IPE is a Linux Security Module which allows for a configurable

was built by a trusted source.

How is that different from security/integrity/ima?

Maybe if you would have read the cover letter all the way down to the
5th paragraph which explains how IPE is different from IMA we could
avoided this mail exchange...
