Mark Salyzyn (3):
  Add flags option to get xattr method paired to __vfs_getxattr
  overlayfs: handle XATTR_NOSECURITY flag for get xattr method
  overlayfs: override_creds=off option bypass creator_cred

Mark Salyzyn + John Stultz (1):
  overlayfs: inode_owner_or_capable called during execv

The first three patches address fundamental security issues that should
be solved regardless of the override_creds=off feature.

The fourth adds the feature depends on these other fixes.

By default, all access to the upper, lower and work directories is the
recorded mounter's MAC and DAC credentials.  The incoming accesses are
checked against the caller's credentials.

If the principles of least privilege are applied for sepolicy, the
mounter's credentials might not overlap the credentials of the caller's
when accessing the overlayfs filesystem.  For example, a file that a
lower DAC privileged caller can execute, is MAC denied to the
generally higher DAC privileged mounter, to prevent an attack vector.

We add the option to turn off override_creds in the mount options; all
subsequent operations after mount on the filesystem will be only the
caller's credentials.  The module boolean parameter and mount option
override_creds is also added as a presence check for this "feature",
existence of /sys/module/overlay/parameters/overlay_creds

v18
- rebase + fix minor cut and paste error for inode argument in __vfs_getxattr

v17
- correct some zero-day build failures.
- fix up documentation

v16
- rebase and merge of two patches.
- add adjustment to deal with execv when overrides is off.

v15
- Revert back to v4 with fixes from on the way from v5-v14. The single
  structure argument passing to address the complaints about too many
  arguments was rejected by the community.
- Drop the udner discussion fix for an additional CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH
  check. Can address that independently.
- ToDo: upstream test frame for thes security fixes (currently testing
  is all in Android).

v14:
- Rejoin, rebase and a few adjustments.

v13:
- Pull out first patch and try to get it in alone feedback, some
  Acks, and then <crickets> because people forgot why we were doing i.

v12:
- Restore squished out patch 2 and 3 in the series,
  then change algorithm to add flags argument.
  Per-thread flag is a large security surface.

v11:
- Squish out v10 introduced patch 2 and 3 in the series,
  then and use per-thread flag instead for nesting.
- Switch name to ovl_do_vds_getxattr for __vds_getxattr wrapper.
- Add sb argument to ovl_revert_creds to match future work.

v10:
- Return NULL on CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH
- Add __get xattr method to solve sepolicy logging issue
- Drop unnecessary sys_admin sepolicy checking for administrative
  driver internal xattr functions.

v6:
- Drop CONFIG_OVERLAY_FS_OVERRIDE_CREDS.
- Do better with the documentation, drop rationalizations.
- pr_warn message adjusted to report consequences.

v5:
- beefed up the caveats in the Documentation
- Is dependent on
  "overlayfs: check CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH before issuing exportfs_decode_fh"
  "overlayfs: check CAP_MKNOD before issuing vfs_whiteout"
- Added prwarn when override_creds=off

v4:
- spelling and grammar errors in text

v3:
- Change name from caller_credentials / creator_credentials to the
  boolean override_creds.
- Changed from creator to mounter credentials.
- Updated and fortified the documentation.
- Added CONFIG_OVERLAY_FS_OVERRIDE_CREDS

v2:
- Forward port changed attr to stat, resulting in a build error.
- altered commit message.

Add a flag option to get xattr method that could have a bit flag of
XATTR_NOSECURITY passed to it.  XATTR_NOSECURITY is generally then
set in the __vfs_getxattr path when called by security
infrastructure.

This handles the case of a union filesystem driver that is being
requested by the security layer to report back the xattr data.

For the use case where access is to be blocked by the security layer.

The path then could be security(dentry) ->
__vfs_getxattr(dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY) ->
handler->get(dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY) ->
__vfs_getxattr(lower_dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY) ->
lower_handler->get(lower_dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY)
which would report back through the chain data and success as
expected, the logging security layer at the top would have the
data to determine the access permissions and report back the target
context that was blocked.

Without the get handler flag, the path on a union filesystem would be
the errant security(dentry) -> __vfs_getxattr(dentry) ->
handler->get(dentry) -> vfs_getxattr(lower_dentry) -> nested ->
security(lower_dentry, log off) -> lower_handler->get(lower_dentry)
which would report back through the chain no data, and -EACCES.

For selinux for both cases, this would translate to a correctly
determined blocked access. In the first case with this change a correct avc
log would be reported, in the second legacy case an incorrect avc log
would be reported against an uninitialized u:object_r:unlabeled:s0
context making the logs cosmetically useless for audit2allow.

