Subject: [PATCH v3 1/8] security: Add LSM hook at the point where a task gets a fatal signal
Date: Sun, 21 Feb 2021 16:49:12 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210221154919.68050-2-john.wood@gmx.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210221154919.68050-1-john.wood@gmx.com>

Add a security hook that allows a LSM to be notified when a task gets a
fatal signal. This patch is a previous step on the way to compute the
task crash period by the "brute" LSM (linux security module to detect
and mitigate fork brute force attack against vulnerable userspace
processes).
