Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/753276/rss

At the 20 Linux Storage, Filesystem, and Memory-Management Summit, Mimi
Zohar gave a presentation in the
filesystem track on the Linux integrity subsystem. There is a lot
of that the integrity subsystem (usually referred to as “IMA”, which
is the integrity
measurement architecture
, though there is more to the subsystem) is
complex and
not documented well, she
said. So she wanted to give an overview of the subsystem and then to
discuss some filesystem-related concerns.