This patch series is inert and is the wide-spread addition of the
flags option for xattr functions, and a replacement of __vfs_getxattr
with __vfs_getxattr(...XATTR_NOSECURITY).

v18
- rebase

v17
- rebase with additional change to fs/ext4/xattr_hurd.c

v16
- rebase

v15
- revert back to v4 as struct xattr_gs_args was not acceptable by the
  wider audience. Incorporate any relevant fixes on the way.

v14 (new series):
- Reincorporate back into the bugfix series for overlayfs

v8:
- Documentation reported 'struct xattr_gs_flags' rather than
'struct xattr_gs_flags *args' as argument to get and set methods.

v7:
- missed spots in fs/9p/acl.c, fs/afs/xattr.c, fs/ecryptfs/crypto.c,
fs/ubifs/xattr.c, fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_attr.c,
security/integrity/evm/evm_main.c and security/smack/smack_lsm.c.

v6:
- kernfs missed a spot

v5:
- introduce struct xattr_gs_args for get and set methods,
__vfs_getxattr and __vfs_setxattr functions.
- cover a missing spot in ext2.
- switch from snprintf to scnprintf for correctness.

v4:
- ifdef __KERNEL__ around XATTR_NOSECURITY to
keep it colocated in uapi headers.

v3:
- poor aim on ubifs not ubifs_xattr_get, but static xattr_get

v2:
- Missed a spot: ubifs, erofs and afs.

v1:
- Removed from an overlayfs patch set, and made independent.
  Expect this to be the basis of some security improvements.

	linux-doc, selinux

Because of the overlayfs getxattr recursion, the incoming inode fails
to update the selinux sid resulting in avc denials being reported
against a target context of u:object_r:unlabeled:s0.

Solution is to respond to the XATTR_NOSECURITY flag in get xattr
method that calls the __vfs_getxattr handler instead so that the
context can be read in, rather than being denied with an -EACCES
when vfs_getxattr handler is called.

For the use case where access is to be blocked by the security layer.

The path then would be security(dentry) ->
__vfs_getxattr({dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) ->
handler->get({dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) ->
__vfs_getxattr({realdentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) ->
lower_handler->get({realdentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) which
would report back through the chain data and success as expected,
the logging security layer at the top would have the data to
determine the access permissions and report back to the logs and
the caller that the target context was blocked.

For selinux this would solve the cosmetic issue of the selinux log
and allow audit2allow to correctly report the rule needed to address
the access problem.

Check impure, opaque, origin & meta xattr with no sepolicy audit
(using __vfs_getxattr) since these operations are internal to
overlayfs operations and do not disclose any data.  This became
an issue for credential override off since sys_admin would have
been required by the caller; whereas would have been inherently
present for the creator since it performed the mount.

This is a change in operations since we do not check in the new
ovl_do_getxattr function if the credential override is off or not.
Reasoning is that the sepolicy check is unnecessary overhead,
especially since the check can be expensive.

Because for override credentials off, this affects _everyone_ that
underneath performs private xattr calls without the appropriate
sepolicy permissions and sys_admin capability.  Providing blanket
support for sys_admin would be bad for all possible callers.

For the override credentials on, this will affect only the mounter,
should it lack sepolicy permissions. Not considered a security
problem since mounting by definition has sys_admin capabilities,
but sepolicy contexts would still need to be crafted.

It should be noted that there is precedence, __vfs_getxattr is used
in other filesystems for their own internal trusted xattr management.

By default, all access to the upper, lower and work directories is the
recorded mounter's MAC and DAC credentials.  The incoming accesses are
checked against the caller's credentials.

If the principles of least privilege are applied, the mounter's
credentials might not overlap the credentials of the caller's when
accessing the overlayfs filesystem.  For example, a file that a lower
DAC privileged caller can execute, is MAC denied to the generally
higher DAC privileged mounter, to prevent an attack vector.

We add the option to turn off override_creds in the mount options; all
subsequent operations after mount on the filesystem will be only the
caller's credentials.  The module boolean parameter and mount option
override_creds is also added as a presence check for this "feature",
existence of /sys/module/overlay/parameters/override_creds.

It was not always this way.  Circa 4.6 there was no recorded mounter's
credentials, instead privileged access to upper or work directories
were temporarily increased to perform the operations.  The MAC
(selinux) policies were caller's in all cases.  override_creds=off
partially returns us to this older access model minus the insecure
temporary credential increases.  This is to permit use in a system
with non-overlapping security models for each executable including
the agent that mounts the overlayfs filesystem.  In Android
this is the case since init, which performs the mount operations,
has a minimal MAC set of privileges to reduce any attack surface,
and services that use the content have a different set of MAC
privileges (eg: read, for vendor labelled configuration, execute for
vendor libraries and modules).  The caveats are not a problem in
the Android usage model, however they should be fixed for
completeness and for general use in time.

