[Qemu-devel] [V7 PATCH 0/9] virtio-9p: Use chroot to safely access files

From: M. Mohan Kumar
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [V7 PATCH 0/9] virtio-9p: Use chroot to safely access files in passthrough security model
Date: Fri, 4 Mar 2011 14:55:47 +0530

In passthrough security model, following symbolic links in the server
side could result in TOCTTOU vulnerabilities.

This patchset resolves this issue by creating a dedicated process which
chroots into the share path and all file object access is done in the
chroot environment.

This patchset implements chroot enviroment, provides necessary functions
that can be used by the passthrough function calls.

Changes from version V6:
* Send only fd/errno in socket operations instead of FdInfo structure
* Minor cleanups

Changes from version V5:
* Return errno on failure instead of setting errno
* Minor cleanups like updated comments, enable CONFIG_THREAD if
  CONFIG_VIRTFS is enabled

Changes from version V4:
* Avoid using malloc/free inside chroot process
* Seperate chroot server and client functions

Changes from version V3
* Return EIO incase of socket read/write fail instead of exiting
* Changed data types as suggested by Blue Swirl
* Chroot process reports error through qemu process

Changes from version V2
* Treat socket IO errors as fatal, ie qemu will exit
* Split patchset based on chroot side (server) and qemu side(client)
