The TPM PCRs are only reset on a hard reboot.  In order to validate a
TPM's quote after a soft reboot (eg. kexec -e), the IMA measurement list
of the running kernel must be saved and then restored on the subsequent

The existing securityfs binary_runtime_measurements file conveniently
provides a serialized format of the IMA measurement list. This patch
set serializes the measurement list in this format and restores it.

This patch set pre-req's Thiago Bauermann's "kexec_file: Add buffer
hand-over for the next kernel" patch set* for actually carrying the
serialized measurement list across the kexec.



Mimi Zohar (6):
  ima: on soft reboot, restore the measurement list
  ima: permit duplicate measurement list entries
  ima: maintain memory size needed for serializing the measurement list
  ima: serialize the binary_runtime_measurements
  ima: store the builtin/custom template definitions in a list
  ima: support restoring multiple template formats

Thiago Jung Bauermann (1):
  ima: on soft reboot, save the measurement list
