REGISTER_SECURITY(9)						Security Framework					      REGISTER_SECURITY(9)

register_security - registers a security framework with the kernel SYNOPSIS
int register_security(struct security_operations * ops); ARGUMENTS
ops a pointer to the struct security_options that is to be registered DESCRIPTION
This function allows a security module to register itself with the kernel security subsystem. Some rudimentary checking is done on the ops value passed to this function. You'll need to check first if your LSM is allowed to register its ops by calling security_module_enable(ops). If there is already a security module registered with the kernel, an error will be returned. Otherwise 0 is returned on success. COPYRIGHT

DEBUGFS_CREATE_REGSE(9) 				      The debugfs filesystem					   DEBUGFS_CREATE_REGSE(9)

debugfs_create_regset32 - create a debugfs file that returns register values SYNOPSIS
struct dentry * debugfs_create_regset32(const char * name, umode_t mode, struct dentry * parent, struct debugfs_regset32 * regset); ARGUMENTS
name a pointer to a string containing the name of the file to create. mode the permission that the file should have parent a pointer to the parent dentry for this file. This should be a directory dentry if set. If this parameter is NULL, then the file will be created in the root of the debugfs filesystem. regset a pointer to a struct debugfs_regset32, which contains a pointer to an array of register definitions, the array size and the base address where the register bank is to be found. DESCRIPTION
This function creates a file in debugfs with the given name that reports the names and values of a set of 32-bit registers. If the mode variable is so set it can be read from. Writing is not supported. This function will return a pointer to a dentry if it succeeds. This pointer must be passed to the debugfs_remove function when the file is to be removed (no automatic cleanup happens if your module is unloaded, you are responsible here.) If an error occurs, NULL will be returned. If debugfs is not enabled in the kernel, the value -ENODEV will be returned. It is not wise to check for this value, but rather, check for NULL or !NULL instead as to eliminate the need for #ifdef in the calling code. COPYRIGHT

Howto compile my own module into the kernel

Hi there, I'm currently writing a program/module which makes use of the Linux Security Modules (LSM), which provide hooks for some security .
