Subject: [PATCH v2 9/9] ima: based on policy prevent loading firmware (pre-allocated buffer)
Date: Thu, 17 May 2018 10:48:50 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1526568530-9144-10-git-send-email-zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1526568530-9144-1-git-send-email-zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Question: can the device access the pre-allocated buffer at any time?

By allowing devices to request firmware be loaded directly into a
pre-allocated buffer, will this allow the device access to the firmware
before the kernel has verified the firmware signature?

Is it dependent on the type of buffer allocated (eg. DMA)?  For example,
qcom_mdt_load() -> qcom_scm_pas_init_image() -> dma_alloc_coherent().

With an IMA policy requiring signed firmware, this patch would prevent
loading firmware into a pre-allocated buffer.
