Hi Tom,

The work is almost done. We plan to finish everyhing by the end od September.
There is a few changes in the design compared to the wiki page:
https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/Security:IntegrityMeasurement. Those are only minor
changes. I'll try to update the wiki page this week.

The main status is:
 - Kernel features are done and can be found on Dmitry Kasatkin git on
a-control-experimental). We want to upstream all patches, but it will take some
time (no sooner than December). So we've backported all integrity patches to
kernel-common on Tizen.org on sandbox/jkozerski/ima-evm branch
=shortlog;h=refs%2Fheads%2Fsandbox%2Fjkozerski%2Fima-evm). We've tried also to
backport all those patches to emulator-kernel, but it wasn't possible due to too
many conflicts (this kernel is a little bit old: 3.12).

- ima-evm-utils (repository:
) features are mostly done (there's one thing left). All patches are merged to
experimetal branch
t;a=shortlog;h=refs%2Fheads%2Fexperimental). This library makes using of kernel
interfaces easier.

- ima-evm-reference-utils
-reference-utils,branches). This is set of reference tools like: GUI, service,
console-tool, scripts. There is a few things to do here - mostly example
scripts, and console tool.

Plase ask if you have any questions.