 The resulting access permissions should be the same.  The difference is in
 the time of copy (on-demand vs. up-front).
 
+### Non overlapping credentials
+
+As noted above, all access to the upper, lower and work directories is the
+recorded mounter's MAC and DAC credentials.  The incoming accesses are
+checked against the caller's credentials.
+
+In the case where caller MAC or DAC credentials do not overlap the mounter, a
+use case available in older versions of the driver, the override_creds mount
+flag can be turned off.  For when the use pattern has caller with legitimate
+credentials where the mounter does not.  For example init may have been the
+mounter, but the caller would have execute or read MAC permissions where
+init would not.  override_creds off means all access, incoming, upper, lower
+or working, will be tested against the caller.
+
+Several unintended side effects will occur though.  The caller without certain
+key capabilities or lower privilege will not always be able to delete files or
+directories, create nodes, or search some restricted directories.  The ability
+to search and read a directory entry is spotty as a result of the cache
+mechanism not re-testing the credentials because of the assumption, a
+privileged caller can fill cache, then a lower privilege can read the directory
+cache.  The uneven security model where cache, upperdir and workdir are opened
+at privilege, but accessed without creating a form of privilege escalation,
+should only be used with strict understanding of the side effects and of the
+security policies.

FYI, I didn't receive patch 4, and neither https://lkml.kernel.org/linux-fsdevel
nor https://lkml.kernel.org/linux-unionfs have it either.

This would be a problem when unprivileged mounting of overlay is
introduced.  I'd really like to avoid weakening the current security
model.

The big API churn in the 1/4 patch also seems excessive considering
that this seems to be mostly a cosmetic issue for android.  Am I
missing something?

Thanks,

The current security model does not deal with non-overlapping security 
contexts between init (which on android has MAC permissions only when 
necessary, only enough permissions to perform the mount and other 
mundane operations, missing exec and read permissions in key spots) and 
user calls.

We are only weakening (that is actually an incorrect statement, security 
is there, just not double security of both mounter and caller) the 
security around calls that retrieve the xattr for administrative and 
internal purposes. No data is exposed to the caller that it would not 
otherwise have permissions for.

This patch becomes necessary when matched with the PATCH v18 3/4 of the 
series which fixes the user space break introduced in ~4.6 that formerly 
used the callers credentials for all accesses in all places. Security is 
weakened already as-is in overlayfs with all the overriding of the 
credentials for internal accesses to overlayfs mechanics based on the 
mounter credentials. Using the mounter credentials as a wider security 
hole is the problem, at least with PATCH v18 3/4 of the series we go 
back optionally to only using the caller's credentials to perform the 
operations. Admittedly some of the internal operations like mknod are 
privileged, but at least in Android's use case we are not using them 
with callers without the necessary credentials.

Android does not give the mounter more credentials than the callers, 
there is very little overlap in the MAC security.

Breaks sepolicy, it no longer has access to the context data at the 
overlayfs security boundary.

unknown is a symptom of being denied based on the denial to xattr data 
from the underlying filesystem layer. Being denied the security context 
of the target is not a good thing within the sepolicy security layer.

We've ran into the same issues that Mark is trying to solve with this
series. I came across Mark's series while searching around before I
wrote up a similar patch to Mark's patch #3.

We have a confined process that sets up Overlayfs mounts, then that process
starts a service confined by another security context, then that service
may execute binaries that run under a third security context. In this
case, I'm talking about SELinux security contexts but it could be
AppArmor or anything else that you use to separate out
privileges/permissions at fine-grained detail.

We don't want to grant all the privileges/permissions required by the
service (and its helper utilities) to the process that sets up the
Overlayfs mounts because we've been very careful in separating them
apart with security policy. However, we want to make use of Overlayfs
and adding a mount option to bypass the check on the mounter's cred
seems like a safe way of using Overlayfs without violating our principle
of least privilege.

I just realized that I missed one noteworthy aspect of our use case. We
would be alright if this functionality to bypass the mounter's cred
checks (conditional, based on a mount option) was only allowed for
read-only overlays[1].

I'm not sure if that would meet the needs of Android. Can you comment on
that, Mark?

Miklos, would that restriction make this series any more acceptable to
you?

Thanks!
