Andrew, can you please consider to merge this into your tree? Overview ======== The final goal of this patch series is to enable the kernel to be a global policy manager by entrusting processes with access control at their level. To reach this goal, two complementary parts are required: * user space needs to be able to know if it can trust some file descriptor content for a specific usage; * and the kernel needs to make available some part of the policy configured by the system administrator. Primary goal of trusted_for(2) ============================== This new syscall enables user space to ask the kernel: is this file descriptor's content trusted to be used for this purpose? The set of usage currently only contains execution, but other may follow (e.g. configuration, sensitive data). If the kernel identifies the file descriptor as trustworthy for this usage, user space should then take this information into account. The "execution" usage means that the content of the file descriptor is trusted according to the system policy to be executed by user space, which means that it interprets the content or (try to) maps it as executable memory. A simple system-wide security policy can be set by the system administrator through a sysctl configuration consistent with the mount points or the file access rights. The documentation explains the prerequisites. It is important to note that this can only enable to extend access control managed by the kernel. Hence it enables current access control mechanism to be extended and become a superset of what they can currently control. Indeed, the security policy could also be delegated to an LSM, either a MAC system or an integrity system. For instance, this is required to close a major IMA measurement/appraisal interpreter integrity gap by bringing the ability to check the use of scripts . Other uses are expected, such as for magic-links , SGX integration , bpffs . Complementary W^X protections can be brought by SELinux, IPE  and trampfd . System call description ======================= trusted_for(int fd, enum trusted_for_usage usage, u32 flags); @fd is the file descriptor to check. @usage identifies the user space usage intended for @fd: only TRUSTED_FOR_EXECUTION for now, but trusted_for_usage could be extended to identify other usages (e.g. configuration, sensitive data). @flags must be 0 for now but it could be used in the future to do complementary checks (e.g. signature or integrity requirements, origin of the file). This system call returns 0 on success, or -EACCES if the kernel policy denies the specified usage (which should be enforced by the caller). The first patch contains the full syscall and sysctl documentation. Prerequisite of its use ======================= User space needs to adapt to take advantage of this new feature. For example, the PEP 578  (Runtime Audit Hooks) enables Python 3.8 to be extended with policy enforcement points related to code interpretation, which can be used to align with the PowerShell audit features. Additional Python security improvements (e.g. a limited interpreter without -c, stdin piping of code) are on their way . Examples ======== The initial idea comes from CLIP OS 4 and the original implementation has been used for more than 13 years: https://github.com/clipos-archive/clipos4_doc Chrome OS has a similar approach: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/docs/+/master/security/noexec_shell_scripts.md Userland patches can be found here: https://github.com/clipos-archive/clipos4_portage-overlay/search?q=O_MAYEXEC Actually, there is more than the O_MAYEXEC changes (which matches this search) e.g., to prevent Python interactive execution. There are patches for Bash, Wine, Java (Icedtea), Busybox's ash, Perl and Python. There are also some related patches which do not directly rely on O_MAYEXEC but which restrict the use of browser plugins and extensions, which may be seen as scripts too: https://github.com/clipos-archive/clipos4_portage-overlay/tree/master/www-client An introduction to O_MAYEXEC was given at the Linux Security Summit Europe 2018 - Linux Kernel Security Contributions by ANSSI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chNjCRtPKQY&t=17m15s The "write xor execute" principle was explained at Kernel Recipes 2018 - CLIP OS: a defense-in-depth OS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjRE0uBtkHU&t=11m14s See also a first LWN article about O_MAYEXEC and a new one about trusted_for(2) and its background: * https://lwn.net/Articles/820000/ * https://lwn.net/Articles/832959/ This can be tested with CONFIG_SYSCTL. I would really appreciate constructive comments on this patch series.
