 12         help
 13           This enforces restrictions on unprivileged users reading the kernel
 14           syslog via dmesg(8).
 15 
 16           If this option is not selected, no restrictions will be enforced
 17           unless the dmesg_restrict sysctl is explicitly set to (1).

 26           This allows you to choose different security modules to be
 27           configured into your kernel.
 28 
 29           If this option is not selected, the default Linux security
 30           model will be used.

 36         help
 37           This will build the securityfs filesystem.  It is currently used by
 38           the TPM bios character driver and IMA, an integrity provider.  It is
 39           not used by SELinux or SMACK.

 45         depends on SECURITY
 46         help
 47           This enables the socket and networking security hooks.
 48           If enabled, a security module can use these hooks to
 49           implement socket and networking access controls.
 50           If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
 51 
 52 config SECURITY_NETWORK_XFRM
 53         bool "XFRM (IPSec) Networking Security Hooks"
 54         depends on XFRM && SECURITY_NETWORK
 55         help
 56           This enables the XFRM (IPSec) networking security hooks.
 57           If enabled, a security module can use these hooks to
 58           implement per-packet access controls based on labels
 59           derived from IPSec policy.  Non-IPSec communications are
 60           designated as unlabelled, and only sockets authorized
 61           to communicate unlabelled data can send without using
 62           IPSec.
 63           If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.

 65 config SECURITY_PATH
 66         bool "Security hooks for pathname based access control"
 67         depends on SECURITY
 68         help
 69           This enables the security hooks for pathname based access control.
 70           If enabled, a security module can use these hooks to
 71           implement pathname based access controls.
 72           If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.

 74 config INTEL_TXT
 75         bool "Enable Intel(R) Trusted Execution Technology (Intel(R) TXT)"
 76         depends on HAVE_INTEL_TXT
 77         help
 78           This option enables support for booting the kernel with the
 79           Trusted Boot (tboot) module. This will utilize
 80           Intel(R) Trusted Execution Technology to perform a measured launch
 81           of the kernel. If the system does not support Intel(R) TXT, this
 82           will have no effect.
 83 
 84           Intel TXT will provide higher assurance of system configuration and
 85           initial state as well as data reset protection.  This is used to
 86           create a robust initial kernel measurement and verification, which
 87           helps to ensure that kernel security mechanisms are functioning
 88           correctly. This level of protection requires a root of trust outside
 89           of the kernel itself.
 90 
 91           Intel TXT also helps solve real end user concerns about having
 92           confidence that their hardware is running the VMM or kernel that
 93           it was configured with, especially since they may be responsible for
 94           providing such assurances to VMs and services running on it.
 95 
 96           See <http://www.intel.com/technology/security/> for more information
 97           about Intel(R) TXT.
 98           See <http://tboot.sourceforge.net> for more information about tboot.
 99           See Documentation/intel_txt.txt for a description of how to enable
100           Intel TXT support in a kernel boot.
101 
102           If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.

104 config LSM_MMAP_MIN_ADDR
105         int "Low address space for LSM to protect from user allocation"
106         depends on SECURITY && SECURITY_SELINUX
107         default 32768 if ARM || (ARM64 && COMPAT)
108         default 65536
109         help
110           This is the portion of low virtual memory which should be protected
111           from userspace allocation.  Keeping a user from writing to low pages
112           can help reduce the impact of kernel NULL pointer bugs.
113 
114           For most ia64, ppc64 and x86 users with lots of address space
115           a value of 65536 is reasonable and should cause no problems.
116           On arm and other archs it should not be higher than 32768.
117           Programs which use vm86 functionality or have some need to map
118           this low address space will need the permission specific to the
119           systems running LSM.
