Subject: [PATCH v9 0/6] Optionally randomize kernel stack offset each syscall
Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2021 13:54:52 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210331205458.1871746-1-keescook@chromium.org> (raw)

Hi Will (and Mark and Catalin),

Can you take this via the arm64 tree for v5.13 please? Thomas has added
his Reviewed-by, so it only leaves arm64's. :)


v9:
- comment position nit (tglx)
- Added tglx's Reviewed-by

This is a continuation and refactoring of Elena's earlier effort to add
kernel stack base offset randomization. In the time since the earlier
discussions, two attacks[1][2] were made public that depended on stack
determinism, so we're no longer in the position of "this is a good idea
but we have no examples of attacks". :)

Earlier discussions also devolved into debates on entropy sources, which
is mostly a red herring, given the already low entropy available due
to stack size. Regardless, entropy can be changed/improved separately
from this series as needed.

Earlier discussions also got stuck debating how much syscall overhead
was too much, but this is also a red herring since the feature itself
needs to be selectable at boot with no cost for those that don't want it:
this is solved here with static branches.

So, here is the latest improved version, made as arch-agnostic as
possible, with usage added for x86 and arm64. It also includes some small
static branch clean ups, and addresses some surprise performance issues
due to the stack canary[3].

Thanks!
