Subject: [PATCH v1] landlock: Explain how to support Landlock
Date: Thu, 12 May 2022 14:08:47 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Let's help users by documenting how to enable and check for Landlock in
the kernel and the running system.  The userspace-api section may not be
the best place for this but it still makes sense to put all the user
documentation at the same place.

+Landlock support
+Kernel configuration
+Landlock can be supported since Linux 5.13 but it must be configured in the
+kernel with `CONFIG_SECURITY_LANDLOCK=y`, and it should be enabled at boot time
+with `CONFIG_LSM=landlock,[...]`.  The `[...]` must be replaced with the list
+of LSMs that may be useful for the running system (see the `CONFIG_LSM` help).
+Running system configuration
+If the running kernel doesn't have `landlock` in `CONFIG_LSM`, then we can
+still enable it by adding `lsm=landlock,[...]` to
+Documentation/admin-guide/kernel-parameters.rst. The `[...]` must be replaced
+with the list of LSMs that may be useful for the running system (see the
+`CONFIG_LSM` help).
+Running system check
+We can check that Landlock is enabled by looking for "landlock: Up and running"
+in kernel logs: `dmesg | grep landlock`
