This adds the ability audit the actions of a not-yet-running process. This patch implements the ability to filter on the executable path. Instead of just hard coding the ino and dev of the executable we care about at the moment the rule is inserted into the kernel, use the new audit_fsnotify infrastructure to manage this dynamically. This means that if the filename does not yet exist but the containing directory does, or if the inode in question is unlinked and creat'd (aka updated) the rule will just continue to work. If the containing directory is moved or deleted or the filesystem is unmounted, the rule is deleted automatically. A future enhancement would be to have the rule survive across directory disruptions.

2015-07-08Fix broken audit tests for exec arg lenLinus Torvalds-2/+1
The "fix" in commit 0b08c5e5944 ("audit: Fix check of return value of strnlen_user()") didn't fix anything, it broke things. As reported by Steven Rostedt: "Yes, strnlen_user() returns 0 on fault, but if you look at what len is set to, than you would notice that on fault len would be -1" because we just subtracted one from the return value. So testing against 0 doesn't test for a fault condition, it tests against a perfectly valid empty string. Also fix up the usual braindamage wrt using WARN_ON() inside a conditional - make it part of the conditional and remove the explicit unlikely() (which is already part of the WARN_ON*() logic, exactly so that you don't have to write unreadable code.

2015-01-23audit: replace getname()/putname() hacks with reference countersPaul Moore-94/+11
In order to ensure that filenames are not released before the audit subsystem is done with the strings there are a number of hacks built into the fs and audit subsystems around getname() and putname(). To say these hacks are "ugly" would be kind. This patch removes the filename hackery in favor of a more conventional reference count based approach. The diffstat below tells most of the story; lots of audit/fs specific code is replaced with a traditional reference count based approach that is easily understood, even by those not familiar with the audit and/or fs subsystems.

Unfortunately, while commit 4a928436 ("audit: correctly record file names with different path name types") fixed a problem where we were not recording filenames, it created a new problem by attempting to use these file names after they had been freed. This patch resolves the issue by creating a copy of the filename which the audit subsystem frees after it is done with the string. At some point it would be nice to resolve this issue with refcounts, or something similar, instead of having to allocate/copy strings, but that is almost surely beyond the scope of a -rcX patch so we'll defer that for later.

2014-12-22audit: correctly record file names with different path name typesPaul Moore-4/+10
There is a problem with the audit system when multiple audit records are created for the same path, each with a different path name type. The root cause of the problem is in __audit_inode() when an exact match (both the path name and path name type) is not found for a path name record; the existing code creates a new path name record, but it never sets the path name in this record, leaving it NULL. This patch corrects this problem by assigning the path name to these newly created records. There are many ways to reproduce this problem, but one of the easiest is the following (assuming auditd is running): # mkdir /root/tmp/test # touch /root/tmp/test/567 # auditctl -a always,exit -F dir=/root/tmp/test # touch /root/tmp/test/567 Afterwards, or while the commands above are running, check the audit log and pay special attention to the PATH records. A faulty kernel will display something like the following for the file creation: type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1416957442.025:93): arch=c000003e syscall=2 success=yes exit=3 ... comm="touch" exe="/usr/bin/touch" type=CWD msg=audit(1416957442.025:93): cwd="/root/tmp" type=PATH msg=audit(1416957442.025:93): item=0 name="test/" inode=401409 ... nametype=PARENT type=PATH msg=audit(1416957442.025:93): item=1 name=(null) inode=393804 ... nametype=NORMAL type=PATH msg=audit(1416957442.025:93): item=2 name=(null) inode=393804 ... nametype=NORMAL While a patched kernel will show the following: type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1416955786.566:89): arch=c000003e syscall=2 success=yes exit=3 ... comm="touch" exe="/usr/bin/touch" type=CWD msg=audit(1416955786.566:89): cwd="/root/tmp" type=PATH msg=audit(1416955786.566:89): item=0 name="test/" inode=401409 ... nametype=PARENT type=PATH msg=audit(1416955786.566:89): item=1 name="test/567" inode=393804 ... nametype=NORMAL This issue was brought up by a number of people, but special credit should go to for reporting the problem along with an explanation of the problem and a patch.

