MODSIGN: Provide a utility to append a PKCS#7 signature to a module
Provide a utility that: (1) Digests a module using the specified hash algorithm (typically sha256). [The digest can be dumped into a file by passing the '-d' flag] (2) Generates a PKCS#7 message that: (a) Has detached data (ie. the module content). (b) Is signed with the specified private key. (c) Refers to the specified X.509 certificate. (d) Has an empty X.509 certificate list. [The PKCS#7 message can be dumped into a file by passing the '-p' flag] (3) Generates a signed module by concatenating the old module, the PKCS#7 message, a descriptor and a magic string. The descriptor contains the size of the PKCS#7 message and indicates the id_type as PKEY_ID_PKCS7. (4) Either writes the signed module to the specified destination or renames it over the source module. This allows module signing to reuse the PKCS#7 handling code that was added for PE file parsing for signed kexec. Note that the utility is written in C and must be linked against the OpenSSL crypto library. Note further that I have temporarily dropped support for handling externally created signatures until we can work out the best way to do those. Hopefully, whoever creates the signature can give me a PKCS#7 certificate. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Tested-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com>
