[RFC][cifs-utils PATCH] cifs.upcall: allow scraping of KRB5CCNAME out of initiating task's /proc/<pid>/environ file

Samba - General mailing list
Chad reported that he was seeing a regression in cifs-utils-6.6. Prior
to that, cifs.upcall was able to find credcaches in non-default FILE:
locations, but with the rework of that code, that ability was lost.

Unfortunately, the krb5 library design doesn't really take into account
the fact that we might need to find a credcache in a process that isn't
descended from the session.

When the kernel does an upcall, it passes several bits of info about the
task that initiated the upcall. One of those things is the PID (the
tgid, in particular). We can use that info to reach into the
/proc/<pid>/environ file for the process, and grab whatever value of
KRB5CCNAME is there.  This patch adds this ability to cifs.upcall.

I'm not 100% convinced that this is a good idea however, so for now,
this is disabled unless the command line has a '-e' switch. Anyone
wishing to play with this should edit their /etc/request-key.conf files
accordingly.

Meant to put a Reported-by: here for Chad. I'll do that before merging.

FWIW, this patch works as expected in cursory, light testing. This
should be superior to the earlier method where we scanned in /tmp as
well -- more efficient, and also able to find non-FILE: credcaches, as
well as ones that lie in other places besides /tmp.

My main concern is that we have to do the environ file scraping while
privileged, and that we end up trusting some info from a userland
process that triggered the upcall in KRB5CCNAME. Does this open any
potential attack vectors that I'm not considering?

Yeah, ick. The kernel doesn't send down the gid, so we can't just add
that in directly...

We could do a getpwuid(uid), and then setgid(pw_gid). That might be
problematic for applications that have done a setgid(), but those ought
to be very rare.

Yeah, that's a different matter. It would be nice to confine
cifs.upcall, but we'd need an SELinux policy for that. Honestly, I'd
rather see us move to gssproxy before spending time on that.
