2014-07-22KEYS: struct key_preparsed_payload should have two payload pointersDavid Howells
struct key_preparsed_payload should have two payload pointers to correspond with those in struct key. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Acked-by: Steve Dickson <steved@redhat.com> Acked-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@primarydata.com> Reviewed-by: Sage Weil <sage@redhat.com>
2014-07-18KEYS: Provide a generic instantiation functionDavid Howells
Provide a generic instantiation function for key types that use the preparse hook. This makes it easier to prereserve key quota before keyrings get locked to retain the new key.

2014-07-17KEYS: validate certificate trust only with selected keyDmitry Kasatkin
Instead of allowing public keys, with certificates signed by any key on the system trusted keyring, to be added to a trusted keyring, this patch further restricts the certificates to those signed by a particular key on the system keyring. This patch defines a new kernel parameter 'ca_keys' to identify the specific key which must be used for trust validation of certificates. Simplified Mimi's "KEYS: define an owner trusted keyring" patch. Changelog: - support for builtin x509 public keys only - export "asymmetric_keyid_match" - remove ifndefs MODULE - rename kernel boot parameter from keys_ownerid to ca_keys Signed-off-by: Dmitry Kasatkin <d.kasatkin@samsung.com> Signed-off-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2014-07-17KEYS: make partial key id matching as a dedicated functionDmitry Kasatkin
To avoid code duplication this patch refactors asymmetric_key_match(), making partial ID string match a separate function. This patch also implicitly fixes a bug in the code. asymmetric_key_match() allows to match the key by its subtype. But subtype matching could be undone if asymmetric_key_id(key) would return NULL. This patch first checks for matching spec and then for its value. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Kasatkin <d.kasatkin@samsung.com> Signed-off-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2013-09-25KEYS: Set the asymmetric-key type default search methodDavid Howells
The keyring expansion patches introduces a new search method by which key_search() attempts to walk directly to the key that has exactly the same description as the requested one. However, this causes inexact matching of asymmetric keys to fail. The solution to this is to select iterative rather than direct search as the default search type for asymmetric keys. As an example, the kernel might have a key like this: Magrathea: Glacier signing key: 6a2a0f82bad7e396665f465e4e3e1f9bd24b1226 and: keyctl search <keyring-ID> asymmetric id:d24b1226 should find the key, despite that not being its exact description.

2012-10-08KEYS: Asymmetric key pluggable data parsersDavid Howells
The instantiation data passed to the asymmetric key type are expected to be formatted in some way, and there are several possible standard ways to format the data. The two obvious standards are OpenPGP keys and X.509 certificates. The latter is especially useful when dealing with UEFI, and the former might be useful when dealing with, say, eCryptfs. Further, it might be desirable to provide formatted blobs that indicate hardware is to be accessed to retrieve the keys or that the keys live unretrievably in a hardware store, but that the keys can be used by means of the hardware. From userspace, the keys can be loaded using the keyctl command, for example, an X.509 binary certificate: keyctl padd asymmetric foo @s <dhowells.pem or a PGP key: keyctl padd asymmetric bar @s <dhowells.pub or a pointer into the contents of the TPM: keyctl add asymmetric zebra "TPM:04982390582905f8" @s Inside the kernel, pluggable parsers register themselves and then get to examine the payload data to see if they can handle it. If they can, they get to: (1) Propose a name for the key, to be used it the name is "" or NULL. (2) Specify the key subtype. (3) Provide the data for the subtype. The key type asks the parser to do its stuff before a key is allocated and thus before the name is set. If successful, the parser stores the suggested data into the key_preparsed_payload struct, which will be either used (if the key is successfully created and instantiated or updated) or discarded.

2012-10-08KEYS: Implement asymmetric key typeDavid Howells
Create a key type that can be used to represent an asymmetric key type for use in appropriate cryptographic operations, such as encryption, decryption, signature generation and signature verification. The key type is "asymmetric" and can provide access to a variety of cryptographic algorithms. Possibly, this would be better as "public_key" - but that has the disadvantage that "public key" is an overloaded term.
