2020-10-13LSM: SafeSetID: Fix warnings reported by test botThomas Cedeno
Fix multiple cast-to-union warnings related to casting kuid_t and kgid_t types to kid_t union type. Also fix incompatible type warning that arises from accidental omission of "__rcu" qualifier on the struct setid_ruleset pointer in the argument list for safesetid_file_read().

2020-10-13LSM: SafeSetID: Add GID security policy handlingThomas Cedeno
The SafeSetID LSM has functionality for restricting setuid() calls based on its configured security policies. This patch adds the analogous functionality for setgid() calls. This is mostly a copy-and-paste change with some code deduplication, plus slight modifications/name changes to the policy-rule-related structs (now contain GID rules in addition to the UID ones) and some type generalization since SafeSetID now needs to deal with kgid_t and kuid_t types.

2019-09-17LSM: SafeSetID: Stop releasing uninitialized rulesetMicah Morton
The first time a rule set is configured for SafeSetID, we shouldn't be trying to release the previously configured ruleset, since there isn't one. Currently, the pointer that would point to a previously configured ruleset is uninitialized on first rule set configuration, leading to a crash when we try to call release_ruleset with that pointer.

2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: fix use of literal -1 in capable hookJann Horn
The capable() hook returns an error number. -EPERM is actually the same as -1, so this doesn't make a difference in behavior. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>
2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: verify transitive constrainednessJann Horn
Someone might write a ruleset like the following, expecting that it securely constrains UID 1 to UIDs 1, 2 and 3: 1:2 1:3 However, because no constraints are applied to UIDs 2 and 3, an attacker with UID 1 can simply first switch to UID 2, then switch to any UID from there. The secure way to write this ruleset would be: 1:2 1:3 2:2 3:3 , which uses "transition to self" as a way to inhibit the default-allow policy without allowing anything specific. This is somewhat unintuitive. To make sure that policy authors don't accidentally write insecure policies because of this, let the kernel verify that a new ruleset does not contain any entries that are constrained, but transitively unconstrained.

2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: add read handlerJann Horn
For debugging a running system, it is very helpful to be able to see what policy the system is using. Add a read handler that can dump out a copy of the loaded policy. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>
2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: rewrite userspace API to atomic updatesJann Horn
The current API of the SafeSetID LSM uses one write() per rule, and applies each written rule instantly. This has several downsides: - While a policy is being loaded, once a single parent-child pair has been loaded, the parent is restricted to that specific child, even if subsequent rules would allow transitions to other child UIDs. This means that during policy loading, set*uid() can randomly fail. - To replace the policy without rebooting, it is necessary to first flush all old rules. This creates a time window in which no constraints are placed on the use of CAP_SETUID. - If we want to perform sanity checks on the final policy, this requires that the policy isn't constructed in a piecemeal fashion without telling the kernel when it's done. Other kernel APIs - including things like the userns code and netfilter - avoid this problem by performing updates atomically. Luckily, SafeSetID hasn't landed in a stable (upstream) release yet, so maybe it's not too late to completely change the API. The new API for SafeSetID is: If you want to change the policy, open "safesetid/whitelist_policy" and write the entire policy, newline-delimited, in there.

2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: fix userns handling in securityfsJann Horn
Looking at current_cred() in write handlers is bad form, stop doing that. Also, let's just require that the write is coming from the initial user namespace. Especially SAFESETID_WHITELIST_FLUSH requires privilege over all namespaces, and SAFESETID_WHITELIST_ADD should probably require it as well. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>

2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: refactor safesetid_security_capable()Jann Horn
At the moment, safesetid_security_capable() has two nested conditional blocks, and one big comment for all the logic. Chop it up and reduce the amount of indentation. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>
2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: refactor policy hash tableJann Horn
parent_kuid and child_kuid are kuids, there is no reason to make them uint64_t. (And anyway, in the kernel, the normal name for that would be u64, not uint64_t.) check_setuid_policy_hashtable_key() and check_setuid_policy_hashtable_key_value() are basically the same thing, merge them. Also fix the comment that claimed that (1<<8)==128. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>
2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: fix check for setresuid(new1, new2, new3)Jann Horn
With the old code, when a process with the (real,effective,saved) UID set (1,1,1) calls setresuid(2,3,4), safesetid_task_fix_setuid() only checks whether the transition 1->2 is permitted; the transitions 1->3 and 1->4 are not checked. Fix this. This is also a good opportunity to refactor safesetid_task_fix_setuid() to be less verbose - having one branch per set*uid() syscall is unnecessary. Note that this slightly changes semantics: The UID transition check for UIDs that were not in the old cred struct is now always performed against the policy of the RUID. I think that's more consistent anyway, since the RUID is also the one that decides whether any policy is enforced at all. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>
2019-07-15LSM: SafeSetID: fix pr_warn() to include newlineJann Horn
Fix the pr_warn() calls in the SafeSetID LSM to have newlines at the end. Without this, denial messages will be buffered as incomplete lines in log_output(), and will then only show up once something else prints into dmesg. Signed-off-by: Jann Horn <> Signed-off-by: Micah Morton <>
2019-07-08Merge branch 'siginfo-linus' of ↵Linus Torvalds
git:// Pull force_sig() argument change from Eric Biederman: "A source of error over the years has been that force_sig has taken a task parameter when it is only safe to use force_sig with the current task. The force_sig function is built for delivering synchronous signals such as SIGSEGV where the userspace application caused a synchronous fault (such as a page fault) and the kernel responded with a signal. Because the name force_sig does not make this clear, and because the force_sig takes a task parameter the function force_sig has been abused for sending other kinds of signals over the years. Slowly those have been fixed when the oopses have been tracked down. This set of changes fixes the remaining abusers of force_sig and carefully rips out the task parameter from force_sig and friends making this kind of error almost impossible in the future" * 'siginfo-linus' of git:// (27 commits) signal/x86: Move tsk inside of CONFIG_MEMORY_FAILURE in do_sigbus signal: Remove the signal number and task parameters from force_sig_info signal: Factor force_sig_info_to_task out of force_sig_info signal: Generate the siginfo in force_sig signal: Move the computation of force into send_signal and correct it. signal: Properly set TRACE_SIGNAL_LOSE_INFO in __send_signal signal: Remove the task parameter from force_sig_fault signal: Use force_sig_fault_to_task for the two calls that don't deliver to current signal: Explicitly call force_sig_fault on current signal/unicore32: Remove tsk parameter from __do_user_fault signal/arm: Remove tsk parameter from __do_user_fault signal/arm: Remove tsk parameter from ptrace_break signal/nds32: Remove tsk parameter from send_sigtrap signal/riscv: Remove tsk parameter from do_trap signal/sh: Remove tsk parameter from force_sig_info_fault signal/um: Remove task parameter from send_sigtrap signal/x86: Remove task parameter from send_sigtrap signal: Remove task parameter from force_sig_mceerr signal: Remove task parameter from force_sig signal: Remove task parameter from force_sigsegv ...

2019-01-25LSM: add SafeSetID module that gates setid callsMicah Morton
SafeSetID gates the setid family of syscalls to restrict UID/GID transitions from a given UID/GID to only those approved by a system-wide whitelist. These restrictions also prohibit the given UIDs/GIDs from obtaining auxiliary privileges associated with CAP_SET{U/G}ID, such as allowing a user to set up user namespace UID mappings. For now, only gating the set*uid family of syscalls is supported, with support for set*gid coming in a future patch set.
