I still have any doubts about patch 3, any advice? RFC v1 -> RFC v2: - added 'restricted' flag in the ctx [Jens] - added IORING_MAX_RESTRICTIONS define - returned EBUSY instead of EINVAL when restrictions are already registered - reset restrictions if an error happened during the registration - removed return value of io_sq_offload_start() RFC v1: https://firstname.lastname@example.org Following the proposal that I send about restrictions , I wrote this series to add restrictions in io_uring. I also wrote helpers in liburing and a test case (test/register-restrictions.c) available in this repository: https://github.com/stefano-garzarella/liburing (branch: io_uring_restrictions) Just to recap the proposal, the idea is to add some restrictions to the operations (sqe, register, fixed file) to safely allow untrusted applications or guests to use io_uring queues. The first patch changes io_uring_register(2) opcodes into an enumeration to keep track of the last opcode available. The second patch adds IOURING_REGISTER_RESTRICTIONS opcode and the code to handle restrictions. The third patch adds IORING_SETUP_R_DISABLED flag to start the rings disabled, allowing the user to register restrictions, buffers, files, before to start processing SQEs. I'm not sure if this could help seccomp. An alternative pointed out by Jann Horn could be to register restrictions during io_uring_setup(2), but this requires some intrusive changes (there is no space in the struct io_uring_params to pass a pointer to restriction arrays, maybe we can add a flag and add the pointer at the end of the struct io_uring_params). Another limitation now is that I need to enable every time IORING_REGISTER_ENABLE_RINGS in the restrictions to be able to start the rings, I'm not sure if we should treat it as an exception. Maybe registering restrictions during io_uring_setup(2) could solve both issues (seccomp integration and IORING_REGISTER_ENABLE_RINGS registration), but I need some suggestions to properly extend the io_uring_setup(2). Comments and suggestions are very welcome.
