Subject: [PATCH v21 17/22] richacl: Automatic Inheritance
Date: Tue, 10 May 2016 00:02:50 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1462831375-23017-18-git-send-email-agruenba@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1462831375-23017-1-git-send-email-agruenba@redhat.com>

Automatic Inheritance (AI) allows changes to the acl of a directory to
propagate down to children.

This is mostly implemented in user space: when a process changes the
permissions of a directory and Automatic Inheritance is enabled for that
directory, the process must propagate those changes to all children,
recursively.

The kernel enables this by keeping track of which permissions have been
inherited at create time.  In addition, it makes sure that permission
propagation is turned off when the permissions are set explicitly (for
example, upon create or chmod).

Automatic Inheritance works as follows:

 - When the RICHACL_AUTO_INHERIT flag in the acl of a file or directory
   is not set, the file or directory is not affected by AI.

 - When the RICHACL_AUTO_INHERIT flag in the acl of a directory is set
   and a file or subdirectory is created in that directory, the
   inherited acl will have the RICHACL_AUTO_INHERIT flag set, and all
   inherited aces will have the RICHACE_INHERITED_ACE flag set.  This
   allows user space to distinguish between aces which have been
   inherited and aces which have been explicitly added.

 - When the RICHACL_PROTECTED acl flag in the acl of a file or directory
   is set, AI will not modify the acl.  This does not affect propagation
   of permissions from the file to its children (if the file is a
   directory).

Linux does not have a way of creating files or directories without setting the
file permission bits, so all files created inside a directory with
RICHACL_AUTO_INHERIT set will have the RICHACL_PROTECTED flag set.  This
effectively disables Automatic Inheritance.

Protocols which support creating files without specifying permissions can
explicitly clear the RICHACL_PROTECTED flag after creating a file and reset the
file masks to "undo" applying the create mode; see richacl_compute_max_masks().
They should set the RICHACL_DEFAULTED flag.  (A mechanism that would allow to
indicate to the kernel to ignore the create mode in the first place when there
are inherited permissions would be nice to have.)
