This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves
the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the
results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-
artful' to 'verification-done-artful'. If the problem still exists,
change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-failed-

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will
be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See for documentation how
to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

  IMA policy parsing is broken in 4.13

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in linux source package in Artful:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  == SRU Justification ==
  Artful has a bug in IMA policy parsing introduced by mailine commit 
  This bug prevents setting IMA measurements and appraisal options per fsuuid.

  This commit has been cc'd to upstream stable.  However, it has not yet been 
  to Artful, since upstream 4.13 is EOL.

  == Fix ==
  36447456e1cc ("ima/policy: fix parsing of fsuuid")

  == Regression Potential ==
  Low. This patch has also been sent to upstream stable, so it has had 
additional upstream

  == Test Case ==
  A test kernel was built with this patch and tested by the original bug 
  The bug reporter states the test kernel resolved the bug.

  Linux kernel version 4.13 has a bug in IMA policy parsing that prevents 
setting IMA measurements and appraisal options per fsuuid.

  The issue can be reproduced with simple ima_policy:

  # fsuuid=$(blkid -s UUID -o value /dev/sda1)
  # cat > ima_policy << EOF
  dont_appraise fsuuid=$fsuuid
  dont_measure fsuuid=$fsuuid
  # cat ima_policy > /sys/kernel/security/ima/policy
  cat: write error: Invalid argument
  # dmesg | tail
  [  928.069606] audit: type=1805 audit(1521031959.907:18):

  The same policy can be successfully loaded on v4.10:

  (v4.10) # dmesg | tail
