2011-03-29selinux: Fix regression for XorgStephen Smalley1-1/+1
Commit 6f5317e730505d5cbc851c435a2dfe3d5a21d343 introduced a bug in the handling of userspace object classes that is causing breakage for Xorg when XSELinux is enabled. Fix the bug by changing map_class() to return SECCLASS_NULL when the class cannot be mapped to a kernel object class. Reported-by: "Justin P.

2011-03-23userns: allow ptrace from non-init user namespacesSerge E. Hallyn1-8/+32
ptrace is allowed to tasks in the same user namespace according to the usual rules (i.e. the same rules as for two tasks in the init user namespace). ptrace is also allowed to a user namespace to which the current task the has CAP_SYS_PTRACE capability. Changelog: Dec 31: Address feedback by Eric: . Correct ptrace uid check . Rename may_ptrace_ns to ptrace_capable . Also fix the cap_ptrace checks. Jan 1: Use const cred struct Jan 11: use task_ns_capable() in place of ptrace_capable(). Feb 23: same_or_ancestore_user_ns() was not an appropriate check to constrain cap_issubset.

2011-03-23userns: security: make capabilities relative to the user namespaceSerge E. Hallyn4-20/+52
- Introduce ns_capable to test for a capability in a non-default user namespace. - Teach cap_capable to handle capabilities in a non-default user namespace. The motivation is to get to the unprivileged creation of new namespaces. It looks like this gets us 90% of the way there, with only potential uid confusion issues left. I still need to handle getting all caps after creation but otherwise I think I have a good starter patch that achieves all of your goals. Changelog: 11/05/2010: [serge] add apparmor 12/14/2010: [serge] fix capabilities to created user namespaces Without this, if user serge creates a user_ns, he won't have capabilities to the user_ns he created. THis is because we were first checking whether his effective caps had the caps he needed and returning -EPERM if not, and THEN checking whether he was the creator. Reverse those checks. 12/16/2010: [serge] security_real_capable needs ns argument in !security case 01/11/2011: [serge] add task_ns_capable helper 01/11/2011: [serge] add nsown_capable() helper per Bastian Blank suggestion 02/16/2011: [serge] fix a logic bug: the root user is always creator of init_user_ns, but should not always have capabilities to it! Fix the check in cap_capable(). 02/21/2011: Add the required user_ns parameter to security_capable, fixing a compile failure. 02/23/2011: Convert some macros to functions as per akpm comments. Some couldn't be converted because we can't easily forward-declare them (they are inline if !SECURITY, extern if SECURITY). Add a current_user_ns function so we can use it in capability.h without #including cred.h. Move all forward declarations together to the top of the #ifdef __KERNEL__ section, and use kernel-doc format. 02/23/2011: Per dhowells, clean up comment in cap_capable(). 02/23/2011: Per akpm, remove unreachable 'return -EPERM' in cap_capable.

Add a new keyctl op to reject a key with a specified error code. This works much the same as negating a key, and so keyctl_negate_key() is made a special case of keyctl_reject_key().

2011-03-03SELinux: implement the new sb_remount LSM hookEric Paris1-0/+86
For SELinux we do not allow security information to change during a remount operation.

2011-03-03LSM: Pass -o remount options to the LSMEric Paris2-0/+11
The VFS mount code passes the mount options to the LSM. The LSM will remove options it understands from the data and the VFS will then pass the remaining options onto the underlying filesystem. This is how options like the SELinux context= work. The problem comes in that -o remount never calls into LSM code. So if you include an LSM specific option it will get passed to the filesystem and will cause the remount to fail. An example of where this is a problem is the 'seclabel' option. The SELinux LSM hook will print this word in /proc/mounts if the filesystem is being labeled using xattrs. If you pass this word on mount it will be silently stripped and ignored. But if you pass this word on remount the LSM never gets called and it will be passed to the FS. The FS doesn't know what seclabel means and thus should fail the mount. For example an ext3 fs mounted over loop # mount -o loop /tmp/fs /mnt/tmp # cat /proc/mounts | grep /mnt/tmp /dev/loop0 /mnt/tmp ext3 rw,seclabel,relatime,errors=continue,barrier=0,data=ordered 0 0 # mount -o remount /mnt/tmp mount: /mnt/tmp not mounted already, or bad option # dmesg EXT3-fs (loop0): error: unrecognized mount option "seclabel" or missing value This patch passes the remount mount options to an new LSM hook.

