Subject: IMA running as a Kernel module against TPM 2.0 driver

Hi folks,

Im stumped with some issues with getting IMA to talk to the TPM interface driver, and was hoping you guys could help me out.

I am building IMA as an out-of-tree Kernel module. We are based off CentOS v7.3 which is still sitting at the Linux v3.10 baseline (sad I know!). Everything seems to be fine but when I load the IMA module, it cannot seem to do a PCR read from the TPM driver:

2017-09-11T19:06:47.438 controller-1 kernel: info [  228.152893] ima: No TPM chip found, activating TPM-bypass! (rc=-19)


We also had to build TPM as an out-of-tree Kernel module, since we had to use the in-Kernel TPM resource manager which was unavailable till Jan 2017. TPM driver is loaded and operational:

2017-09-11T19:03:07.818 controller-1 kernel: info [    5.929071] tpm_tis MSFT0101:00: 2.0 TPM (device-id 0x1A, rev-id 16)



controller-1:~$ sudo lsmod | grep ima
ima                    47169  0
integrity               6430  1 ima


controller-1:~$ sudo lsmod | grep tpm
tpm_crb                 6458  0
tpm_tis                 5950  0
tpm_tis_core           10054  1 tpm_tis
tpm                    48093  3 tpm_crb,tpm_tis,tpm_tis_core


I've tracked down the failure to the tpm_pcr_read() in tpm-interface.c, this was added as an interface to integrity:

commit 659aaf2bb5496a425ba14036b5b5900f593e4484
Author: Rajiv Andrade <srajiv-23VcF4HTsmIX0ybBhKVfKdBPR1lH4CV8@public.gmane.org<mailto:srajiv-23VcF4HTsmI+71yUvRxsjw@public.gmane.orgbm.com>>

    TPM: integrity interface

    This patch adds internal kernel support for:
     - reading/extending a pcr value
     - looking up the tpm_chip for a given chip number

The comment above the function implies that it cannot be executed if TPM is built as a Kernel module?

"The TPM driver should be built-in, but for whatever reason it
* isn't, protect against the chip disappearing, by incrementing
* the module usage count."


Is this understanding correct? If so then how do I get the IMA Kernel module to do a Kernel PCR read?


Any help you guys can offer me would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Kam


P.S: I don't see a /sys/devices/pnp0/<pnp#>/pcrs file on my system although TSS2 commands seem to indicate that the PCR list is active
