You mentioned on the site about this patch and also emailed me earlier to use this patch. Can you please specify the behavior of this patch? I am already going through the code but your description can help. As far as I have figured out from the available docs, it uses LSM attributes so which attributes are they? Extended attributes?
As far as I have figured out it is the security contexts and the four functions (mentioned in linux-2.6/Documentation/ABI/testing/ima_policy) that can be specified to be "measure" or "dont_measure". Is there anything else apart from this? I will appreciate some explaination or references to the magic related to the filesystem points w.r.t ima_policy.
If you need any assistance for linux-ima website then do let me know because its lacking clarity and amount of documentation for rookies like myself.
My team is also troubleshooting some LTP problems. It seems that we are having problems due to a change in the distro. I do not like this explaination but we have done the mounting with iversion and the problem persists. I am giving it a run myself at the moment and will update that specific thread if I succeed.
