Subject: [PATCH RFC v4 1/1] random: WARN on large getrandom() waits and introduce getrandom2()
Date: Wed, 18 Sep 2019 23:17:13 +0200
Message-ID: <20190918211713.GA2225@darwi-home-pc> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190918211503.GA1808@darwi-home-pc>

Since Linux v3.17, getrandom(2) 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 of getting not-so-random data from /dev/urandom,
     due to an incompletely initialized kernel entropy pool

To solve the third point, getrandom(2) was made to block until a
proper amount of entropy has been accumulated to initialize the
CHACHA20 cipher.  This basically made the system call have no
guaranteed upper-bound for its initial waiting time.

Thus when it was introduced at c6e9d6f38894 ("random: introduce
getrandom(2) system call"), it came with a clear warning: "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."

Unfortunately, due to multiple factors, including not having this
warning written in a scary-enough language in the manpages, and due to
glibc since v2.25 implementing a BSD-like getentropy(3) in terms of
getrandom(2), modern user-space is calling getrandom(2) in the boot
path everywhere.

Embedded Linux systems were first hit by this, and reports of embedded
systems "getting stuck at boot" began to be common.  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 duct-tape workaround... just to let the system boot. (!)

Moreover, filesystem optimizations in EXT4 and XFS, e.g. b03755ad6f33
("ext4: make __ext4_get_inode_loc plug"), which merged directory
lookup code inode table IO, and very fast systemd boots, further
exaggerated the problem by limiting interrupt-based entropy sources.
This led to large delays until the kernel's cryptographic random
number generator (CRNG) got initialized.

Mitigate the problem, as a first step, in two ways:

  1. Issue a big WARN_ON when any process gets stuck on getrandom(2)
     for more than CONFIG_GETRANDOM_WAIT_THRESHOLD_SEC seconds.

  2. Introduce the new getrandom2(2) system call, with clear semantics
     that can guide user-space in doing the right thing.

On the author's Thinkpad E480 x86 laptop and an ArchLinux user-space,
the ext4 commit earlier mentioned reliably blocked the system on GDM
gnome-session boot. Complain loudly through a WARN_ON if processes
get stuck on getrandom(2). Beside its obvious informational purposes,
the WARN_ON also reliably gets the system unstuck.

Set CONFIG_GETRANDOM_WAIT_THRESHOLD_SEC to a heuristic 30-second
default value. We __deeply encourage__ system integrators and
distribution builders not to increase it much: during system boot, you
either have entropy, or you don't. And if you didn't have entropy, it
will stay like this forever, because if you had, you wouldn't have
blocked in the first place. It's an atomic "either/or" situation, with
no middle ground. Please think twice.

For the new getrandom2(2) system call, it tries to avoid the problems
introduced by its earlier siblings. As Linus mentioned several times
in the bug report thread, Linux should have never provided the
"/dev/random" and "getrandom(GRND_RANDOM)" APIs. These interfaces are
broken by design due to their almost-permanent blockage, leading to
the current misuse of /dev/urandom and getrandom(flags=0) calls. Thus
for getrandom2, introduce the flags:

  1. GRND2_SECURE_UNBOUNDED_INITIAL_WAIT
  2. GRND2_INSECURE

where both extract randomness __exclusively__ from the urandom source.
Due to the clear nature of its new GRND2_* flags, the getrandom2()
system call will never issue any warnings on the kernel log.

OpenBSD, to its credit, got that correctly from the start by making
both of /dev/random and /dev/urandom equivalent.

+	  The getrandom(2) system call, when asking for entropy from the

+
+	  Filesystem optimizations in EXT4 and XFS exagerated the
+	  problem, due to aggressive batching of IO requests, and thus
+	  minimizing sources of entropy at boot. This led to large
+	  delays until the kernel's CRNG got initialized.
+
+	  System integrators and distribution builderss are not

+	  had, you wouldn't have blocked in the first place. It's an

+
+	  Ideally, systems would be configured with hardware random
+	  number generators, and/or configured to trust the CPU-provided
+	  RNG's (CONFIG_RANDOM_TRUST_CPU) or boot-loader provided ones
+	  (CONFIG_RANDOM_TRUST_BOOTLOADER).  In addition, userspace
+	  should generate cryptographic keys only as late as possible,
+	  when they are needed, instead of during early boot.  For
+	  non-cryptographic use cases, such as dictionary seeds or MIT
+	  Magic Cookies, the getrandom2(GRND2_INSECURE) system call,
+	  or even random(3), may be more appropropriate.
