2020-06-23selinux: allow reading labels before policy is loadedJonathan Lebon
This patch does for `getxattr` what commit 3e3e24b42043 ("selinux: allow labeling before policy is loaded") did for `setxattr`; it allows querying the current SELinux label on disk before the policy is loaded. One of the motivations described in that commit message also drives this patch: for Fedora CoreOS (and eventually RHEL CoreOS), we want to be able to move the root filesystem for example, from xfs to ext4 on RAID, on first boot, at initrd time.[1] Because such an operation works at the filesystem level, we need to be able to read the SELinux labels first from the original root, and apply them to the files of the new root. The previous commit enabled the second part of this process; this commit enables the first part. [1] Acked-by: Stephen Smalley <> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Lebon <> Signed-off-by: Paul Moore <>

git:// Pull notification queue from David Howells: "This adds a general notification queue concept and adds an event source for keys/keyrings, such as linking and unlinking keys and changing their attributes. Thanks to Debarshi Ray, we do have a pull request to use this to fix a problem with gnome-online-accounts - as mentioned last time: Without this, g-o-a has to constantly poll a keyring-based kerberos cache to find out if kinit has changed anything. [ There are other notification pending: mount/sb fsinfo notifications for libmount that Karel Zak and Ian Kent have been working on, and Christian Brauner would like to use them in lxc, but let's see how this one works first ] LSM hooks are included: - A set of hooks are provided that allow an LSM to rule on whether or not a watch may be set. Each of these hooks takes a different "watched object" parameter, so they're not really shareable. The LSM should use current's credentials. [Wanted by SELinux & Smack] - A hook is provided to allow an LSM to rule on whether or not a particular message may be posted to a particular queue. This is given the credentials from the event generator (which may be the system) and the watch setter. [Wanted by Smack] I've provided SELinux and Smack with implementations of some of these hooks. WHY === Key/keyring notifications are desirable because if you have your kerberos tickets in a file/directory, your Gnome desktop will monitor that using something like fanotify and tell you if your credentials cache changes. However, we also have the ability to cache your kerberos tickets in the session, user or persistent keyring so that it isn't left around on disk across a reboot or logout. Keyrings, however, cannot currently be monitored asynchronously, so the desktop has to poll for it - not so good on a laptop. This facility will allow the desktop to avoid the need to poll. DESIGN DECISIONS ================ - The notification queue is built on top of a standard pipe. Messages are effectively spliced in. The pipe is opened with a special flag: pipe2(fds, O_NOTIFICATION_PIPE); The special flag has the same value as O_EXCL (which doesn't seem like it will ever be applicable in this context)[?]. It is given up front to make it a lot easier to prohibit splice&co from accessing the pipe. [?] Should this be done some other way? I'd rather not use up a new O_* flag if I can avoid it - should I add a pipe3() system call instead? The pipe is then configured:: ioctl(fds[1], IOC_WATCH_QUEUE_SET_SIZE, queue_depth); ioctl(fds[1], IOC_WATCH_QUEUE_SET_FILTER, &filter); Messages are then read out of the pipe using read(). - It should be possible to allow write() to insert data into the notification pipes too, but this is currently disabled as the kernel has to be able to insert messages into the pipe *without* holding pipe->mutex and the code to make this work needs careful auditing. - sendfile(), splice() and vmsplice() are disabled on notification pipes because of the pipe->mutex issue and also because they sometimes want to revert what they just did - but one or more notification messages might've been interleaved in the ring. - The kernel inserts messages with the wait queue spinlock held. This means that pipe_read() and pipe_write() have to take the spinlock to update the queue pointers. - Records in the buffer are binary, typed and have a length so that they can be of varying size. This allows multiple heterogeneous sources to share a common buffer; there are 16 million types available, of which I've used just a few, so there is scope for others to be used. Tags may be specified when a watchpoint is created to help distinguish the sources. - Records are filterable as types have up to 256 subtypes that can be individually filtered. Other filtration is also available. - Notification pipes don't interfere with each other; each may be bound to a different set of watches. Any particular notification will be copied to all the queues that are currently watching for it - and only those that are watching for it. - When recording a notification, the kernel will not sleep, but will rather mark a queue as having lost a message if there's insufficient space. read() will fabricate a loss notification message at an appropriate point later. - The notification pipe is created and then watchpoints are attached to it, using one of: keyctl_watch_key(KEY_SPEC_SESSION_KEYRING, fds[1], 0x01); watch_mount(AT_FDCWD, "/", 0, fd, 0x02); watch_sb(AT_FDCWD, "/mnt", 0, fd, 0x03); where in both cases, fd indicates the queue and the number after is a tag between 0 and 255. - Watches are removed if either the notification pipe is destroyed or the watched object is destroyed. In the latter case, a message will be generated indicating the enforced watch removal. Things I want to avoid: - Introducing features that make the core VFS dependent on the network stack or networking namespaces (ie. usage of netlink). - Dumping all this stuff into dmesg and having a daemon that sits there parsing the output and distributing it as this then puts the responsibility for security into userspace and makes handling namespaces tricky. Further, dmesg might not exist or might be inaccessible inside a container. - Letting users see events they shouldn't be able to see. TESTING AND MANPAGES ==================== - The keyutils tree has a pipe-watch branch that has keyctl commands for making use of notifications. Proposed manual pages can also be found on this branch, though a couple of them really need to go to the main manpages repository instead. If the kernel supports the watching of keys, then running "make test" on that branch will cause the testing infrastructure to spawn a monitoring process on the side that monitors a notifications pipe for all the key/keyring changes induced by the tests and they'll all be checked off to make sure they happened. - A test program is provided (samples/watch_queue/watch_test) that can be used to monitor for keyrings, mount and superblock events.

