[PATCH net v3 0/2] security: fixups for the security hooks in sctp

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


This is a third round of patches to fix the SCTP-SELinux interaction
w.r.t. client-side peeloff. The patches are a modified version of Xin
Long's patches posted previously, of which only a part was merged (the
rest was merged for a while, but was later reverted):

In gist, these patches replace the call to
security_inet_conn_established() in SCTP with a new hook
security_sctp_assoc_established() and implement the new hook in SELinux
so that the client-side association labels are set correctly (which
matters in case the association eventually gets peeled off into a
separate socket).

Note that other LSMs than SELinux don't implement the SCTP hooks nor
inet_conn_established, so they shouldn't be affected by any of these

These patches were tested by selinux-testsuite [1] with an additional
patch [2] and by lksctp-tools func_tests [3].

Changes since v2:
- patches 1 and 2 dropped as they are already in mainline (not reverted)
- in patch 3, the return value of security_sctp_assoc_established() is
  changed to int, the call is moved earlier in the function, and if the
  hook returns an error value, the packet will now be discarded,
  aborting the association
- patch 4 has been changed a lot - please see the patch description for
  details on how the hook is now implemented and why
