Hello Mathieu, or anyone else affected,

Accepted mokutil into wily-proposed. The package will build now and be
available at
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mokutil/0.3.0-0ubuntu3~15.10.1 in a
few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in
advance!

Bug description:
  [Rationale]
  Secure Boot is good. We want to be able to validate that as much as possible of the boot process happens with signed binaries; from our shim (the part that is loaded by the EFI firmware itself), down to grub2, the kernel, and even loaded modules.

  [Impact]
  All our users booting in UEFI; on all supported releases.

  [Test cases]
  <FIXME: add more test cases>

  Test cases here are separated by the components that need to be
  changed:

  = grub2 =

  Booting signed kernels:
  1) Try to boot a custom kernel
  2) Verify that the kernel will not be loaded by grub (you should see an error message about the signature)

  Prompting on upgrade:
  0) On a system that runs a dkms module (such as r8168-dkms, rtl8812au-dkms, ndiswrapper-dkms, bbswitch-dkms, etc.)
  1) Make sure that validation is enabled and reboot: 'sudo mokutil --enable-validation && sudo reboot'
  2) Upgrade to the new grub2 package (you may need to download the updated package beforehand)
  3) Validate that grub2 prompts you to disable shim validation.

  = dkms =

  Prompting for dkms on install:
  1) Install r8168-dkms
  2) Verify that you're asked to disable shim validation, and walked through the process via debconf prompts.

  Prompting for dkms on upgrade
  0) On a system that runs a dkms module (such as r8168-dkms, rtl8812au-dkms, ndiswrapper-dkms, bbswitch-dkms, etc.)
  1) Make sure that validation is enabled and reboot: 'sudo mokutil --enable-validation && reboot'
  2) Upgrade to the new dkms package (you may need to download the updated package beforehand)
  3) Validate that dkms prompts you to disable shim validation.

  = shim =

  Booting:
  -> Validate that it allows booting grubx64.efi signed with the old key.
  -> Validate that it allows booting grubx64.efi signed with the new key.

  Validation toggle:
  0) Boot the system; verify if /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/MokSBStateRT-* is present;
  If MokSBStateRT is preset:
  1) sudo mokutil --enable-validation && sudo reboot
  2) Validate that Mok asks you if you want to enable validation
  Otherwise:
  1) sudo mokutil --disable-validation && sudo reboot
  2) Validate that Mok asks you if you want to disable validation
  Finally:
  3) Complete the process to toggle validation state, reboot, and verify whether MokSBStateRT is present.
  4) Run mokutil again to toggle validation back to its former state.

  
  [Regression Potential]
  Issues to watch out for:
  - (dkms) not prompting on upgrade of a dkms package/dkms itself if validation is currently enabled (provided debconf does not have dkms/disable_secureboot seen and set to false)
  - (dkms, on new shim) prompting unnecessarily if validation is already disabled
  - (grub) not prompting on upgrade ...
  - (grub) not prompting on upgrade across releases if validation is disabled; without the applied SRU on original release.
  - (grub, on new shim) prompting unecessarily ...
  - (shim) failing to boot on some firmware that doesn't correctly follow specification
  - (shim) failing to load a properly-signed grub
  - (shim) accepting to load a badly-signed grub
