Gmane
From: Mimi Zohar <zohar <at> linux.vnet.ibm.com>
Subject: [PATCH 00/10] ima: enforcing appraise type
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.lsm
Date: Tuesday 18th December 2012 15:39:44 UTC (over 4 years ago)
The IMA-appraisal extension added local integrity validation and
enforcement of the measurement against a "good" value stored as an
extended attribute 'security.ima'.  The initial methods for validating
'security.ima' were hash and digital signature based.

Missing is the ability to specify the validation method required. This
patch set addresses this omission, by defining a new policy option
'appraise_type='.  

As a result of this change, appraisal rules now can be written on a
per hook basis, resulting in different appraisal status results.  The 
'ima_appraise_tcb' policy appraises all files owned by root.  A new
hook specific rule could specify that all kernel modules, for example,
require a digital signature.  This patch set caches the appraisal result
on a per hook basis.
