Hi, since 'proposed' belongs to the official archives (archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu) and packages from proposed are just located in a special area there (we call it the proposed 'pocket'), kernels and other packages from there that are signed, are signed with the standard and common key. Only a signed kernel that comes from a non-standard archive (like a PPA) is signed with a different key, hence requires and additional key file.

[Fix] * fa4f3f56ccd28ac031ab275e673ed4098855fed4 fa4f3f56ccd2 "powerpc/ima: Fix secure boot rules in ima arch policy" [Test Case] * Perform a secure boot on a powerpc system with 'module.sig_enforce=1' set at the boot command. * If the IMA module appraise rule is included, the finit_module syscall will fail (unless the module signing public key got loaded onto the IMA keyring) without having the patch in place. * The verification needs to be done by the IBM Power team. [Regression Potential] * There is (always) a certain regression risk with having code changes, especially in the secure boot area. * But this patch is limited to the powerpc platform and will not affect any other architecture. * It got discussed at https://lore.kernel.org/r/1588342612-14532-1-git-send-email-na...@linux.ibm.com before it became finally upstream accepted with kernel 5.7-rc7. * The secure boot code itself wasn't really touched, rather than it's basis for execution. The IMA policy rule for module appraisal is now added only if 'CONFIG_MODULE_SIG' is not enabled (instead of CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE). Hence the change is very limited and straightforward. [Other] * Since the patch got upstream with 5.7-rc7, it is already in groovy, hence this SRU is for focal only. __________ == Comment: #0 - Michael Ranweiler <mranw...@us.ibm.com> - 2020-04-22 14:44:31 == +++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #184073 +++ This bug is a follow on to LP 1866909 to address a missing piece - only half the following patch was included in 5.4.0-24.28. The upstream patch has an additional fix but it?s not critical for GA. It can get included as part of bug fixes. It also affects only power. The patch("powerpc/ima: fix secure boot rules in ima arch policy") is posted to linux-integrity and linuxppc-dev mailing list (https://lore.kernel.org/linux-integrity/1586549618-6106-1-git-send- email-na...@linux.ibm.com/T/#u) If there are any issues identified during further testing, they will get opened as separate issue to be addressed later.