2020-05-20exec: Factor security_bprm_creds_for_exec out of security_bprm_set_credsEric W. Biederman
Today security_bprm_set_creds has several implementations: apparmor_bprm_set_creds, cap_bprm_set_creds, selinux_bprm_set_creds, smack_bprm_set_creds, and tomoyo_bprm_set_creds. Except for cap_bprm_set_creds they all test bprm->called_set_creds and return immediately if it is true. The function cap_bprm_set_creds ignores bprm->calld_sed_creds entirely. Create a new LSM hook security_bprm_creds_for_exec that is called just before prepare_binprm in __do_execve_file, resulting in a LSM hook that is called exactly once for the entire of exec. Modify the bits of security_bprm_set_creds that only want to be called once per exec into security_bprm_creds_for_exec, leaving only cap_bprm_set_creds behind. Remove bprm->called_set_creds all of it's former users have been moved to security_bprm_creds_for_exec. Add or upate comments a appropriate to bring them up to date and to reflect this change.

2020-05-19keys: Make the KEY_NEED_* perms an enum rather than a maskDavid Howells
Since the meaning of combining the KEY_NEED_* constants is undefined, make it so that you can't do that by turning them into an enum. The enum is also given some extra values to represent special circumstances, such as: (1) The '0' value is reserved and causes a warning to trap the parameter being unset. (2) The key is to be unlinked and we require no permissions on it, only the keyring, (this replaces the KEY_LOOKUP_FOR_UNLINK flag). (3) An override due to CAP_SYS_ADMIN. (4) An override due to an instantiation token being present. (5) The permissions check is being deferred to later key_permission() calls. The extra values give the opportunity for LSMs to audit these situations. [Note: This really needs overhauling so that lookup_user_key() tells key_task_permission() and the LSM what operation is being done and leaves it to those functions to decide how to map that onto the available permits. However, I don't really want to make these change in the middle of the notifications patchset.] Signed-off-by: David Howells <> cc: Jarkko Sakkinen <> cc: Paul Moore <> cc: Stephen Smalley <> cc: Casey Schaufler <> cc: cc:

