+MKTME Key Service API
+=====================
+MKTME is a new key service type added to the Linux Kernel Key Service.
+
+The MKTME Key Service type is available when CONFIG_X86_INTEL_MKTME is
+turned on in Intel platforms that support the MKTME feature.
+
+The MKTME Key Service type manages the allocation of hardware encryption
+keys. Users can request an MKTME type key and then use that key to
+encrypt memory with the encrypt_mprotect() system call.
+
+Usage
+-----
+ When using the Kernel Key Service to request an *mktme* key,
+ specify the *payload* as follows:
+
+ type=
+ *user* User will supply the encryption key data. Use this
+ type to directly program a hardware encryption key.
+
+ *cpu* User requests a CPU generated encryption key.
+ The CPU generates and assigns an ephemeral key.
+
+ *no-encrypt*
+ User requests that hardware does not encrypt
+ memory when this key is in use.
+
+ algorithm=
+ When type=user or type=cpu the algorithm field must be
+ *aes-xts-128*
+
+ When type=clear or type=no-encrypt the algorithm field
+ must not be present in the payload.
+
+ key=
+ When type=user the user must supply a 128 bit encryption
+ key as exactly 32 ASCII hexadecimal characters.
+
+ When type=cpu the user may optionally supply 128 bits of
+ entropy for the CPU generated encryption key in this field.
+ It must be exactly 32 ASCII hexadecimal characters.
+
+ When type=no-encrypt this key field must not be present
+ in the payload.
+
+ tweak=
+ When type=user the user must supply a 128 bit tweak key
+ as exactly 32 ASCII hexadecimal characters.
+
+ When type=cpu the user may optionally supply 128 bits of
+ entropy for the CPU generated tweak key in this field.
+ It must be exactly 32 ASCII hexadecimal characters.
+
+ When type=no-encrypt the tweak field must not be present
+ in the payload.
+
+ERRORS
+------
+ In addition to the Errors returned from the Kernel Key Service,
+ add_key(2) or keyctl(1) commands, the MKTME Key Service type may
+ return the following errors:
+
+ EINVAL for any payload specification that does not match the
+ MKTME type payload as defined above.
+
+ EACCES for access denied. The MKTME key type uses capabilities
+ to restrict the allocation of keys to privileged users.
+ CAP_SYS_RESOURCE is required, but it will accept the
+ broader capability of CAP_SYS_ADMIN. See capabilities(7).
+
+ ENOKEY if a hardware key cannot be allocated. Additional error
+ messages will describe the hardware programming errors.
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+ Add a 'user' type key::
+
+ char \*options_USER = "type=user
+ algorithm=aes-xts-128
+ key=12345678912345671234567891234567
+ tweak=12345678912345671234567891234567";
+
+ key = add_key("mktme", "name", options_USER, strlen(options_USER),
+ KEY_SPEC_THREAD_KEYRING);
+
+ Add a 'cpu' type key::
+
+ char \*options_USER = "type=cpu algorithm=aes-xts-128";
+
+ key = add_key("mktme", "name", options_CPU, strlen(options_CPU),
+ KEY_SPEC_THREAD_KEYRING);
+
+ Add a "no-encrypt' type key::
+
+ key = add_key("mktme", "name", "no-encrypt", strlen(options_CPU),
+ KEY_SPEC_THREAD_KEYRING);
