      ipv6: make IPV6_RECVPKTINFO work for ipv4 datagrams · 4b261c75
      Hannes Frederic Sowa authored
      We currently don't report IPV6_RECVPKTINFO in cmsg access ancillary data
      for IPv4 datagrams on IPv6 sockets.
      This patch splits the ip6_datagram_recv_ctl into two functions, one
      which handles both protocol families, AF_INET and AF_INET6, while the
      ip6_datagram_recv_specific_ctl only handles IPv6 cmsg data.
      ip6_datagram_recv_*_ctl never reported back any errors, so we can make
      them return void. Also provide a helper for protocols which don't offer dual
      personality to further use ip6_datagram_recv_ctl, which is exported to
      I needed to shuffle the code for ping around a bit to make it easier to
      implement dual personality for ping ipv6 sockets in future.

      net: ipv6: Add IPv6 support to the ping socket. · 6d0bfe22
      Lorenzo Colitti authored
      This adds the ability to send ICMPv6 echo requests without a
      raw socket. The equivalent ability for ICMPv4 was added in
      Instead of having separate code paths for IPv4 and IPv6, make
      most of the code in net/ipv4/ping.c dual-stack and only add a
      few IPv6-specific bits (like the protocol definition) to a new
      net/ipv6/ping.c. Hopefully this will reduce divergence and/or
      duplication of bugs in the future.
      - Setting options via ancillary data (e.g., using IPV6_PKTINFO
        to specify the outgoing interface) is not yet supported.
      - There are no separate security settings for IPv4 and IPv6;
        everything is controlled by /proc/net/ipv4/ping_group_range.
      - The proc interface does not yet display IPv6 ping sockets
      Tested with a patched copy of ping6 and using raw socket calls.
      Compiles and works with all of CONFIG_IPV6={n,m,y}.

      net: ipv4: add IPPROTO_ICMP socket kind · c319b4d7
      Vasiliy Kulikov authored
      This patch adds IPPROTO_ICMP socket kind.  It makes it possible to send
      ICMP_ECHO messages and receive the corresponding ICMP_ECHOREPLY messages
      without any special privileges.  In other words, the patch makes it
      possible to implement setuid-less and CAP_NET_RAW-less /bin/ping.  In
      order not to increase the kernel's attack surface, the new functionality
      is disabled by default, but is enabled at bootup by supporting Linux
      distributions, optionally with restriction to a group or a group range
      (see below).
      Similar functionality is implemented in Mac OS X:
      A new ping socket is created with
          socket(PF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, PROT_ICMP)
      Message identifiers (octets 4-5 of ICMP header) are interpreted as local
      ports. Addresses are stored in struct sockaddr_in. No port numbers are
      reserved for privileged processes, port 0 is reserved for API ("let the
      kernel pick a free number"). There is no notion of remote ports, remote
      port numbers provided by the user (e.g. in connect()) are ignored.
      Data sent and received include ICMP headers. This is deliberate to:
      1) Avoid the need to transport headers values like sequence numbers by
      other means.
      2) Make it easier to port existing programs using raw sockets.
      ICMP headers given to send() are checked and sanitized. The type must be
      ICMP_ECHO and the code must be zero (future extensions might relax this,
      see below). The id is set to the number (local port) of the socket, the
      checksum is always recomputed.
      ICMP reply packets received from the network are demultiplexed according
      to their id's, and are returned by recv() without any modifications.
      IP header information and ICMP errors of those packets may be obtained
      via ancillary data (IP_RECVTTL, IP_RETOPTS, and IP_RECVERR). ICMP source
      quenches and redirects are reported as fake errors via the error queue
      (IP_RECVERR); the next hop address for redirects is saved to ee_info (in
      network order).
      socket(2) is restricted to the group range specified in
      "/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ping_group_range".  It is "1 0" by default, meaning
      that nobody (not even root) may create ping sockets.  Setting it to "100
      100" would grant permissions to the single group (to either make
      /sbin/ping g+s and owned by this group or to grant permissions to the
      "netadmins" group), "0 4294967295" would enable it for the world, "100
      4294967295" would enable it for the users, but not daemons.
      The existing code might be (in the unlikely case anyone needs it)
      extended rather easily to handle other similar pairs of ICMP messages
      (Timestamp/Reply, Information Request/Reply, Address Mask Request/Reply
      Userspace ping util & patch for it:
      For Openwall GNU/*/Linux it was the last step on the road to the
      setuid-less distro.  A revision of this patch (for RHEL5/OpenVZ kernels)
      is in use in Owl-current, such as in the 2011/03/12 LiveCD ISOs:
      Initially this functionality was written by Pavel Kankovsky for
      Linux 2.4.32, but unfortunately it was never made public.
      All ping options (-b, -p, -Q, -R, -s, -t, -T, -M, -I), are tested with
      the patch.
      PATCH v3:
          - switched to flowi4.
          - minor changes to be consistent with raw sockets code.
      PATCH v2:
          - changed ping_debug() to pr_debug().
          - removed CONFIG_IP_PING.
          - removed ping_seq_fops.owner field (unused for procfs).
          - switched to proc_net_fops_create().
          - switched to %pK in seq_printf().
      PATCH v1:
          - fixed checksumming bug.
          - CAP_NET_RAW may not create icmp sockets anymore.
      RFC v2:
          - minor cleanups.
          - introduced sysctl'able group range to restrict socket(2).