2020-02-10Documentation,selinux: deprecate setting checkreqprot to 1Stephen Smalley
Deprecate setting the SELinux checkreqprot tunable to 1 via kernel parameter or /sys/fs/selinux/checkreqprot. Setting it to 0 is left intact for compatibility since Android and some Linux distributions do so for security and treat an inability to set it as a fatal error. Eventually setting it to 0 will become a no-op and the kernel will stop using checkreqprot's value internally altogether. checkreqprot was originally introduced as a compatibility mechanism for legacy userspace and the READ_IMPLIES_EXEC personality flag. However, if set to 1, it weakens security by allowing mappings to be made executable without authorization by policy. The default value for the SECURITY_SELINUX_CHECKREQPROT_VALUE config option was changed from 1 to 0 in commit 2a35d196c160e3 ("selinux: change CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_CHECKREQPROT_VALUE default") and both Android and Linux distributions began explicitly setting /sys/fs/selinux/checkreqprot to 0 some time ago.

2020-01-10selinux: reorder hooks to make runtime disable less brokenOndrej Mosnacek
Commit b1d9e6b0646d ("LSM: Switch to lists of hooks") switched the LSM infrastructure to use per-hook lists, which meant that removing the hooks for a given module was no longer atomic. Even though the commit clearly documents that modules implementing runtime revmoval of hooks (only SELinux attempts this madness) need to take special precautions to avoid race conditions, SELinux has never addressed this. By inserting an artificial delay between the loop iterations of security_delete_hooks() (I used 100 ms), booting to a state where SELinux is enabled, but policy is not yet loaded, and running these commands: while true; do ping -c 1 <some IP>; done & echo -n 1 >/sys/fs/selinux/disable kill %1 wait ...I was able to trigger NULL pointer dereferences in various places. I also have a report of someone getting panics on a stock RHEL-8 kernel after setting SELINUX=disabled in /etc/selinux/config and rebooting (without adding "selinux=0" to kernel command-line). Reordering the SELinux hooks such that those that allocate structures are removed last seems to prevent these panics. It is very much possible that this doesn't make the runtime disable completely race-free, but at least it makes the operation much less fragile.

Implement a SELinux hook for lockdown. If the lockdown module is also enabled, then a denial by the lockdown module will take precedence over SELinux, so SELinux can only further restrict lockdown decisions. The SELinux hook only distinguishes at the granularity of integrity versus confidentiality similar to the lockdown module, but includes the full lockdown reason as part of the audit record as a hint in diagnosing what triggered the denial. To support this auditing, move the lockdown_reasons[] string array from being private to the lockdown module to the security framework so that it can be used by the lsm audit code and so that it is always available even when the lockdown module is disabled. Note that the SELinux implementation allows the integrity and confidentiality reasons to be controlled independently from one another. Thus, in an SELinux policy, one could allow operations that specify an integrity reason while blocking operations that specify a confidentiality reason. The SELinux hook implementation is stricter than the lockdown module in validating the provided reason value.

2019-10-17perf_event: Add support for LSM and SELinux checksJoel Fernandes (Google)
In current mainline, the degree of access to perf_event_open(2) system call depends on the perf_event_paranoid sysctl. This has a number of limitations: 1. The sysctl is only a single value. Many types of accesses are controlled based on the single value thus making the control very limited and coarse grained. 2. The sysctl is global, so if the sysctl is changed, then that means all processes get access to perf_event_open(2) opening the door to security issues. This patch adds LSM and SELinux access checking which will be used in Android to access perf_event_open(2) for the purposes of attaching BPF programs to tracepoints, perf profiling and other operations from userspace. These operations are intended for production systems. 5 new LSM hooks are added: 1. perf_event_open: This controls access during the perf_event_open(2) syscall itself. The hook is called from all the places that the perf_event_paranoid sysctl is checked to keep it consistent with the systctl. The hook gets passed a 'type' argument which controls CPU, kernel and tracepoint accesses (in this context, CPU, kernel and tracepoint have the same semantics as the perf_event_paranoid sysctl). Additionally, I added an 'open' type which is similar to perf_event_paranoid sysctl == 3 patch carried in Android and several other distros but was rejected in mainline [1] in 2016. 2. perf_event_alloc: This allocates a new security object for the event which stores the current SID within the event. It will be useful when the perf event's FD is passed through IPC to another process which may try to read the FD. Appropriate security checks will limit access. 3. perf_event_free: Called when the event is closed. 4. perf_event_read: Called from the read(2) and mmap(2) syscalls for the event. 5. perf_event_write: Called from the ioctl(2) syscalls for the event. [1] Since Peter had suggest LSM hooks in 2016 [1], I am adding his Suggested-by tag below. To use this patch, we set the perf_event_paranoid sysctl to -1 and then apply selinux checking as appropriate (default deny everything, and then add policy rules to give access to domains that need it). In the future we can remove the perf_event_paranoid sysctl altogether.

