2013-01-11Documentation: remove depends on CONFIG_EXPERIMENTALKees Cook1-1/+1
The CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL config item has not carried much meaning for a while now and is almost always enabled by default. As agreed during the Linux kernel summit, remove it from any "depends on" lines in Kconfigs.

2010-08-04Documentation: update broken web addresses.Justin P. Mattock1-7/+5
Below you will find an updated version from the original series bunching all patches into one big patch updating broken web addresses that are located in Documentation/* Some of the addresses date as far far back as 1995 etc... so searching became a bit difficult, the best way to deal with these is to use web.archive.org to locate these addresses that are outdated. Now there are also some addresses pointing to .spec files some are located, but some(after searching on the companies site)where still no where to be found. In this case I just changed the address to the company site this way the users can contact the company and they can locate them for the users. Signed-off-by: Justin P.

2010-03-19x86, tboot: Add support for S3 memory integrity protectionShane Wang1-7/+9
This patch adds support for S3 memory integrity protection within an Intel(R) TXT launched kernel, for all kernel and userspace memory. All RAM used by the kernel and userspace, as indicated by memory ranges of type E820_RAM and E820_RESERVED_KERN in the e820 table, will be integrity protected. The MAINTAINERS file is also updated to reflect the maintainers of the TXT-related code. All MACing is done in tboot, based on a complexity analysis and tradeoff. v3: Compared with v2, this patch adds a check of array size in tboot.c, and a note to specify which c/s of tboot supports this kind of MACing in intel_txt.txt.

2009-07-21x86, intel_txt: Intel TXT boot supportJoseph Cihula1-0/+210
This patch adds kernel configuration and boot support for Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT). Intel's technology for safer computing, Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT), defines platform-level enhancements that provide the building blocks for creating trusted platforms. Intel TXT was formerly known by the code name LaGrande Technology (LT). Intel TXT in Brief: o Provides dynamic root of trust for measurement (DRTM) o Data protection in case of improper shutdown o Measurement and verification of launched environment Intel TXT is part of the vPro(TM) brand and is also available some non-vPro systems. It is currently available on desktop systems based on the Q35, X38, Q45, and Q43 Express chipsets (e.g. Dell Optiplex 755, HP dc7800, etc.) and mobile systems based on the GM45, PM45, and GS45 Express chipsets. For more information, see http://www.intel.com/technology/security/. This site also has a link to the Intel TXT MLE Developers Manual, which has been updated for the new released platforms. A much more complete description of how these patches support TXT, how to configure a system for it, etc. is in the Documentation/intel_txt.txt file in this patch. This patch provides the TXT support routines for complete functionality, documentation for TXT support and for the changes to the boot_params structure, and boot detection of a TXT launch. Attempts to shutdown (reboot, Sx) the system will result in platform resets; subsequent patches will support these shutdown modes properly.
