the traditional POSIX lock macros. The glibc and documentation folks are recommending that we change them to look like F_OFD_{GETLK|SETLK|SETLKW}. That lessens the chance that a programmer will typo one of the commands wrong, and also makes it easier to spot this difference when reading code. This patch makes the following changes that I think are necessary before v3.15 ships: 1) rename the command macros to their new names. These end up in the uapi headers and so are part of the external-facing API. It turns out that glibc doesn't actually use the fcntl.h uapi header, but it's hard to be sure that something else won't. Changing it now is safest. 2) make the the /proc/locks output display these as type "OFDLCK" Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk.manpages@gmail.com> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@infradead.org> Cc: Carlos O'Donell <carlos@redhat.com> Cc: Stefan Metzmacher <metze@samba.org> Cc: Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net> Cc: Frank Filz <ffilzlnx@mindspring.com> Cc: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com>
2014-04-21device_cgroup: rework device access check and exception checkingAristeu Rozanski1-40/+122
Whenever a device file is opened and checked against current device cgroup rules, it uses the same function (may_access()) as when a new exception rule is added by writing devices.{allow,deny}. And in both cases, the algorithm is the same, doesn't matter the behavior. First problem is having device access to be considered the same as rule checking. Consider the following structure: A (default behavior: allow, exceptions disallow access) \ B (default behavior: allow, exceptions disallow access) A new exception is added to B by writing devices.deny: c 12:34 rw When checking if that exception is allowed in may_access(): if (dev_cgroup->behavior == DEVCG_DEFAULT_ALLOW) { if (behavior == DEVCG_DEFAULT_ALLOW) { /* the exception will deny access to certain devices */ return true; Which is ok, since B is not getting more privileges than A, it doesn't matter and the rule is accepted Now, consider it's a device file open check and the process belongs to cgroup B. The access will be generated as: behavior: allow exception: c 12:34 rw The very same chunk of code will allow it, even if there's an explicit exception telling to do otherwise. A simple test case: # mkdir new_group # cd new_group # echo $$ >tasks # echo "c 1:3 w" >devices.deny # echo >/dev/null # echo $? 0 This is a serious bug and was introduced on c39a2a3018f8 devcg: prepare may_access() for hierarchy support To solve this problem, the device file open function was split from the new exception check. Second problem is how exceptions are processed by may_access(). The first part of the said function tries to match fully with an existing exception: list_for_each_entry_rcu(ex, &dev_cgroup->exceptions, list) { if ((refex->type & DEV_BLOCK) && !(ex->type & DEV_BLOCK)) continue; if ((refex->type & DEV_CHAR) && !(ex->type & DEV_CHAR)) continue; if (ex->major != ~0 && ex->major != refex->major) continue; if (ex->minor != ~0 && ex->minor != refex->minor) continue; if (refex->access & (~ex->access)) continue; match = true; break; } That means the new exception should be contained into an existing one to be considered a match: New exception Existing match? notes b 12:34 rwm b 12:34 rwm yes b 12:34 r b *:34 rw yes b 12:34 rw b 12:34 w no extra "r" b *:34 rw b 12:34 rw no too broad "*" b *:34 rw b *:34 rwm yes Which is fine in some cases. Consider: A (default behavior: deny, exceptions allow access) \ B (default behavior: deny, exceptions allow access) In this case the full match makes sense, the new exception cannot add more access than the parent allows But this doesn't always work, consider: A (default behavior: allow, exceptions disallow access) \ B (default behavior: deny, exceptions allow access) In this case, a new exception in B shouldn't match any of the exceptions in A, after all you can't allow something that was forbidden by A. But consider this scenario: New exception Existing in A match? outcome b 12:34 rw b 12:34 r no exception is accepted Because the new exception has "w" as extra, it doesn't match, so it'll be added to B's exception list. The same problem can happen during a file access check. Consider a cgroup with allow as default behavior: Access Exception match? b 12:34 rw b 12:34 r no In this case, the access didn't match any of the exceptions in the cgroup, which is required since exceptions will disallow access. To solve this problem, two new functions were created to match an exception either fully or partially. In the example above, a partial check will be performed and it'll produce a match since at least "b 12:34 r" from "b 12:34 rw" access matches.

