Re: [dm-devel] DM-Verity Tool

Hi Milan,

Thanks for the reply.

As mentioned by you, I was looking for a tool which generates the root
hash (digest) which can be used as a parameter to dmsetup tool. I used
sha256sum tool to generate the hash but dmsetup is not accepting this

Thanks to Mikulas for providing the link to veritysetup using which I
could configure verity target. But still I have some doubts regarding
dmsetup & veritysetup

1. What are the difference between configuring a verity target using
dmsetup & veritysetup. Can these be used interchangeably?

2. I tried passing the root hash value generated by veritysetup as a
parameter to dmsetup but this doesn't work. On doing dmsetup status, the
output is showing as the target corrupted (C). I examined dmesg & found
the following error

[22885.758996] device-mapper: verity: metadata block 62 is corrupted
[22885.759001] Buffer I/O error on device dm-1, logical block 1

3. After creating a verity target using "veritysetup" how to test the
target for corrupted case (As soon as creating the status is Verified (V))

Thanks in advance