2019-10-01selinux: allow labeling before policy is loadedJonathan Lebon
Currently, the SELinux LSM prevents one from setting the `security.selinux` xattr on an inode without a policy first being loaded. However, this restriction is problematic: it makes it impossible to have newly created files with the correct label before actually loading the policy. This is relevant in distributions like Fedora, where the policy is loaded by systemd shortly after pivoting out of the initrd. In such instances, all files created prior to pivoting will be unlabeled. One then has to relabel them after pivoting, an operation which inherently races with other processes trying to access those same files. Going further, there are use cases for creating the entire root filesystem on first boot from the initrd (e.g. Container Linux supports this today[1], and we'd like to support it in Fedora CoreOS as well[2]). One can imagine doing this in two ways: at the block device level (e.g. laying down a disk image), or at the filesystem level. In the former, labeling can simply be part of the image. But even in the latter scenario, one still really wants to be able to set the right labels when populating the new filesystem. This patch enables this by changing behaviour in the following two ways: 1. allow `setxattr` if we're not initialized 2. don't try to set the in-core inode SID if we're not initialized; instead leave it as `LABEL_INVALID` so that revalidation may be attempted at a later time Note the first hunk of this patch is mostly the same as a previously discussed one[3], though it was part of a larger series which wasn't accepted.

We need to use selinux_cred() to fetch the SELinux cred blob instead of directly using current->security or current_security(). There were a couple of lingering uses of current_security() in the SELinux code that were apparently missed during the earlier conversions. IIUC, this would only manifest as a bug if multiple security modules including SELinux are enabled and SELinux is not first in the lsm order. After this change, there appear to be no other users of current_security() in-tree; perhaps we should remove it altogether.