2014-04-11SMACK: Fix handling value==NULL in post setxattrJosé Bollo1-1/+3
The function `smack_inode_post_setxattr` is called each time that a setxattr is done, for any value of name. The kernel allow to put value==NULL when size==0 to set an empty attribute value. The systematic call to smk_import_entry was causing the dereference of a NULL pointer hence a KERNEL PANIC! The problem can be produced easily by issuing the command `setfattr -n user.data file` under bash prompt when SMACK is active. Moving the call to smk_import_entry as proposed by this patch is correcting the behaviour because the function smack_inode_post_setxattr is called for the SMACK's attributes only if the function smack_inode_setxattr validated the value and its size (what will not be the case when size==0). It also has a benefical effect to not fill the smack hash with garbage values coming from any extended attribute write.

The decision whether we can trace a process is made in the following functions: smack_ptrace_traceme() smack_ptrace_access_check() smack_bprm_set_creds() (in case the proces is traced) This patch unifies all those decisions by introducing one function that checks whether ptrace is allowed: smk_ptrace_rule_check(). This makes possible to actually trace with TRACEME where first the TRACEME itself must be allowed and then exec() on a traced process. Additional bugs fixed: - The decision is made according to the mode parameter that is now correctly translated from PTRACE_MODE_* to MAY_* instead of being treated 1:1. PTRACE_MODE_READ requires MAY_READ. PTRACE_MODE_ATTACH requires MAY_READWRITE. - Add a smack audit log in case of exec() refused by bprm_set_creds(). - Honor the PTRACE_MODE_NOAUDIT flag and don't put smack audit info in case this flag is set.

After conversion to kernfs, internal object lifetime and locking rules are mostly isolated from vfs interactions allowing shedding of several nasty hacks and overall simplification. This will also allow implmentation of operations which may affect multiple cgroups which weren't possible before as it would have required nesting i_mutexes. - Various simplifications including dropping of module support, easier cgroup name/path handling, simplified cgroup file type handling and task_cg_lists optimization. - Prepatory changes for the planned unified hierarchy, which is still a patchset away from being actually operational. The dummy hierarchy is updated to serve as the default unified hierarchy. Controllers which aren't claimed by other hierarchies are associated with it, which BTW was what the dummy hierarchy was for anyway. - Various fixes from Li and others. This pull request includes some patches to add missing slab.h to various subsystems. This was triggered xattr.h include removal from cgroup.h. cgroup.h indirectly got included a lot of files which brought in xattr.h which brought in slab.h. There are several merge commits - one to pull in kernfs updates necessary for converting cgroup (already in upstream through driver-core), others for interfering changes in the fixes branch" * 'for-3.15' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup: (74 commits) cgroup: remove useless argument from cgroup_exit() cgroup: fix spurious lockdep warning in cgroup_exit() cgroup: Use RCU_INIT_POINTER(x, NULL) in cgroup.c cgroup: break kernfs active_ref protection in cgroup directory operations cgroup: fix cgroup_taskset walking order cgroup: implement CFTYPE_ONLY_ON_DFL cgroup: make cgrp_dfl_root mountable cgroup: drop const from @buffer of cftype->write_string() cgroup: rename cgroup_dummy_root and related names cgroup: move ->subsys_mask from cgroupfs_root to cgroup cgroup: treat cgroup_dummy_root as an equivalent hierarchy during rebinding cgroup: remove NULL checks from [pr_cont_]cgroup_{name|path}() cgroup: use cgroup_setup_root() to initialize cgroup_dummy_root cgroup: reorganize cgroup bootstrapping cgroup: relocate setting of CGRP_DEAD cpuset: use rcu_read_lock() to protect task_cs() cgroup_freezer: document freezer_fork() subtleties cgroup: update cgroup_transfer_tasks() to either succeed or fail cgroup: drop task_lock() protection around task->cgroups cgroup: update how a newly forked task gets associated with css_set ...
