Subject[RFC][PATCH 00/16] Asymmetric / Public-key cryptography key type
Date

Hi Herbert, Rusty,

I've redone my crypto keys patches to be more specific, implementing an
asymmetric key type for containing the stuff required for public-key
cryptography and anything else one might want an asymmetric key for.

This facility can be used for module signing, firmware signing and eCryptfs.

The patches can be found here as well as following this covering note:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-modsign.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/crypto-keys-post-KS

I have arranged things such that:

(1) Keys of the asymmetric key type are just simple containers. They have
three attributes:

(a) A subtype.

(b) The data for the subtype. This is entirely defined by the subtype.

(c) A binary identifier (in addition to the usual text decription) that
can also be used to match the key.

(2) The asymmetric key subtype provides the mechanism used to operate with the
key. The mechanism can be entirely in-kernel, or can be offloaded to
hardware.

A completely software subtype is provided that can support a multiplicity
of public-key algorithms. One such algorithm is currently provided (RSA).

(3) Parsers can be registered that can take the instantiation data and turn it
into a subtype pointer, appropriate subtype data, a binary identifier and
a proposed description (keys can be auto-described).

An X.509 certificate parser is provided. It can be given a certificate
like this:

keyctl padd asymmetric "" @s </tmp/x509.cert

giving something like:

102492b2 I--Q--- 1 perm 39390000 0 0 asymmetri bfbc0cd76d050ea4:/C=GB/L=Cambridge/O=Red Hat/CN=kernel key: X509.RSA 0c688c7b []

Note that the X.509 parser uses the ASN.1 decoder and fast OID registry
patches.

I have dropped the PGP key parser for the moment.

Parsers can be provided that interpret the instantiation data to be a
pointer to where the key is actually stored (eg. a hardware key store).
Examples might be:

keyctl add asymmetric "" "tpm:bfbc0cd76d050ea4" @s
keyctl add asymmetric "" "uefi:bfbc0cd76d050ea4" @s

The parser could then, for example, extract the key from a key store and
set up for the software subtype or it could use a subtype that offloads
crypto operations to the hardware.

(4) The main interface for using it is in include/crypto/public_key.h.
Currently, there is one operation function provided: verify_signature() -
it takes a key, the parsed-out signature data and the signed data digest
and indicates whether the signature is valid or not.

(5) The sources are under crypto/ rather than security/ as that's a better fit
for them.

I wonder if I should rename the key type to public_key (rather than
asymmetric). I'm not sure what else it might be used for.
