[PATCH 0/2] evm: disable EVM on overlayfs

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


EVM verifies the existing 'security.evm' value, before allowing it
to be updated.  The EVM HMAC and the original file signatures contain
filesystem specific metadata (e.g. i_ino, i_generation and s_uuid).

This poses a challenge when transitioning from the lower backing file
to the upper backing file.

Until a complete solution is developed, disable EVM on overlayfs.

  evm: don't copy up 'security.evm' xattr
  evm: add support to disable EVM on unsupported filesystems
