[PATCH v5 00/10] ima: carry the measurement list across kexec

From: Mimi Zohar
Date: Mon Sep 26 2016 - 13:31:05 EST

The TPM PCRs are only reset on a hard reboot. In order to validate a
TPM's quote after a soft reboot (eg. kexec -e), the IMA measurement list
of the running kernel must be saved and then restored on the subsequent
boot, possibly of a different architecture.

The existing securityfs binary_runtime_measurements file conveniently
provides a serialized format of the IMA measurement list. This patch
set serializes the measurement list in this format and restores it.

Up to now, the binary_runtime_measurements was defined as architecture
native format. The assumption being that userspace could and would
handle any architecture conversions. With the ability of carrying the
measurement list across kexec, possibly from one architecture to a
different one, the per boot architecture information is lost and with it
the ability of recalculating the template digest hash. To resolve this
problem, without breaking the existing ABI, this patch set introduces
the boot command line option "ima_canonical_fmt", which is arbitrarily
defined as little endian.

The need for this boot command line option will be limited to the
existing version 1 format of the binary_runtime_measurements.
Subsequent formats will be defined as canonical format (eg. TPM 2.0
support for larger digests).

A simplified method of Thiago Bauermann's "kexec buffer handover" patch
series for carrying the IMA measurement list across kexec is included
in this patch set. The simplified method requires all file measurements
be taken prior to executing the kexec load, as subsequent measurements
will not be carried across the kexec and restored.

These patches can also be found in the next-kexec-restore branch of:

Changelog v5:
- Included patches from Thiago Bauermann's "kexec buffer handover"
patch series for carrying the IMA measurement list across kexec.
- Renamed functions to variations of ima_kexec_buffer instead of
variations of kexec_handover_buffer

Changelog v4:
- Fixed "spinlock bad magic" BUG - reported by Dmitry Vyukov
- Rebased on Thiago Bauermann's v5 patch set
- Removed the skip_checksum initialization

Changelog v3:
- Cleaned up the code for calculating the requested kexec segment size
needed for the IMA measurement list, limiting the segment size to half
of the totalram_pages.
- Fixed kernel test robot reports as enumerated in the respective
patch changelog.

Changelog v2:
- Canonical measurement list support added
- Redefined the ima_kexec_hdr struct to use well defined sizes
