Subject[RFC PATCH v1 0/5] Add support for O_MAYEXEC
Date
Hi,

The goal of this patch series is to control script interpretation. A
new O_MAYEXEC flag used by sys_open() is added to enable userland script
interpreter to delegate to the kernel (and thus the system security
policy) the permission to interpret scripts or other files containing
what can be seen as commands.

The security policy is the responsibility of an LSM. A basic
system-wide policy is implemented with Yama and configurable through a
sysctl.

The initial idea come from CLIP OS and the original implementation has
been used for more than 10 years:
https://github.com/clipos-archive/clipos4_doc

An introduction to O_MAYEXEC was given at the Linux Security Summit
Europe 2018 - Linux Kernel Security Contributions by ANSSI:

The "write xor execute" principle was explained at Kernel Recipes 2018 -

This patch series can be applied on top of v4.20-rc6. This can be
tested with CONFIG_SECURITY_YAMA. I would really appreciate
constructive comments on this RFC.

Regards,

Mickaël Salaün (5):
fs: Add support for an O_MAYEXEC flag on sys_open()
fs: Add a MAY_EXECMOUNT flag to infer the noexec mount propertie
Yama: Enforces noexec mounts or file executability through O_MAYEXEC
selftest/yama: Add tests for O_MAYEXEC enforcing
doc: Add documentation for Yama's open_mayexec_enforce