2019-08-12fanotify, inotify, dnotify, security: add security hook for fs notificationsAaron Goidel
As of now, setting watches on filesystem objects has, at most, applied a check for read access to the inode, and in the case of fanotify, requires CAP_SYS_ADMIN. No specific security hook or permission check has been provided to control the setting of watches. Using any of inotify, dnotify, or fanotify, it is possible to observe, not only write-like operations, but even read access to a file. Modeling the watch as being merely a read from the file is insufficient for the needs of SELinux. This is due to the fact that read access should not necessarily imply access to information about when another process reads from a file. Furthermore, fanotify watches grant more power to an application in the form of permission events. While notification events are solely, unidirectional (i.e. they only pass information to the receiving application), permission events are blocking. Permission events make a request to the receiving application which will then reply with a decision as to whether or not that action may be completed. This causes the issue of the watching application having the ability to exercise control over the triggering process. Without drawing a distinction within the permission check, the ability to read would imply the greater ability to control an application. Additionally, mount and superblock watches apply to all files within the same mount or superblock. Read access to one file should not necessarily imply the ability to watch all files accessed within a given mount or superblock. In order to solve these issues, a new LSM hook is implemented and has been placed within the system calls for marking filesystem objects with inotify, fanotify, and dnotify watches. These calls to the hook are placed at the point at which the target path has been resolved and are provided with the path struct, the mask of requested notification events, and the type of object on which the mark is being set (inode, superblock, or mount). The mask and obj_type have already been translated into common FS_* values shared by the entirety of the fs notification infrastructure. The path struct is passed rather than just the inode so that the mount is available, particularly for mount watches. This also allows for use of the hook by pathname-based security modules. However, since the hook is intended for use even by inode based security modules, it is not placed under the CONFIG_SECURITY_PATH conditional. Otherwise, the inode-based security modules would need to enable all of the path hooks, even though they do not use any of them. This only provides a hook at the point of setting a watch, and presumes that permission to set a particular watch implies the ability to receive all notification about that object which match the mask. This is all that is required for SELinux. If other security modules require additional hooks or infrastructure to control delivery of notification, these can be added by them. It does not make sense for us to propose hooks for which we have no implementation. The understanding that all notifications received by the requesting application are all strictly of a type for which the application has been granted permission shows that this implementation is sufficient in its coverage. Security modules wishing to provide complete control over fanotify must also implement a security_file_open hook that validates that the access requested by the watching application is authorized. Fanotify has the issue that it returns a file descriptor with the file mode specified during fanotify_init() to the watching process on event. This is already covered by the LSM security_file_open hook if the security module implements checking of the requested file mode there. Otherwise, a watching process can obtain escalated access to a file for which it has not been authorized. The selinux_path_notify hook implementation works by adding five new file permissions: watch, watch_mount, watch_sb, watch_reads, and watch_with_perm (descriptions about which will follow), and one new filesystem permission: watch (which is applied to superblock checks). The hook then decides which subset of these permissions must be held by the requesting application based on the contents of the provided mask and the obj_type. The selinux_file_open hook already checks the requested file mode and therefore ensures that a watching process cannot escalate its access through fanotify. The watch, watch_mount, and watch_sb permissions are the baseline permissions for setting a watch on an object and each are a requirement for any watch to be set on a file, mount, or superblock respectively. It should be noted that having either of the other two permissions (watch_reads and watch_with_perm) does not imply the watch, watch_mount, or watch_sb permission. Superblock watches further require the filesystem watch permission to the superblock. As there is no labeled object in view for mounts, there is no specific check for mount watches beyond watch_mount to the inode. Such a check could be added in the future, if a suitable labeled object existed representing the mount. The watch_reads permission is required to receive notifications from read-exclusive events on filesystem objects. These events include accessing a file for the purpose of reading and closing a file which has been opened read-only. This distinction has been drawn in order to provide a direct indication in the policy for this otherwise not obvious capability. Read access to a file should not necessarily imply the ability to observe read events on a file. Finally, watch_with_perm only applies to fanotify masks since it is the only way to set a mask which allows for the blocking, permission event. This permission is needed for any watch which is of this type. Though fanotify requires CAP_SYS_ADMIN, this is insufficient as it gives implicit trust to root, which we do not do, and does not support least privilege.

