* [PATCH] selinux_sb_copy_data() should not require a whole pageEric Paris2005-06-301-1/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently selinux_sb_copy_data requires an entire page be allocated to *orig when the function is called. This "requirement" is based on the fact that we call copy_page(in_save, nosec_save) and in_save = orig when the data is not FS_BINARY_MOUNTDATA. This means that if a caller were to call do_kern_mount with only about 10 bytes of options, they would get passed here and then we would corrupt PAGE_SIZE - 10 bytes of memory (with all zeros.) Currently it appears all in kernel FS's use one page of data so this has not been a problem. An out of kernel FS did just what is described above and it would almost always panic shortly after they tried to mount. From looking else where in the kernel it is obvious that this string of data must always be null terminated. (See example in do_mount where it always zeros the last byte.) Thus I suggest we use strcpy in place of copy_page. In this way we make sure the amount we copy is always less than or equal to the amount we received and since do_mount is zeroing the last byte this should be safe for all.

* [PATCH] selinux: add executable heap checkLorenzo Hernández García-Hierro2005-06-253-0/+13
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch,based on sample code by Roland McGrath, adds an execheap permission check that controls the ability to make the heap executable so that this can be prevented in almost all cases (the X server is presently an exception, but this will hopefully be resolved in the future) so that even programs with execmem permission will need to have the anonymous memory mapped in order to make it executable. The only reason that we use a permission check for such restriction (vs. making it unconditional) is that the X module loader presently needs it; it could possibly be made unconditional in the future when X is changed.

* [PATCH] selinux: add executable stack checkLorenzo Hernandez García-Hierro2005-06-253-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch adds an execstack permission check that controls the ability to make the main process stack executable so that attempts to make the stack executable can still be prevented even if the process is allowed the existing execmem permission in order to e.g. perform runtime code generation. Note that this does not yet address thread stacks. Note also that unlike the execmem check, the execstack check is only applied on mprotect calls, not mmap calls, as the current security_file_mmap hook is not passed the necessary information presently. The original author of the code that makes the distinction of the stack region, is Ingo Molnar, who wrote it within his patch for /proc/<pid>/maps markers. (http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=110719881508591&w=2) The patches also can be found at: http://pearls.tuxedo-es.org/patches/selinux/policy-execstack.patch http://pearls.tuxedo-es.org/patches/selinux/kernel-execstack.patch policy-execstack.patch is the patch that needs to be applied to the policy in order to support the execstack permission and exclude it from general_domain_access within macros/core_macros.te. kernel-execstack.patch adds such permission to the SELinux code within the kernel and adds the proper permission check to the selinux_file_mprotect() hook.

* [NETLINK]: Neighbour table configuration and statistics via rtnetlinkThomas Graf2005-06-181-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To retrieve the neighbour tables send RTM_GETNEIGHTBL with the NLM_F_DUMP flag set. Every neighbour table configuration is spread over multiple messages to avoid running into message size limits on systems with many interfaces. The first message in the sequence transports all not device specific data such as statistics, configuration, and the default parameter set. This message is followed by 0..n messages carrying device specific parameter sets. Although the ordering should be sufficient, NDTA_NAME can be used to identify sequences. The initial message can be identified by checking for NDTA_CONFIG. The device specific messages do not contain this TLV but have NDTPA_IFINDEX set to the corresponding interface index. To change neighbour table attributes, send RTM_SETNEIGHTBL with NDTA_NAME set. Changeable attribute include NDTA_THRESH[1-3], NDTA_GC_INTERVAL, and all TLVs in NDTA_PARMS unless marked otherwise. Device specific parameter sets can be changed by setting NDTPA_IFINDEX to the interface index of the corresponding device. Signed-off-by: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch> Signed-off-by: David S.

* AUDIT: Fix remaining cases of direct logging of untrusted strings by avc_auditStephen Smalley2005-05-241-13/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Per Steve Grubb's observation that there are some remaining cases where avc_audit() directly logs untrusted strings without escaping them, here is a patch that changes avc_audit() to use audit_log_untrustedstring() or audit_log_hex() as appropriate. Note that d_name.name is nul- terminated by d_alloc(), and that sun_path is nul-terminated by unix_mkname(), so it is not necessary for the AVC to create nul- terminated copies or to alter audit_log_untrustedstring to take a length argument. In the case of an abstract name, we use audit_log_hex() with an explicit length. Signed-off-by: Stephen Smalley <sds@tycho.nsa.gov> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>

| * [PATCH] selinux: fix avc_alloc_node() oom with no policy loadedStephen Smalley2005-05-171-3/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch should fix the avc_alloc_node() oom condition that Andrew reported when no policy is loaded in SELinux. Prior to this patch, when no policy was loaded, the SELinux "security server" (policy engine) was only returning allowed decisions for the requested permissions for each access check. This caused the cache to thrash when trying to use SELinux for real work with no policy loaded (typically, the no policy loaded state is only for bootstrapping to the point where we can load an initial policy). This patch changes the SELinux security server to return the complete allowed access vector at once, and then to reset the cache after the initial policy load to flush the initial cache state created during bootstrapping.

