Capsicum: Practical capabilities for UNIX
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jonathan Anderson.
Capsicum is a lightweight operating system capability and sandbox framework planned for inclusion in FreeBSD 9.
Capsicum extends, rather than replaces, UNIX AP Is, providing new kernel primitives (sandboxed capability mode and capabilities) and a userspace sandbox API . These tools support the compartmentalization of monolithic UNIX applications into logical applications.
We demonstrate our approach by adapting core FreeBSD utilities and Google’s Chromium web browser to use Capsicum primitives, and compare the complexity and robustness of Capsicum with other sandboxing techniques.