The socket SID would be computed on creation and no longer inherit its creator's SID by default. Socket may have a different type but needs to retain the creator's role and MLS attribute in order not to break labeled networking and network access control.

If security_compute_sid is called from userspace the policy value for a class would be mapped to the relevant kernel value first.

2011-02-25Revert "selinux: simplify ioctl checking"Eric Paris1-8/+42
This reverts commit 242631c49d4cf39642741d6627750151b058233b. Conflicts: security/selinux/hooks.c SELinux used to recognize certain individual ioctls and check permissions based on the knowledge of the individual ioctl. In commit 242631c49d4cf396 the SELinux code stopped trying to understand individual ioctls and to instead looked at the ioctl access bits to determine in we should check read or write for that operation. This same suggestion was made to SMACK (and I believe copied into TOMOYO). But this suggestion is total rubbish. The ioctl access bits are actually the access requirements for the structure being passed into the ioctl, and are completely unrelated to the operation of the ioctl or the object the ioctl is being performed upon. Take FS_IOC_FIEMAP as an example. FS_IOC_FIEMAP is defined as: FS_IOC_FIEMAP _IOWR('f', 11, struct fiemap) So it has access bits R and W. What this really means is that the kernel is going to both read and write to the struct fiemap. It has nothing at all to do with the operations that this ioctl might perform on the file itself!

So these flags are not a good indicator for packet forwarding. A better indicator is the incoming interface. If we have no socket context, but an incoming interface and we see the packet in the ip postroute hook, the packet is going to be forwarded.

2011-02-23ima: remove unnecessary call to ima_must_measureMimi Zohar3-15/+7
The original ima_must_measure() function based its results on cached iint information, which required an iint be allocated for all files. Currently, an iint is allocated only for files in policy. As a result, for those files in policy, ima_must_measure() is now called twice: once to determine if the inode is in the measurement policy and, the second time, to determine if it needs to be measured/re-measured. The second call to ima_must_measure() unnecessarily checks to see if the file is in policy. As we already know the file is in policy, this patch removes the second unnecessary call to ima_must_measure(), removes the vestige iint parameter, and just checks the iint directly to determine if the inode has been measured or needs to be measured/re-measured.

2011-02-07CRED: Fix BUG() upon security_cred_alloc_blank() failureTetsuo Handa1-1/+5
In cred_alloc_blank() since 2.6.32, abort_creds(new) is called with new->security == NULL and new->magic == 0 when security_cred_alloc_blank() returns an error. As a result, BUG() will be triggered if SELinux is enabled or CONFIG_DEBUG_CREDENTIALS=y. If CONFIG_DEBUG_CREDENTIALS=y, BUG() is called from __invalid_creds() because cred->magic == 0. Failing that, BUG() is called from selinux_cred_free() because selinux_cred_free() is not expecting cred->security == NULL. This does not affect smack_cred_free(), tomoyo_cred_free() or apparmor_cred_free(). Fix these bugs by (1) Set new->magic before calling security_cred_alloc_blank().

