[PATCH v7 0/5] tpm: retrieve digest size of unknown algorithms from TPM

From: Roberto Sassu
Date: Thu Dec 13 2018 - 05:32:45 EST


This version of the patch set includes an additional patch (7/7) which
modifies the definition of tpm_pcr_extend() and tpm2_pcr_extend(). The new
patch has been included to facilitate the review of the changes to support
TPM 2.0 crypto agility for reading/extending PCRs.

Original patch set description

The TPM driver currently relies on the crypto subsystem to determine the
digest size of supported TPM algorithms. In the future, TPM vendors might
implement new algorithms in their chips, and those algorithms might not
be supported by the crypto subsystem.

Usually, vendors provide patches for the new hardware, and likely
the crypto subsystem will be updated before the new algorithm is
introduced. However, old kernels might be updated later, after patches
are included in the mainline kernel. This would leave the opportunity
for attackers to misuse PCRs, as PCR banks with an unknown algorithm
are not extended.

This patch set provides a long term solution for this issue. If a TPM
algorithm is not known by the crypto subsystem, the TPM driver retrieves
the digest size from the TPM with a PCR read. All the PCR banks are
extended, even if the algorithm is not yet supported by the crypto

PCR bank information (TPM algorithm ID, digest size, crypto subsystem ID)
is stored in the tpm_chip structure and available for users of the TPM


- squash patches 4-6
- rename tpm_bank_list to tpm_extend_digest, extend_size and extend_data
members to size and data
- add comment in tpm2_init_bank_info()

- rename digest_struct variable to digest
- add _head suffix to tcg_efi_specid_event and tcg_pcr_event2
- rename digest_size member of tpm_bank_list to extend_size
- change type of alg_id member of tpm_bank_list from u8 to u16
- add missing semi-colon in pcrlock()

- rename active_banks to allocated_banks
- replace kmalloc_array() with kcalloc()
- increment nr_allocated_banks if at least one PCR in the bank is selected
- pass multiple digests to tpm_pcr_extend()

- remove end marker change
- replace active_banks static array with pointer to dynamic array

- change the end marker of the active_banks array
- check digest size from output of PCR read command
- remove count parameter from tpm_pcr_read() and tpm2_pcr_read()

- modify definition of tpm_pcr_read()
- move hash algorithms and definition of tpm2_digest to include/linux/tpm.h

Roberto Sassu (5):
tpm: dynamically allocate the allocated_banks array
tpm: add _head suffix to tcg_efi_specid_event and tcg_pcr_event2
tpm: rename and export tpm2_digest and tpm2_algorithms
tpm: retrieve digest size of unknown algorithms with PCR read
tpm: pass an array of tpm_extend_digest structures to tpm_pcr_extend()
