      keys: add new trusted key-type · d00a1c72
      Mimi Zohar authored
      Define a new kernel key-type called 'trusted'.  Trusted keys are random
      number symmetric keys, generated and RSA-sealed by the TPM.  The TPM
      only unseals the keys, if the boot PCRs and other criteria match.
      Userspace can only ever see encrypted blobs.
      Based on suggestions by Jason Gunthorpe, several new options have been
      added to support additional usages.
      The new options are:
      migratable=  designates that the key may/may not ever be updated
                   (resealed under a new key, new pcrinfo or new auth.)
      pcrlock=n    extends the designated PCR 'n' with a random value,
                   so that a key sealed to that PCR may not be unsealed
                   again until after a reboot.
      keyhandle=   specifies the sealing/unsealing key handle.
      keyauth=     specifies the sealing/unsealing key auth.
      blobauth=    specifies the sealed data auth.
      Implementation of a kernel reserved locality for trusted keys will be
      investigated for a possible future extension.
      - Updated and added examples to Documentation/keys-trusted-encrypted.txt
      - Moved generic TPM constants to include/linux/tpm_command.h
        (David Howell's suggestion.)
      - trusted_defined.c: replaced kzalloc with kmalloc, added pcrlock failure
        error handling, added const qualifiers where appropriate.
      - moved to late_initcall
      - updated from hash to shash (suggestion by David Howells)
      - reduced worst stack usage (tpm_seal) from 530 to 312 bytes
      - moved documentation to Documentation directory (suggestion by David Howells)
      - all the other code cleanups suggested by David Howells
      - Add pcrlock CAP_SYS_ADMIN dependency (based on comment by Jason Gunthorpe)
      - New options: migratable, pcrlock, keyhandle, keyauth, blobauth (based on
        discussions with Jason Gunthorpe)
      - Free payload on failure to create key(reported/fixed by Roberto Sassu)
      - Updated Kconfig and other descriptions (based on Serge Hallyn's suggestion)
      - Replaced kzalloc() with kmalloc() (reported by Serge Hallyn)