2011-02-01security/selinux: fix /proc/sys/ labelingLucian Adrian Grijincu1-102/+18
This fixes an old (2007) selinux regression: filesystem labeling for /proc/sys returned -r--r--r-- unknown /proc/sys/fs/file-nr instead of -r--r--r-- system_u:object_r:sysctl_fs_t:s0 /proc/sys/fs/file-nr Events that lead to breaking of /proc/sys/ selinux labeling: 1) sysctl was reimplemented to route all calls through /proc/sys/ commit 77b14db502cb85a031fe8fde6c85d52f3e0acb63 [PATCH] sysctl: reimplement the sysctl proc support 2) proc_dir_entry was removed from ctl_table: commit 3fbfa98112fc3962c416452a0baf2214381030e6 [PATCH] sysctl: remove the proc_dir_entry member for the sysctl tables 3) selinux still walked the proc_dir_entry tree to apply labeling. Because ctl_tables don't have a proc_dir_entry, we did not label /proc/sys/ inodes any more. To achieve this the /proc/sys/ inodes were marked private and private inodes were ignored by selinux. commit bbaca6c2e7ef0f663bc31be4dad7cf530f6c4962 [PATCH] selinux: enhance selinux to always ignore private inodes commit 86a71dbd3e81e8870d0f0e56b87875f57e58222b [PATCH] sysctl: hide the sysctl proc inodes from selinux Access control checks have been done by means of a special sysctl hook that was called for read/write accesses to any /proc/sys/ entry. We don't have to do this because, instead of walking the proc_dir_entry tree we can walk the dentry tree (as done in this patch). With this patch: * we don't mark /proc/sys/ inodes as private * we don't need the sysclt security hook * we walk the dentry tree to find the path to the inode. We have to strip the PID in /proc/PID/ entries that have a proc_dir_entry because selinux does not know how to label paths like '/1/net/rpc/nfsd.fh' (and defaults to 'proc_t' labeling). Selinux does know of '/net/rpc/nfsd.fh' (and applies the 'sysctl_rpc_t' label). PID stripping from the path was done implicitly in the previous code because the proc_dir_entry tree had the root in '/net' in the example from above. The dentry tree has the root in '/1'.

2011-02-01SELinux: Use dentry name in new object labelingEric Paris6-37/+197
Currently SELinux has rules which label new objects according to 3 criteria. The label of the process creating the object, the label of the parent directory, and the type of object (reg, dir, char, block, etc.) This patch adds a 4th criteria, the dentry name, thus we can distinguish between creating a file in an etc_t directory called shadow and one called motd. There is no file globbing, regex parsing, or anything mystical. Either the policy exactly (strcmp) matches the dentry name of the object or it doesn't. This patch has no changes from today if policy does not implement the new rules. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
2011-02-01fs/vfs/security: pass last path component to LSM on inode creationEric Paris4-6/+13
SELinux would like to implement a new labeling behavior of newly created inodes. We currently label new inodes based on the parent and the creating process. This new behavior would also take into account the name of the new object when deciding the new label. This is not the (supposed) full path, just the last component of the path. This is very useful because creating /etc/shadow is different than creating /etc/passwd but the kernel hooks are unable to differentiate these operations. We currently require that userspace realize it is doing some difficult operation like that and than userspace jumps through SELinux hoops to get things set up correctly. This patch does not implement new behavior, that is obviously contained in a seperate SELinux patch, but it does pass the needed name down to the correct LSM hook. If no such name exists it is fine to pass NULL. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
2011-01-26KEYS: Fix __key_link_end() quota fixup on errorDavid Howells4-20/+27
Fix __key_link_end()'s attempt to fix up the quota if an error occurs. There are two erroneous cases: Firstly, we always decrease the quota if the preallocated replacement keyring needs cleaning up, irrespective of whether or not we should (we may have replaced a pointer rather than adding another pointer). Secondly, we never clean up the quota if we added a pointer without the keyring storage being extended (we allocate multiple pointers at a time, even if we're not going to use them all immediately). We handle this by setting the bottom bit of the preallocation pointer in __key_link_begin() to indicate that the quota needs fixing up, which is then passed to __key_link() (which clears the whole thing) and __key_link_end().

One failure path in security/keys/trusted.c::trusted_update() does not free 'new_p' while the others do. This patch makes sure we also free it in the remaining path (if datablob_parse() returns different from Opt_update).
