Subject: [RFC PATCH v3 1/3] block: add basic hardware-wrapped key support
Date: Thu, 21 Oct 2021 11:16:06 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Eric Biggers <>

To prevent keys from being compromised if an attacker acquires read
access to kernel memory, some inline encryption hardware can accept keys
which are wrapped by a per-boot hardware-internal key.  This avoids
needing to keep the plaintext keys in kernel memory, without restricting
the number of keys that can be used.  Such keys can be initially
generated either by software (in which case they must be imported to
hardware to be wrapped) or directly by the hardware.  There is also a
mechanism to derive a "software secret" for cryptographic tasks that
can't be handled by inline encryption.

To support this hardware, allow struct blk_crypto_key to represent a
hardware-wrapped key as an alternative to a standard key, and make
drivers set flags in struct blk_crypto_profile to indicate which types
of keys they support.  Also add the derive_sw_secret() low-level
operation, which drivers supporting wrapped keys must implement.

For more information, see the detailed documentation which this patch
adds to Documentation/block/inline-encryption.rst.

+Hardware-wrapped keys
+Motivation and threat model
+Linux storage encryption (dm-crypt, fscrypt, eCryptfs, etc.) traditionally
+relies on the raw encryption key(s) being present in kernel memory so that the
+encryption can be performed.  This traditionally isn't seen as a problem because
+the key(s) won't be present during an offline attack, which is the main type of
+attack that storage encryption is intended to protect from.
+However, there is an increasing desire to also protect users' data from other
+types of attacks (to the extent possible), including:
+- Cold boot attacks, where an attacker with physical access to a system suddenly
+  powers it off, then immediately dumps the system memory to extract recently
+  in-use encryption keys, then uses these keys to decrypt user data on-disk.
+- Online attacks where the attacker is able to read kernel memory without fully
+  compromising the system, followed by an offline attack where any extracted
+  keys can be used to decrypt user data on-disk.  An example of such an online
+  attack would be if the attacker is able to run some code on the system that
+  exploits a Meltdown-like vulnerability but is unable to escalate privileges.
+- Online attacks where the attacker fully compromises the system, but their data
+  exfiltration is significantly time-limited and/or bandwidth-limited, so in
+  order to completely exfiltrate the data they need to extract the encryption
+  keys to use in a later offline attack.
+Hardware-wrapped keys are a feature of inline encryption hardware that is
+designed to protect users' data from the above attacks (to the extent possible),
+without introducing limitations such as a maximum number of keys.
+Note that it is impossible to **fully** protect users' data from these attacks.
+Even in the attacks where the attacker "just" gets read access to kernel memory,
+they can still extract any user data that is present in memory, including
+plaintext pagecache pages of encrypted files.  The focus here is just on
+protecting the encryption keys, as those instantly give access to **all** user
+data in any following offline attack, rather than just some of it (where which
+data is included in that "some" might not be controlled by the attacker).
+Solution overview
+Inline encryption hardware typically has "keyslots" into which software can
+program keys for the hardware to use; the contents of keyslots typically can't
+be read back by software.  As such, the above security goals could be achieved
+if the kernel simply erased its copy of the key(s) after programming them into
+keyslot(s) and thereafter only referred to them via keyslot number.
+However, that naive approach runs into the problem that it limits the number of
+unlocked keys to the number of keyslots, which typically is a small number.  In
+cases where there is only one encryption key system-wide (e.g., a full-disk
+encryption key), that can be tolerable.  However, in general there can be many
+logged-in users with many different keys, and/or many running applications with
+application-specific encrypted storage areas.  This is especially true if
+file-based encryption (e.g. fscrypt) is being used.
+Thus, it is important for the kernel to still have a way to "remind" the
+hardware about a key, without actually having the raw key itself.  This would
+ensure that the number of hardware keyslots only limits the number of active I/O
+requests, not other things such as the number of logged-in users, the number of
+running apps, or the number of encrypted storage areas that apps can create.
+Somewhat less importantly, it is also desirable that the raw keys are never
+visible to software at all, even while being initially unlocked.  This would
+ensure that a read-only compromise of system memory will never allow a key to be
+extracted to be used off-system, even if it occurs when a key is being unlocked.
+To solve all these problems, some vendors of inline encryption hardware have
+made their hardware support *hardware-wrapped keys*.  Hardware-wrapped keys
+are encrypted keys that can only be unwrapped (decrypted) and used by hardware
+-- either by the inline encryption hardware itself, or by a dedicated hardware
+block that can directly provision keys to the inline encryption hardware.
+(We refer to them as "hardware-wrapped keys" rather than simply "wrapped keys"
+to add some clarity in cases where there could be other types of wrapped keys,
+such as in file-based encryption.  Key wrapping is a commonly used technique.)
+The key which wraps (encrypts) hardware-wrapped keys is a hardware-internal key
+that is never exposed to software; it is either a persistent key (a "long-term
+wrapping key") or a per-boot key (an "ephemeral wrapping key").  The long-term
+wrapped form of the key is what is initially unlocked, but it is discarded as
+soon as it is converted into an ephemerally-wrapped key.  In-use
+hardware-wrapped keys are always ephemerally-wrapped, not long-term wrapped.
+As inline encryption hardware can only be used to encrypt/decrypt data on-disk,
+the hardware also includes a level of indirection; it doesn't use the unwrapped