Pull audit updates from Eric Paris: "So this change across a whole bunch of arches really solves one basic problem. We want to audit when seccomp is killing a process. seccomp hooks in before the audit syscall entry code. audit_syscall_entry took as an argument the arch of the given syscall. Since the arch is part of what makes a syscall number meaningful it's an important part of the record, but it isn't available when seccomp shoots the syscall... For most arch's we have a better way to get the arch (syscall_get_arch) So the solution was two fold: Implement syscall_get_arch() everywhere there is audit which didn't have it. Use syscall_get_arch() in the seccomp audit code. Having syscall_get_arch() everywhere meant it was a useless flag on the stack and we could get rid of it for the typical syscall entry.

2014-03-20audit: Audit proc/<pid>/cmdline aka proctitleWilliam Roberts-0/+67
During an audit event, cache and print the value of the process's proctitle value (proc/<pid>/cmdline). This is useful in situations where processes are started via fork'd virtual machines where the comm field is incorrect. Often times, setting the comm field still is insufficient as the comm width is not very wide and most virtual machine "package names" do not fit. Also, during execution, many threads have their comm field set as well. By tying it back to the global cmdline value for the process, audit records will be more complete in systems with these properties. An example of where this is useful and applicable is in the realm of Android. With Android, their is no fork/exec for VM instances. The bare, preloaded Dalvik VM listens for a fork and specialize request. When this request comes in, the VM forks, and the loads the specific application (specializing). This was done to take advantage of COW and to not require a load of basic packages by the VM on very app spawn. When this spawn occurs, the package name is set via setproctitle() and shows up in procfs. Many of these package names are longer then 16 bytes, the historical width of task->comm. Having the cmdline in the audit records will couple the application back to the record directly. Also, on my Debian development box, some audit records were more useful then what was printed under comm. The cached proctitle is tied to the life-cycle of the audit_context structure and is built on demand. Proctitle is controllable by userspace, and thus should not be trusted. It is meant as an aid to assist in debugging. The proctitle event is emitted during syscall audits, and can be filtered with auditctl.

The controlled lifetime of the executable name also fixes a use-after-free problem with the trace_sched_process_exec tracepoint: the lifetime of the passed-in string for kernel users was not at all obvious, and the user-mode helper code used UMH_WAIT_EXEC to serialize the pathname allocation lifetime with the execve() having finished, which in turn meant that the trace point that happened after mm_release() of the old process VM ended up using already free'd memory. To solve the kernel string lifetime issue, this simply introduces "getname_kernel()" that works like the normal user-space getname() function, except with the source coming from kernel memory. As Oleg points out, this also means that we could drop the tcomm[] array from 'struct linux_binprm', since the pathname lifetime now covers setup_new_exec(). That would be a separate cleanup.

2014-01-13audit: fix dangling keywords in audit_log_set_loginuid() outputRichard Guy Briggs-6/+9
Remove spaces between "new", "old" label modifiers and "auid", "ses" labels in log output since userspace tools can't parse orphaned keywords. Make variable names more consistent and intuitive. Make audit_log_format() argument code easier to read. Signed-off-by: Richard Guy Briggs <> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <>
2014-01-13audit: convert all sessionid declaration to unsigned intEric Paris-1/+1
Right now the sessionid value in the kernel is a combination of u32, int, and unsigned int. Just use unsigned int throughout. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <> Signed-off-by: Richard Guy Briggs <> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <>
2014-01-13audit: Added exe field to audit core dump signal logPaul Davies C-0/+8
Currently when the coredump signals are logged by the audit system, the actual path to the executable is not logged. Without details of exe, the system admin may not have an exact idea on what program failed. This patch changes the audit_log_task() so that the path to the exe is also logged. This was copied from audit_log_task_info() and the latter enhanced to avoid disappearing text fields. Signed-off-by: Paul Davies C <> Signed-off-by: Richard Guy Briggs <> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <>
2014-01-13audit: drop audit_log_abend()Paul Davies C-8/+2
The audit_log_abend() is used only by the audit_core_dumps(). Thus there is no need of maintaining the audit_log_abend() as a separate function. This patch drops the audit_log_abend() and pushes its functionalities back to the audit_core_dumps(). Apart from that the "reason" field is also dropped from being logged since the reason can be deduced from the signal number.
