From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

Add an implementation of HKDF (RFC 5869) to fscrypt, for the purpose of
deriving additional key material from the fscrypt master keys for v2
encryption policies.  HKDF is a key derivation function built on top of
HMAC.  We choose SHA-512 for the underlying unkeyed hash, and use an
"hmac(sha512)" transform allocated from the crypto API.

We'll be using this to replace the AES-ECB based KDF currently used to
derive the per-file encryption keys.  While the AES-ECB based KDF is
believed to meet the original security requirements, it is nonstandard
and has problems that don't exist in modern KDFs such as HKDF:

1. It's reversible.  Given a derived key and nonce, an attacker can
   easily compute the master key.  This is okay if the master key and
   derived keys are equally hard to compromise, but now we'd like to be
   more robust against threats such as a derived key being compromised
   through a timing attack, or a derived key for an in-use file being
   compromised after the master key has already been removed.

2. It doesn't evenly distribute the entropy from the master key; each 16
   input bytes only affects the corresponding 16 output bytes.

3. It isn't easily extensible to deriving other values or keys that are
   or will be needed, such as per-mode keys (which is what DIRECT_KEY
   policies really should use, rather than the master key directly as
   they do now) or a public hash for securely identifying the key (to
   ensure that an encrypted file cannot be set up with the wrong key).

HKDF solves all the above problems.

+ * 2. HKDF-Expand: expand the pseudorandom key into output keying material of
+ *    any length, parameterized by an application-specific info string.
+ *
+ * HKDF-Extract can be skipped if the input is already a pseudorandom key of

+ * shorter keys, and we don't want to force users of those modes to generate
+ * unnecessarily long keys.  Thus fscrypt still does HKDF-Extract.
+ *
+ * HKDF-Extract also supports a salt.  Choosing a random salt per input key
+ * would permit the input key to come from *any* source with sufficient entropy,
+ * even if it's not distributed uniformly.  However, fscrypt doesn't take
+ * advantage of this because userspace should already provide good pseudorandom
+ * keys, which makes this unnecessary; also, having to persist a random salt per
+ * key from kernel mode would pose significant implementation complexity.  Thus
+ * fscrypt uses a fixed salt.  But to be slightly more robust against userspace
+ * (unwisely) reusing the fscrypt keys for another purpose, and to force
+ * brute-force attacks to target the fscrypt KDF specifically, fscrypt uses
+ * "fscrypt_hkdf_salt" rather than the default of all 0's defined by RFC 5869.