+key directly for inline encryption, but rather derives both an inline encryption
+key and a "software secret" from it.  Software can use the "software secret" for
+tasks that can't use the inline encryption hardware, such as filenames
+encryption.  The software secret is not protected from memory compromise.
+Key hierarchy
+Here is the key hierarchy for a hardware-wrapped key::
+                       Hardware-wrapped key
+                                |
+                                |
+                          <Hardware KDF>
+                                |
+                  -----------------------------
+                  |                           |
+        Inline encryption key           Software secret
+The components are:
+- *Hardware-wrapped key*: a key for the hardware's KDF (Key Derivation
+  Function), in ephemerally-wrapped form.  The key wrapping algorithm is a
+  hardware implementation detail that doesn't impact kernel operation, but a
+  strong authenticated encryption algorithm such as AES-256-GCM is recommended.
+- *Hardware KDF*: a KDF (Key Derivation Function) which the hardware uses to
+  derive subkeys after unwrapping the wrapped key.  The hardware's choice of KDF
+  doesn't impact kernel operation, but it does need to be known for testing
+  purposes, and it's also assumed to have at least a 256-bit security strength.
+  All known hardware uses the SP800-108 KDF in Counter Mode with AES-256-CMAC,
+  with a particular choice of labels and contexts; new hardware should use this
+  already-vetted KDF.
+- *Inline encryption key*: a derived key which the hardware directly provisions
+  to a keyslot of the inline encryption hardware, without exposing it to
+  software.  In all known hardware, this will always be an AES-256-XTS key.
+  However, in principle other encryption algorithms could be supported too.
+  Hardware must derive distinct subkeys for each supported encryption algorithm.
+- *Software secret*: a derived key which the hardware returns to software so
+  that software can use it for cryptographic tasks that can't use inline
+  encryption.  This value is cryptographically isolated from the inline
+  encryption key, i.e. knowing one doesn't reveal the other.  (The KDF ensures
+  this.)  Currently, the software secret is always 32 bytes and thus is suitable
+  for cryptographic applications that require up to a 256-bit security strength.
+  Some use cases (e.g. full-disk encryption) won't require the software secret.
+Example: in the case of fscrypt, the fscrypt master key (the key used to unlock
+a particular set of encrypted directories) is made hardware-wrapped.  The inline
+encryption key is used as the file contents encryption key, while the software
+secret (rather than the master key directly) is used to key fscrypt's KDF
+(HKDF-SHA512) to derive other subkeys such as filenames encryption keys.
+Note that currently this design assumes a single inline encryption key per
+hardware-wrapped key, without any further key derivation.  Thus, in the case of
+fscrypt, currently hardware-wrapped keys are only compatible with the "inline
+encryption optimized" settings, which use one file contents encryption key per
+encryption policy rather than one per file.  This design could be extended to
+make the hardware derive per-file keys using per-file nonces passed down the
+storage stack, and in fact some hardware already supports this; future work is
+planned to remove this limitation by adding the corresponding kernel support.
+Kernel support
+The inline encryption support of the kernel's block layer ("blk-crypto") has
+been extended to support hardware-wrapped keys as an alternative to standard
+keys, when hardware support is available.  This works in the following way:
+- A ``key_types_supported`` field is added to the crypto capabilities in
+  ``struct blk_crypto_profile``.  This allows device drivers to declare that
+  they support standard keys, hardware-wrapped keys, or both.
+- ``struct blk_crypto_key`` can now contain a hardware-wrapped key as an
+  alternative to a standard key; a ``key_type`` field is added to
+  ``struct blk_crypto_config`` to distinguish between the different key types.
+  This allows users of blk-crypto to en/decrypt data using a hardware-wrapped
+  key in a way very similar to using a standard key.
+- A new method ``blk_crypto_ll_ops::derive_sw_secret`` is added.  Device drivers
+  that support hardware-wrapped keys must implement this method.  Users of
+  blk-crypto can call ``blk_crypto_derive_sw_secret()`` to access this method.
+- The programming and eviction of hardware-wrapped keys happens via
+  ``blk_crypto_ll_ops::keyslot_program`` and
+  ``blk_crypto_ll_ops::keyslot_evict``, just like it does for standard keys.  If
+  a driver supports hardware-wrapped keys, then it must handle hardware-wrapped
+  keys being passed to these methods.
+blk-crypto-fallback doesn't support hardware-wrapped keys.  Therefore,
+hardware-wrapped keys can only be used with actual inline encryption hardware.
+Currently, the kernel only works with hardware-wrapped keys in
+ephemerally-wrapped form.  No generic kernel interfaces are provided for
+generating or importing hardware-wrapped keys in the first place, or converting
+them to ephemerally-wrapped form.  In Android, SoC vendors are required to
+support these operations in their KeyMint implementation (a hardware abstraction
+layer in userspace); for details, see the `Android documentation
+Both the hardware KDF and the inline encryption itself are well-defined
+algorithms that don't depend on any secrets other than the unwrapped key.
+Therefore, if the unwrapped key is known to software, these algorithms can be
+reproduced in software in order to verify the ciphertext that is written to disk
+by the inline encryption hardware.
+However, the unwrapped key will only be known to software for testing if the
+"import" functionality is used.  Proper testing is not possible in the
+"generate" case where the hardware generates the key itself.  The correct
+operation of the "generate" mode thus relies on the security and correctness of
+the hardware RNG and its use to generate the key, as well as the testing of the
+"import" mode as that should cover all parts other than the key generation.
+For an example of a test that verifies the ciphertext written to disk in the
+"import" mode, see `Android's vts_kernel_encryption_test
