"TOMOYO Linux" is our work in the field of security enhancement for Linux. This is the 6th submission of TOMOYO Linux. (http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/wiki-e/?WhatIs#mainlining)
Changes since previous (November 17th) submission:
The possibility of AB-BA deadlock has been pointed out and argued in
We believe that LSM functions shouldn't access namespace_sem, so we chose to write a set of wrapper functions to pass "struct vfsmount" to LSM functions using "struct task_struct". This method is suggested at http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg01712.html .
We wish Linux to merge either AppArmor's "Pass struct vfsmount to ..." patches or our patches marked as [02/21], [03/21], [04/21] into mainline kernel so that AppArmor and TOMOYO Linux can safely access "struct vfsmount" from LSM.
Patches consist of five types.
We are trying to make a fair °»secure Linux°… comparison table, it should explain the differences between TOMOYO Linux and AppArmor. (http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/wiki-e/?WhatIs#comparison)
We would like TOMOYO Linux to be added into -mm tree so that more people can try. Any kind of feedbacks for the patches and the table would be appreciated. -- - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-security-module" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
