2011-06-17KEYS/DNS: Fix ____call_usermodehelper() to not lose the session keyringDavid Howells
____call_usermodehelper() now erases any credentials set by the subprocess_inf::init() function. The problem is that commit 17f60a7da150 ("capabilites: allow the application of capability limits to usermode helpers") creates and commits new credentials with prepare_kernel_cred() after the call to the init() function. This wipes all keyrings after umh_keys_init() is called. The best way to deal with this is to put the init() call just prior to the commit_creds() call, and pass the cred pointer to init(). That means that umh_keys_init() and suchlike can modify the credentials _before_ they are published and potentially in use by the rest of the system. This prevents request_key() from working as it is prevented from passing the session keyring it set up with the authorisation token to /sbin/request-key, and so the latter can't assume the authority to instantiate the key. This causes the in-kernel DNS resolver to fail with ENOKEY unconditionally.

2011-06-08selinux: simplify and clean up inode_has_perm()Linus Torvalds
This is a rather hot function that is called with a potentially NULL "struct common_audit_data" pointer argument. And in that case it has to provide and initialize its own dummy common_audit_data structure. However, all the _common_ cases already pass it a real audit-data structure, so that uncommon NULL case not only creates a silly run-time test, more importantly it causes that function to have a big stack frame for the dummy variable that isn't even used in the common case! So get rid of that stupid run-time behavior, and make the (few) functions that currently call with a NULL pointer just call a new helper function instead (naturally called inode_has_perm_noapd(), since it has no adp argument). This makes the run-time test be a static code generation issue instead, and allows for a much denser stack since none of the common callers need the dummy structure. And a denser stack not only means less stack space usage, it means better cache behavior. So we have a win-win-win from this simplification: less code executed, smaller stack footprint, and better cache behavior. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2011-06-01AppArmor: fix oops in apparmor_setprocattrKees Cook
When invalid parameters are passed to apparmor_setprocattr a NULL deref oops occurs when it tries to record an audit message. This is because it is passing NULL for the profile parameter for aa_audit. But aa_audit now requires that the profile passed is not NULL.

2011-05-26selinux: don't pass in NULL avd to avc_has_perm_noauditLinus Torvalds
Right now security_get_user_sids() will pass in a NULL avd pointer to avc_has_perm_noaudit(), which then forces that function to have a dummy entry for that case and just generally test it. Don't do it. The normal callers all pass a real avd pointer, and this helper function is incredibly hot. So don't make avc_has_perm_noaudit() do conditional stuff that isn't needed for the common case. This also avoids some duplicated stack space.

2011-05-26cgroups: add per-thread subsystem callbacksBen Blum
Add cgroup subsystem callbacks for per-thread attachment in atomic contexts Add can_attach_task(), pre_attach(), and attach_task() as new callbacks for cgroups's subsystem interface. Unlike can_attach and attach, these are for per-thread operations, to be called potentially many times when attaching an entire threadgroup. Also, the old "bool threadgroup" interface is removed, as replaced by this. All subsystems are modified for the new interface - of note is cpuset, which requires from/to nodemasks for attach to be globally scoped (though per-cpuset would work too) to persist from its pre_attach to attach_task and attach. This is a pre-patch for cgroup-procs-writable.patch. Signed-off-by: Ben Blum <bblum@andrew.cmu.edu> Cc: "Eric W.

2011-05-26selinux: fix case of names with whitespace/multibytes on /selinux/createKohei Kaigai
I submit the patch again, according to patch submission convension. This patch enables to accept percent-encoded object names as forth argument of /selinux/create interface to avoid possible bugs when we give an object name including whitespace or multibutes. E.g) if and when a userspace object manager tries to create a new object named as "resolve.conf but fake", it shall give this name as the forth argument of the /selinux/create. But sscanf() logic in kernel space fetches only the part earlier than the first whitespace. In this case, selinux may unexpectedly answer a default security context configured to "resolve.conf", but it is bug. Although I could not test this patch on named TYPE_TRANSITION rules actually, But debug printk() message seems to me the logic works correctly. I assume the libselinux provides an interface to apply this logic transparently, so nothing shall not be changed from the viewpoint of application.

2011-05-19selinux: avoid unnecessary avc cache stat hit countLinus Torvalds

2011-05-19selinux: de-crapify avc cache stat code generationLinus Torvalds
You can turn off the avc cache stats, but distributions seem to not do that (perhaps because several performance tuning how-to's talk about the avc cache statistics). Which is sad, because the code it generates is truly horrendous, with the statistics update being sandwitched between get_cpu/put_cpu which in turn causes preemption disables etc. We're talking ten+ instructions just to increment a per-cpu variable in some pretty hot code. Fix the craziness by just using 'this_cpu_inc()' instead. Suddenly we only need a single 'inc' instruction to increment the statistics. This is quite noticeable in the incredibly hot avc_has_perm_noaudit() function (which triggers all the statistics by virtue of doing an avc_lookup() call).

2011-04-25SELINUX: Make selinux cache VFS RCU walks safeEric Paris
Now that the security modules can decide whether they support the dcache RCU walk or not it's possible to make selinux a bit more RCU friendly. The SELinux AVC and security server access decision code is RCU safe. A specific piece of the LSM audit code may not be RCU safe. This patch makes the VFS RCU walk retry if it would hit the non RCU safe chunk of code. It will normally just work under RCU. This is done simply by passing the VFS RCU state as a flag down into the avc_audit() code and returning ECHILD there if it would have an issue.

2011-04-25LSM: split LSM_AUDIT_DATA_FS into _PATH and _INODEEric Paris
The lsm common audit code has wacky contortions making sure which pieces of information are set based on if it was given a path, dentry, or inode. Split this into path and inode to get rid of some of the code complexity. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Acked-by: Casey Schaufler <casey@schaufler-ca.com>
2011-04-25SELINUX: Make selinux cache VFS RCU walks safeEric Paris
Now that the security modules can decide whether they support the dcache RCU walk or not it's possible to make selinux a bit more RCU friendly. The SELinux AVC and security server access decision code is RCU safe. A specific piece of the LSM audit code may not be RCU safe. This patch makes the VFS RCU walk retry if it would hit the non RCU safe chunk of code. It will normally just work under RCU. This is done simply by passing the VFS RCU state as a flag down into the avc_audit() code and returning ECHILD there if it would have an issue.

2011-04-25SECURITY: Move exec_permission RCU checks into security modulesAndi Kleen
Right now all RCU walks fall back to reference walk when CONFIG_SECURITY is enabled, even though just the standard capability module is active. This is because security_inode_exec_permission unconditionally fails RCU walks. Move this decision to the low level security module. This requires passing the RCU flags down the security hook. This way at least the capability module and a few easy cases in selinux/smack work with RCU walks with CONFIG_SECURITY=y Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
2011-04-25SELinux: security_read_policy should take a size_t not ssize_tEric Paris
The len should be an size_t but is a ssize_t. Easy enough fix to silence build warnings. We have no need for signed-ness. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>
2011-04-25SELinux: silence build warning when !CONFIG_BUGEric Paris
If one builds a kernel without CONFIG_BUG there are a number of 'may be used uninitialized' warnings. Silence these by returning after the BUG(). Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>
