Some of the testcases in kernel/security (e.g. tomoyo) have a README
file, the others might have comments in the code. Generally the tests in
kernel/security test security features while the tests in testcases/cve
test for specific vulnerabilities which have been given CVE number. Each
CVE should be documented in the test code.

Thank you,