* | Restore logging of pid= and comm= in AVC audit messagesDavid Woodhouse2005-05-191-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | We turned this all off because the 'exe=' was causing deadlocks on dcache_lock. There's no need to leave the pid and comm out though.

* | The attached patch addresses the problem with getting the audit daemon Steve Grubb2005-05-061-0/+1
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | shutdown credential information. It creates a new message type AUDIT_TERM_INFO, which is used by the audit daemon to query who issued the shutdown. It requires the placement of a hook function that gathers the information. The hook is after the DAC & MAC checks and before the function returns. Racing threads could overwrite the uid & pid - but they would have to be root and have policy that allows signalling the audit daemon. That should be a manageable risk. The userspace component will be released later in audit 0.7.2. When it receives the TERM signal, it queries the kernel for shutdown information. When it receives it, it writes the message and exits. The message looks like this: type=DAEMON msg=auditd(1114551182.000) auditd normal halt, sending pid=2650 uid=525, auditd pid=1685 Signed-off-by: Steve Grubb <sgrubb@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
* [PATCH] SELinux: add finer grained permissions to Netlink audit processingJames Morris2005-05-013-7/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch provides finer grained permissions for the audit family of Netlink sockets under SELinux. 1. We need a way to differentiate between privileged and unprivileged reads of kernel data maintained by the audit subsystem. The AUDIT_GET operation is unprivileged: it returns the current status of the audit subsystem (e.g. whether it's enabled etc.). The AUDIT_LIST operation however returns a list of the current audit ruleset, which is considered privileged by the audit folk. To deal with this, a new SELinux permission has been implemented and applied to the operation: nlmsg_readpriv, which can be allocated to appropriately privileged domains. Unprivileged domains would only be allocated nlmsg_read. 2. There is a requirement for certain domains to generate audit events from userspace. These events need to be collected by the kernel, collated and transmitted sequentially back to the audit daemon. An example is user level login, an auditable event under CAPP, where login-related domains generate AUDIT_USER messages via PAM which are relayed back to auditd via the kernel. To prevent handing out nlmsg_write permissions to such domains, a new permission has been added, nlmsg_relay, which is intended for this type of purpose: data is passed via the kernel back to userspace but no privileged information is written to the kernel. Also, AUDIT_LOGIN messages are now valid only for kernel->user messaging, so this value has been removed from the SELinux nlmsgtab (which is only used to check user->kernel messages).

* [SELINUX]: Fix ipv6_skip_exthdr() invocation causing OOPS.Herbert Xu2005-04-241-2/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The SELinux hooks invoke ipv6_skip_exthdr() with an incorrect length final argument. However, the length argument turns out to be superfluous. I was just reading ipv6_skip_exthdr and it occured to me that we can get rid of len altogether. The only place where len is used is to check whether the skb has two bytes for ipv6_opt_hdr. This check is done by skb_header_pointer/skb_copy_bits anyway. Now it might appear that we've made the code slower by deferring the check to skb_copy_bits. However, this check should not trigger in the common case so this is OK. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* [PATCH] SELinux: fix deadlock on dcache lockStephen Smalley2005-04-181-34/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This fixes a deadlock on the dcache lock detected during testing at IBM by moving the logging of the current executable information from the SELinux avc_audit function to audit_log_exit (via an audit_log_task_info helper) for processing upon syscall exit. For consistency, the patch also removes the logging of other task-related information from avc_audit, deferring handling to audit_log_exit instead. This allows simplification of the avc_audit code, allows the exe information to be obtained more reliably, always includes the comm information (useful for scripts), and avoids including bogus task information for checks performed from irq or softirq.

* [PATCH] SELinux: add support for NETLINK_KOBJECT_UEVENTJames Morris2005-04-166-0/+39
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch adds SELinux support for the KOBJECT_UEVENT Netlink family, so that SELinux can apply finer grained controls to it. For example, security policy for hald can be locked down to the KOBJECT_UEVENT Netlink family only. Currently, this family simply defaults to the default Netlink socket class.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
