X.509: fix BUG_ON() when hash algorithm is unsupported
The X.509 parser mishandles the case where the certificate's signature's hash algorithm is not available in the crypto API. In this case, x509_get_sig_params() doesn't allocate the cert->sig->digest buffer; this part seems to be intentional. However, public_key_verify_signature() is still called via x509_check_for_self_signed(), which triggers the 'BUG_ON(!sig->digest)'. Fix this by making public_key_verify_signature() return -ENOPKG if the hash buffer has not been allocated. Reproducer when all the CONFIG_CRYPTO_SHA512* options are disabled: openssl req -new -sha512 -x509 -batch -nodes -outform der \ | keyctl padd asymmetric desc @s Fixes: 6c2dc5ae4ab7 ("X.509: Extract signature digest and make self-signed cert checks earlier") Reported-by: Paolo Valente <paolo.valente@linaro.org> Cc: Paolo Valente <paolo.valente@linaro.org> Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> # v4.7+ Signed-off-by: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com> Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
