[RFC PATCH ghak21 0/4] audit: address ANOM_LINK excess records

Raw Message
Audit link denied events were being unexpectedly produced in a disjoint
way when audit was disabled, and when they were expected, there were
duplicate PATH records. This patchset addresses both issues for
symlinks and hardlinks.

This was introduced with
commit b24a30a7305418ff138ff51776fc555ec57c011a
("audit: fix event coverage of AUDIT_ANOM_LINK")
commit a51d9eaa41866ab6b4b6ecad7b621f8b66ece0dc
("fs: add link restriction audit reporting")

Here are the resulting events:

symlink:

The remaining problem is how to address this when syscall logging is
disabled since it needs a parent path record and/or a CWD record to
complete it. It could also use a proctitle record too. In fact, it
looks like we need a way to have multiple auxiliary records to support
an arbitrary record. Comments please.

Audit link denied events for symlinks had duplicate PATH records rather
than just updating the existing PATH record. Update the symlink's PATH
record with the current dentry and inode information.

Scratch that, not merged, although only because I think we need to
refactor patch 4/4 and the refactoring can/should encompass this
patch.

See my comments on 4/4.

It gets the full pathname string of the link, then converts it to a
struct filename*, and then below, we feed it that struct filename* with
the parent's dentry and the LOOKUP_PARENT flag to drop the last part of
the pathname and set the filetype to PARENT.

I didn't try, it, but I expect if I feed it parent's dentry above, I'd
get only the parent pathname and when I feed it to audit_inode() below
it would again drop the last part of the pathname when the LOOKUP_PARENT
flag is included, or not label it as a filetype PARENT if we don't
include the flag to get the full parent pathname.

Two things here:

1. We need to allocate a buffer to feed to d_absolute_path(), and
getname_kernel() is just going to make another copy so we need to make
sure we clean up after ourselves. Perhaps I missing it, but I'm not
seeing where we free the kmalloc'd buffer or call putname(). Feel
free to correct me if I'm missing something obvious.

2. While the audit_* calls are going to bail early in the cases where
audit is disabled, or not configured, we are going to pay the penalty
for the kmalloc() call above, as well as the getname_kernel() and
d_absolute_path() calls below. I think it might be beneficial to
create a new function (audit_log_symlink_denied() perhaps?) which
encapsulates all the audit bits in may_follow_link() and exits early
when needed. What do you think?

(Point #2 is why I didn't merge patch 3/4, just include it in this

That is put very diplomatically! Both fixed, with audit_panic() as
needed.

I agree a seperate function is appropriate. There was some back and
forth between namei.c and audit.c due to struct nameidata and
audit_panic() not able to co-exist due to them both being local to their
respective sub-systems.

only 3 is necessary.

Doesn't this means errors here would be silent if audit isn't enabled?
I don't that; sysadmins should see this notification regardless of the

This is a user error and not a system error, so I would think if system

We get beat up by several folks when we emit audit records with audit
disabled, and they have a very valid point.

I'm not arguing that the information isn't useful, I'm arguing that if
you are interested in the sort of information that audit provides you
should enable audit. :)

Self-NACK. Please un-merge this RFC v1 version and merge instead the v2
patch since it removes the now-unnecessary struct path * parameter from
audit_log_link_denied().

Audit link denied events were being unexpectedly produced in a disjoint
way when audit was disabled, and when they were expected, there were
duplicate PATH records. This patchset addresses both issues for
symlinks and hardlinks.
This was introduced with
commit b24a30a7305418ff138ff51776fc555ec57c011a
("audit: fix event coverage of AUDIT_ANOM_LINK")
commit a51d9eaa41866ab6b4b6ecad7b621f8b66ece0dc
("fs: add link restriction audit reporting")
Have these been tested with ausearch-test?

The remaining problem is how to address this when syscall logging is
disabled since it needs a parent path record and/or a CWD record to
complete it. It could also use a proctitle record too. In fact, it
looks like we need a way to have multiple auxiliary records to support
an arbitrary record. Comments please.
Perhaps this can only be emitted correctly with SYSCALL auditing enabled.
Otherwise, the event should stand completely on its own without syscall and
path records. The information from them can be added, but it risks hitting
the record size limit.

Agreed, but at the moment, removal of fields isn't possible unless there
is a conflict, and even then the value should simply be corrected if
possible.

As Paul just pointed out (which rang a bell...) in:
https://github.com/linux-audit/audit-kernel/issues/51#issuecomment-365759325
CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL is now forced on and if you sabbotage your
audit.rules with -a task,never, your warranty is void.

So now, the lurking questions in the back of my head about the
availability of syscall records has been alleviated and we should always
see a syscall record available unless an audit rule says we are not
interested.

Audit link denied events were being unexpectedly produced in a disjoint
way when audit was disabled, and when they were expected, there were
duplicate PATH records. This patchset addresses both issues for
symlinks and hardlinks.
This was introduced with
commit b24a30a7305418ff138ff51776fc555ec57c011a
("audit: fix event coverage of AUDIT_ANOM_LINK")
commit a51d9eaa41866ab6b4b6ecad7b621f8b66ece0dc
("fs: add link restriction audit reporting")
Have these been tested with ausearch-test?
Not yet.
I should have reported that a day or two later I ran the ausearch-test
which passed.

This record duplicates the SYSCALL event except for the op field. I would
suggest that is the only field needed.
Agreed, but at the moment, removal of fields isn't possible unless there
is a conflict, and even then the value should simply be corrected if
possible.

The remaining problem is how to address this when syscall logging is
disabled since it needs a parent path record and/or a CWD record to
complete it. It could also use a proctitle record too. In fact, it
looks like we need a way to have multiple auxiliary records to support
an arbitrary record. Comments please.
Perhaps this can only be emitted correctly with SYSCALL auditing enabled.
Otherwise, the event should stand completely on its own without syscall and
path records. The information from them can be added, but it risks hitting
the record size limit.
https://github.com/linux-audit/audit-kernel/issues/51#issuecomment-365759325
CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL is now forced on and if you sabbotage your
audit.rules with -a task,never, your warranty is void.
So now, the lurking questions in the back of my head about the
availability of syscall records has been alleviated and we should always
see a syscall record available unless an audit rule says we are not
interested.
