We can continue the check. But in practice, all FILE__{READ|WRITE|EXECUTE} are needed for every enclave, then what's the point of checking them? FILE__EXECMOD may be the only flag that has a meaning, but it's kind of redundant because sigstruct file was checked against that already.

Thanks! I'd change them to PROT_EXEC in the next version.

*_noaudit() is exactly what I wanted. But I couldn't find selinux_file_mprotect_noaudit()/file_has_perm_noaudit(), and I'm reluctant to duplicate code. Any suggestions?

vma shall never be NULL. I'll update it in the next version.

Agreed. Another problem with FILE__EXECMOD on the sigstruct file is that user code would then be allowed to modify SIGSTRUCT at will, which effectively wipes out the protection provided by FILE__EXECUTE.

Agreed.

Now we've got 2 options - 1) New ENCLAVE__* flags on sigstruct file or 2) FILE__* on /dev/sgx/enclave. Which one do you think makes more sense?

ENCLAVE__EXECMEM seems to offer finer granularity (than PROCESS__EXECMEM) but I wonder if it'd have any real use in practice.

Probably because it was too late at night when I wrote this line:-( Good catch!

I can tell you have looked quite closely, and I truly think you for your time!

You are right that there are SGX specific stuff. More precisely, SGX enclaves don't have access to anything except memory, so there are only 3 questions that need to be answered for each enclave page: 1) whether X is allowed; 2) whether W->X is allowed and 3 whether WX is allowed. This proposal tries to cache the answers to those questions upon creation of each enclave page, meaning it involves a) figuring out the answers and b) "remember" them for every page. #b is generic, mostly captured in intel_sgx.c, and could be shared among all LSM modules; while #a is SELinux specific. I could move intel_sgx.c up one level in the directory hierarchy if that's what you'd suggest.

By "SGX", did you mean the SGX subsystem being upstreamed? It doesn’t track that state. In practice, there's no way for SGX to track it because there's no vm_ops->may_mprotect() callback. It doesn't follow the philosophy of Linux either, as mprotect() doesn't track it for regular memory. And it doesn't have a use without LSM, so I believe it makes more sense to track it inside LSM.
