For regular files with signatures, the file signature is verified
against the file hash, both contained within the template data.  For
the SELinux "critical-data", 
commit 2554a48f4437 ("selinux: measure state and policy capabilities")
contains that information.  Missing from this patch set is information
on how the attestation server could verify the DM critical data.

Does the DM record contain everything needed for the attestion server
to verify the template record?  Are things like the hash algorithm hard
coded?

thanks,

Mimi
