[PATCH net 4/6] netfilter: nf_tables: restrict anonymous set and map names to 16 bytes

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


From: Florian Westphal <fw@xxxxxxxxx>

nftables has two types of sets/maps, one where userspace defines the
name, and anonymous sets/maps, where userspace defines a template name.

For the latter, kernel requires presence of exactly one "%d".
nftables uses "__set%d" and "__map%d" for this.  The kernel will
expand the format specifier and replaces it with the smallest unused

As-is, userspace could define a template name that allows to move
the set name past the 256 bytes upperlimit (post-expansion).

I don't see how this could be a problem, but I would prefer if userspace
cannot do this, so add a limit of 16 bytes for the '%d' template name.

16 bytes is the old total upper limit for set names that existed when
nf_tables was merged initially.
