A keyring can be created by any user with any keyring name, other than
 ones dot prefixed, which are limited to the trusted builtin keyrings.
 With a policy of "func=KEY_CHECK template=ima-buf keyrings=foo", for
example, keys loaded onto any keyring named "foo" will be measured.
 For files, the IMA policy may be constrained to a particular uid/gid.
 An additional method of identifying or constraining keyring names
needs to be defined.