2019-06-27keys: Replace uid/gid/perm permissions checking with an ACLDavid Howells
Replace the uid/gid/perm permissions checking on a key with an ACL to allow the SETATTR and SEARCH permissions to be split. This will also allow a greater range of subjects to represented. ============ WHY DO THIS? ============ The problem is that SETATTR and SEARCH cover a slew of actions, not all of which should be grouped together. For SETATTR, this includes actions that are about controlling access to a key: (1) Changing a key's ownership. (2) Changing a key's security information. (3) Setting a keyring's restriction. And actions that are about managing a key's lifetime: (4) Setting an expiry time. (5) Revoking a key. and (proposed) managing a key as part of a cache: (6) Invalidating a key. Managing a key's lifetime doesn't really have anything to do with controlling access to that key. Expiry time is awkward since it's more about the lifetime of the content and so, in some ways goes better with WRITE permission. It can, however, be set unconditionally by a process with an appropriate authorisation token for instantiating a key, and can also be set by the key type driver when a key is instantiated, so lumping it with the access-controlling actions is probably okay. As for SEARCH permission, that currently covers: (1) Finding keys in a keyring tree during a search. (2) Permitting keyrings to be joined. (3) Invalidation. But these don't really belong together either, since these actions really need to be controlled separately. Finally, there are number of special cases to do with granting the administrator special rights to invalidate or clear keys that I would like to handle with the ACL rather than key flags and special checks. =============== WHAT IS CHANGED =============== The SETATTR permission is split to create two new permissions: (1) SET_SECURITY - which allows the key's owner, group and ACL to be changed and a restriction to be placed on a keyring. (2) REVOKE - which allows a key to be revoked. The SEARCH permission is split to create: (1) SEARCH - which allows a keyring to be search and a key to be found. (2) JOIN - which allows a keyring to be joined as a session keyring. (3) INVAL - which allows a key to be invalidated. The WRITE permission is also split to create: (1) WRITE - which allows a key's content to be altered and links to be added, removed and replaced in a keyring. (2) CLEAR - which allows a keyring to be cleared completely. This is split out to make it possible to give just this to an administrator. (3) REVOKE - see above. Keys acquire ACLs which consist of a series of ACEs, and all that apply are unioned together. An ACE specifies a subject, such as: (*) Possessor - permitted to anyone who 'possesses' a key (*) Owner - permitted to the key owner (*) Group - permitted to the key group (*) Everyone - permitted to everyone Note that 'Other' has been replaced with 'Everyone' on the assumption that you wouldn't grant a permit to 'Other' that you wouldn't also grant to everyone else. Further subjects may be made available by later patches. The ACE also specifies a permissions mask. The set of permissions is now: VIEW Can view the key metadata READ Can read the key content WRITE Can update/modify the key content SEARCH Can find the key by searching/requesting LINK Can make a link to the key SET_SECURITY Can change owner, ACL, expiry INVAL Can invalidate REVOKE Can revoke JOIN Can join this keyring CLEAR Can clear this keyring The KEYCTL_SETPERM function is then deprecated. The KEYCTL_SET_TIMEOUT function then is permitted if SET_SECURITY is set, or if the caller has a valid instantiation auth token. The KEYCTL_INVALIDATE function then requires INVAL. The KEYCTL_REVOKE function then requires REVOKE. The KEYCTL_JOIN_SESSION_KEYRING function then requires JOIN to join an existing keyring. The JOIN permission is enabled by default for session keyrings and manually created keyrings only. ====================== BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY ====================== To maintain backward compatibility, KEYCTL_SETPERM will translate the permissions mask it is given into a new ACL for a key - unless KEYCTL_SET_ACL has been called on that key, in which case an error will be returned. It will convert possessor, owner, group and other permissions into separate ACEs, if each portion of the mask is non-zero. SETATTR permission turns on all of INVAL, REVOKE and SET_SECURITY. WRITE permission turns on WRITE, REVOKE and, if a keyring, CLEAR. JOIN is turned on if a keyring is being altered. The KEYCTL_DESCRIBE function translates the ACL back into a permissions mask to return depending on possessor, owner, group and everyone ACEs. It will make the following mappings: (1) INVAL, JOIN -> SEARCH (2) SET_SECURITY -> SETATTR (3) REVOKE -> WRITE if SETATTR isn't already set (4) CLEAR -> WRITE Note that the value subsequently returned by KEYCTL_DESCRIBE may not match the value set with KEYCTL_SETATTR. ======= TESTING ======= This passes the keyutils testsuite for all but a couple of tests: (1) tests/keyctl/dh_compute/badargs: The first wrong-key-type test now returns EOPNOTSUPP rather than ENOKEY as READ permission isn't removed if the type doesn't have ->read(). You still can't actually read the key. (2) tests/keyctl/permitting/valid: The view-other-permissions test doesn't work as Other has been replaced with Everyone in the ACL.
