Subject[PATCH v7 16/17] integrity: Trust MOK keys if MokListTrustedRT found
A new Machine Owner Key (MOK) variable called MokListTrustedRT has been
introduced in shim. When this UEFI variable is set, it indicates the
end-user has made the decision themselves that they wish to trust MOK keys
within the Linux trust boundary. It is not an error if this variable
does not exist. If it does not exist, the MOK keys should not be trusted
within the kernel.

Signed-off-by: Eric Snowberg <>
v1: Initial version
v2: Removed mok_keyring_trust_setup function
v4: Unmodified from v2
v5: Rename to machine keyring
v6: Unmodified from v5
v7: Use mokvar table instead of EFI var (suggested by Peter Jones)
