Subject[PATCH 4.13 64/85] KEYS: dont let add_key() update an uninstantiated key
Date
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

commit 60ff5b2f547af3828aebafd54daded44cfb0807a upstream.

Currently, when passed a key that already exists, add_key() will call the
key's ->update() method if such exists. But this is heavily broken in the
case where the key is uninstantiated because it doesn't call
__key_instantiate_and_link(). Consequently, it doesn't do most of the
things that are supposed to happen when the key is instantiated, such as
setting the instantiation state, clearing KEY_FLAG_USER_CONSTRUCT and
awakening tasks waiting on it, and incrementing key->user->nikeys.

It also never takes key_construction_mutex, which means that
->instantiate() can run concurrently with ->update() on the same key. In
the case of the "user" and "logon" key types this causes a memory leak, at
best. Maybe even worse, the ->update() methods of the "encrypted" and
"trusted" key types actually just dereference a NULL pointer when passed an
uninstantiated key.

Change key_create_or_update() to wait interruptibly for the key to finish
construction before continuing.

This patch only affects *uninstantiated* keys. For now we still allow a
negatively instantiated key to be updated (thereby positively
instantiating it), although that's broken too (the next patch fixes it)
and I'm not sure that anyone actually uses that functionality either.

Here is a simple reproducer for the bug using the "encrypted" key type
(requires CONFIG_ENCRYPTED_KEYS=y), though as noted above the bug
pertained to more than just the "encrypted" key type:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <keyutils.h>

int main(void)
{
int ringid = keyctl_join_session_keyring(NULL);

if (fork()) {
for (;;) {
const char payload[] = "update user:foo 32";

usleep(rand() % 10000);
add_key("encrypted", "desc", payload, sizeof(payload), ringid);
keyctl_clear(ringid);
}
} else {
for (;;)
request_key("encrypted", "desc", "callout_info", ringid);
}
}

It causes:
