Subject: [PATCH security-next v2 00/26] LSM: Explict LSM ordering
Date: Thu, 20 Sep 2018 09:23:12 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180920162338.21060-1-keescook@chromium.org> (raw)

v2:
- add "lsm.order=" and CONFIG_LSM_ORDER instead of overloading "security="
- reorganize introduction of ordering logic code

Updated cover letter:

This refactors the LSM registration and initialization infrastructure
to more centrally support different LSM types. What was considered a
"major" LSM is kept for legacy use of the "security=" boot parameter,
and now overlaps with the new class of "exclusive" LSMs for the future
blob sharing (to be added later). The "minor" LSMs become more well
defined as a result of the refactoring.

Instead of continuing to (somewhat improperly) overload the kernel's
initcall system, this changes the LSM infrastructure to store a
registration structure (struct lsm_info) table instead, where metadata
about each LSM can be recorded (name, flags, order, enable flag, init
function). This can be extended in the future to include things like
required blob size for the coming "blob sharing" LSMs.

The "major" LSMs had to individually negotiate which of them should be
enabled. This didn't provide a way to negotiate combinations of other
LSMs (as will be needed for "blob sharing" LSMs). This is solved by
providing the LSM infrastructure with all the details needed to make
the choice (exposing the per-LSM "enabled" flag, if used, the LSM
characteristics, and ordering expectations).

As a result of the refactoring, the "minor" LSMs are able to remove
the open-coded security_add_hooks() calls for "capability", "yama",
and "loadpin", and to redefine "integrity" properly as a general LSM.
(Note that "integrity" actually defined _no_ hooks, but needs the early
initialization).

With all LSMs being proessed centrally, it was possible to implement
a new boot parameter "lsm.order=" to provide explicit ordering, which
is helpful for the future "blob sharing" LSMs. Matching this is the
new CONFIG_LSM_ORDER, which replaces CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY, as it
provides a higher granularity of control.

To better show LSMs activation some debug reporting was added (enabled
with the "lsm.debug" boot commandline option).

Finally, I added a WARN() around LSM initialization failures, which
appear to have always been silently ignored. (Realistically any LSM init
failures would have only been due to catastrophic kernel issues that
would render a system unworkable anyway, but it'd be better to expose
the problem as early as possible.)
