[PATCH v4 0/3] Replay Protected Memory Block (RPMB) subsystem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



This patch set introduces a new RPMB subsystem, based on patches from [1],
[2], and [3]. The RPMB subsystem aims at providing access to RPMB
partitions to other kernel drivers, in particular the OP-TEE driver. A new
user space ABI isn't needed, we can instead continue using the already
present ABI when writing the RPMB key during production.

I've added and removed things to keep only what is needed by the OP-TEE
driver. Since the posting of [3], there has been major changes in the MMC
subsystem so "mmc: block: register RPMB partition with the RPMB subsystem"
is in practice completely rewritten.

With this OP-TEE can access RPMB during early boot instead of having to
wait for user space to become available as in the current design [4].
This will benefit the efi variables [5] since we wont rely on userspace as
well as some TPM issues [6] that were solved.

The OP-TEE driver finds the correct RPMB device to interact with by
iterating over available devices until one is found with a programmed
authentication matching the one OP-TEE is using. This enables coexisting
users of other RPMBs since the owner can be determined by who knows the
authentication key.

The corresponding secure world OP-TEE patches are available at [7].

I've put myself as a maintainer for the RPMB subsystem as I have an
interest in the OP-TEE driver to keep this in good shape. However, if you'd
rather see someone else taking the maintainership that's fine too. I'll
help keep the subsystem updated regardless.

Changes since v3:
* Move struct rpmb_frame into the MMC driver since the format of the RPMB
  frames depend on the implementation, one format for eMMC, another for
  UFS, and so on
* "rpmb: add Replay Protected Memory Block (RPMB) subsystem"
  - Adding Reviewed-by: Linus Walleij <linus.walleij@xxxxxxxxxx>
  - Adding more description of the API functions
  - Removing the set_dev_info() op from struct rpmb_ops, the needed information
    is supplied in the arguments to rpmb_dev_register() instead.
  - Getting rid of struct rpmb_ops since only the route_frames() op was
    remaining, store that op directly in struct rpmb_dev
  - Changed rpmb_interface_register() and rpmb_interface_unregister() to use
    notifier_block instead of implementing the same thing ourselves
* "mmc: block: register RPMB partition with the RPMB subsystem"
  - Moving the call to rpmb_dev_register() to be done at the end of
    mmc_blk_probe() when the device is fully available
* "optee: probe RPMB device using RPMB subsystem"
  - Use IS_REACHABLE(CONFIG_RPMB) to determine if the RPMB subsystem is
  - Translate TEE_ERROR_STORAGE_NOT_AVAILABLE if encountered in get_devices()
    to recognize the error in optee_rpmb_scan()
  - Simplified optee_rpmb_scan() and optee_rpmb_intf_rdev()

Changes since v2:
* "rpmb: add Replay Protected Memory Block (RPMB) subsystem"
  - Fixing documentation issues
  - Adding a "depends on MMC" in the Kconfig
  - Removed the class-device and the embedded device, struct rpmb_dev now
    relies on the parent device for reference counting as requested
  - Removed the now unneeded rpmb_ops get_resources() and put_resources()
    since references are already taken in mmc_blk_alloc_rpmb_part() before
    rpmb_dev_register() is called
  - Added rpmb_interface_{,un}register() now that
    class_interface_{,un}register() can't be used ay longer
* "mmc: block: register RPMB partition with the RPMB subsystem"
  - Adding the missing error cleanup in alloc_idata()
  - Taking the needed reference to md->disk in mmc_blk_alloc_rpmb_part()
    instead of in mmc_rpmb_chrdev_open() and rpmb_op_mmc_get_resources()
* "optee: probe RPMB device using RPMB subsystem"
  - Registering to get a notification when an RPMB device comes online
  - Probes for RPMB devices each time an RPMB device comes online, until
    a usable device is found
  - When a usable RPMB device is found, call
  - Pass type of rpmb in return value from OPTEE_RPC_CMD_RPMB_PROBE_NEXT

Changes since Shyam's RFC:
* Removed the remaining leftover rpmb_cdev_*() function calls
* Refactored the struct rpmb_ops with all the previous ops replaced, in
  some sense closer to [3] with the route_frames() op
* Added rpmb_route_frames()
* Added struct rpmb_frame, enum rpmb_op_result, and enum rpmb_type from [3]
* Removed all functions not needed in the OP-TEE use case
* Added "mmc: block: register RPMB partition with the RPMB subsystem", based
  on the commit with the same name in [3]
* Added "optee: probe RPMB device using RPMB subsystem" for integration
  with OP-TEE
* Moved the RPMB driver into drivers/misc/rpmb-core.c
* Added my name to MODULE_AUTHOR() in rpmb-core.c
* Added an rpmb_mutex to serialize access to the IDA
* Removed the target parameter from all rpmb_*() functions since it's
  currently unused
