[PATCH 0/5 v2][RFC] Encryption and authentication for hibernate snapshot image

From: Lee, Chun-Yi
Date: Thu Jan 03 2019 - 09:32:40 EST


This patchset is the implementation of encryption and authentication
for hibernate snapshot image. The image will be encrypted by AES and
authenticated by HMAC.

The hibernate function can be used to snapshot memory pages to an image,
then kernel restores the image to memory space in a appropriate time.
There have secrets in snapshot image and cracker may modifies it for
hacking system. Encryption and authentication of snapshot image can protect
the system.

Hibernate function requests the master key through key retention service.
The snapshot master key can be a trusted key or a user defined key. The
name of snapshot master key is fixed to "swsusp-kmk". User should loads
swsusp-kmk to kernel by keyctl tool before the hibernation resume.
e.g. The swsusp-kmk must be loaded before systemd-hibernate-resume

The TPM trusted key type is preferred to be the master key. But user
defined key can also be used for testing or when the platform doesn't
have TPM. User must be aware that the security of user key relies on
user space. If the root account be compromised, then the user key will
easy to be grabbed.

- Fixed bug of trusted_key_init's return value.
- Fixed wording in Kconfig
- Removed VLA usage
- Removed the checking of capability for writing disk_kmk.
- Fixed Kconfig, select trusted key.
- Add memory barrier before setting key initialized flag.
- Add memory barrier after cleaning key initialized flag.
