+Description:
+ The Trusted Computing Group(TCG) runtime Integrity
+ Measurement Architecture(IMA) maintains a list of hash
+ values of executables and other sensitive system files
+ loaded into the run-time of this system. At runtime,
+ the policy can be constrained based on LSM specific data.
+ Policies are loaded into the securityfs file ima/policy
+ by opening the file, writing the rules one at a time and
+ then closing the file. The new policy takes effect after
+ the file ima/policy is closed.
+
+ rule format: action [condition ...]
+
+ action: measure | dont_measure
+ condition:= base | lsm
+ base: [[func=] [mask=] [fsmagic=] [uid=]]
+ lsm: [[subj_user=] [subj_role=] [subj_type=]
+ [obj_user=] [obj_role=] [obj_type=]]
+
+ base: func:= [BPRM_CHECK][FILE_MMAP][INODE_PERMISSION]
+ mask:= [MAY_READ] [MAY_WRITE] [MAY_APPEND] [MAY_EXEC]
+ fsmagic:= hex value
+ uid:= decimal value
+ lsm: are LSM specific
+
+ default policy:
+ # PROC_SUPER_MAGIC
+ dont_measure fsmagic=0x9fa0
+ # SYSFS_MAGIC
+ dont_measure fsmagic=0x62656572
+ # DEBUGFS_MAGIC
+ dont_measure fsmagic=0x64626720
+ # TMPFS_MAGIC
+ dont_measure fsmagic=0x01021994
+ # SECURITYFS_MAGIC
+ dont_measure fsmagic=0x73636673
+
+ measure func=BPRM_CHECK
+ measure func=FILE_MMAP mask=MAY_EXEC
+ measure func=INODE_PERM mask=MAY_READ uid=0
+
+ The default policy measures all executables in bprm_check,
+ all files mmapped executable in file_mmap, and all files
+ open for read by root in inode_permission.
+
+ Examples of LSM specific definitions:
+
+ SELinux:
+ # SELINUX_MAGIC
+ dont_measure fsmagic=0xF97CFF8C
+
+ dont_measure obj_type=var_log_t
+ dont_measure obj_type=auditd_log_t
+ measure subj_user=system_u func=INODE_PERM mask=MAY_READ
+ measure subj_role=system_r func=INODE_PERM mask=MAY_READ
+
+ Smack:
+ measure subj_user=_ func=INODE_PERM mask=MAY_READ
