Subject: [PATCH RFC v3] random: getrandom(2): optionally block when CRNG is uninitialized
Date: Sun, 15 Sep 2019 10:17:47 +0200
Message-ID: <20190915081747.GA1058@darwi-home-pc> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190915052242.GG19710@mit.edu>

Since Linux v3.17, getrandom() has been created as a new and more
secure interface for pseudorandom data requests. It attempted to solve
three problems as compared to /dev/urandom:

  1. the need to access filesystem paths, which can fail, e.g. under a
     chroot

  2. the need to open a file descriptor, which can fail under file
     descriptor exhaustion attacks

  3. the possibility to get not-so-random data from /dev/urandom, due to
     an incompletely initialized kernel entropy pool

To solve the third problem, getrandom(2) was made to block until a
proper amount of entropy has been accumulated. This basically made the
system call have no guaranteed upper-bound for its waiting time.

As was said in c6e9d6f38894 (random: introduce getrandom(2) system
call): "Any userspace program which uses this new functionality must
take care to assure that if it is used during the boot process, that it
will not cause the init scripts or other portions of the system startup
to hang indefinitely."

Meanwhile, user-facing Linux documentation, e.g. the urandom(4) and
getrandom(2) manpages, didn't add such explicit warnings. It didn't
also help that glibc, since v2.25, implemented an "OpenBSD-like"
getentropy(3) in terms of getrandom(2).  OpenBSD getentropy(2) never
blocked though, while linux-glibc version did, possibly indefinitely.
Since that glibc change, even more applications at the boot-path began
to implicitly reques randomness through getrandom(2); e.g., for an
Xorg/Xwayland MIT cookie.

OpenBSD genentropy(2) never blocked because, as stated in its rnd(4)
manpages, it saves entropy to disk on shutdown and restores it on boot.
Moreover, the NetBSD bootloader, as shown in its boot(8), even have
special commands to load a random seed file and pass it to the kernel.
Meanwhile on a Linux systemd userland, systemd-random-seed(8) preserved
a random seed across reboots at /var/lib/systemd/random-seed, but it
never had the actual code, until very recently at v243, to ask the
kernel to credit such entropy through an RNDADDENTROPY ioctl.

From a mix of the above factors, it began to be common for Embedded
Linux systems to "get stuck at boot" unless a daemon like haveged is
installed, or the BSP provider enabling the necessary hwrng driver in
question and crediting its entropy; e.g. 62f95ae805fa (hwrng: omap - Set
default quality). Over time, the issue began to even creep into
consumer-level x86 laptops: mainstream distributions, like debian
buster, began to recommend installing haveged as a workaround.

Thus, on certain setups where there is no hwrng (embedded systems or VMs
on a host lacking virtio-rng), or the hwrng is not trusted by some users
(intel RDRAND), or sometimes it's just broken (amd RDRAND), the system
boot can be *reliably* blocked.

It can therefore be argued that there is no way to use getrandom() on
Linux correctly, especially from shared libraries: GRND_NONBLOCK has
to be used, and a fallback to some other interface like /dev/urandom
is required, thus making the net result no better than just using
/dev/urandom unconditionally.

The issue is further exaggerated by recent file-system optimizations,
e.g. b03755ad6f33 (ext4: make __ext4_get_inode_loc plug), which merges
directory lookup code inode table IO, and thus minimizes the number of
disk interrupts and entropy during boot. After that commit, a blocked
boot can be reliably reproduced on a Thinkpad E480 laptop with
standard ArchLinux user-space.

Thus, don't trust user-space on calling getrandom(2) from the right
context. Never block, by default, and just return data from the
urandom source if entropy is not yet available. This is an explicit
decision not to let user-space work around this through busy loops on
error-codes.

Note: this lowers the quality of random data returned by getrandom(2)
to the level of randomness returned by /dev/urandom, with all the
original security implications coming out of that, as discussed in
problem "3." at the top of this commit log. If this is not desirable,
offer users a fallback to old behavior, by CONFIG_RANDOM_BLOCK=y, or
random.getrandom_block=true bootparam.

Notes:
    changelog-v2:
      - tytso: make blocking optional
    
    changelog-v3:
      - more detailed commit log + historical context (thanks patrakov)
      - remove WARN_ON_ONCE. It's pretty excessive, and the first caller
        is systemd-random-seed(8), which we know it will not change.
        Just print errors in the kernel log.
