Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] certs: Add support for using elliptic curve keys for signing modules
Date: Thu,  8 Apr 2021 11:24:03 -0400
Message-ID: <20210408152403.1189121-3-stefanb@linux.ibm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210408152403.1189121-1-stefanb@linux.ibm.com>

Add support for using elliptic curve keys for signing modules. It uses
a NIST P384 (secp384r1) key if the user chooses an elliptic curve key
and will have ECDSA support built into the kernel.

Note: A developer choosing an ECDSA key for signing modules should still
delete the signing key (rm certs/signing_key.*) when building an older
version of a kernel that only supports RSA keys. Unless kbuild automati-
cally detects and generates a new kernel module key, ECDSA-signed kernel
modules will fail signature verification.

Signed-off-by: Stefan Berger <stefanb@linux.ibm.com>

v2:
  - check for ECDSA key by id-ecPublicKey from output line
    'Public Key Algorithm: id-ecPublicKey'.
