|| ||[PATCH] keys & keyring management update patch|
|| ||Wed, 18 Aug 2004 15:07:33 +0100|
I've made available a patch that makes some alterations to my key management
stuff, mainly to support keyfs. The patch can be downloaded from:
Signed-Off-By: David Howells <firstname.lastname@example.org>
To summarise the changes in this patch:
(*) There are now five permissions instead of three, which makes things
easier. Hopefully it also means that people will stop thinking keys have
UNIX access permissions, which they do not.
(*) The key "chmod" operation is now "setperm".
(*) fsuid/fsgid are now used instead of euid/egid when using permissions.
(*) Some stuff has been moved from the internal header file into
include/linux/key-ui.h to make it available to keyfs.
(*) /proc/keys is now disabled by default. It pretends keys don't exist
unless you have at least one permission on them.
