[$] Domesticating applications, OpenBSD style

Linux Weekly News - k, 2015-07-21 22:54
One of the many approaches to improving system security consists of reducing the attack surface of a given program by restricting the range of system calls available to it. If an application has no need for access to the network, say, then removing its ability to use the socket() system call should cause no loss in functionality while reducing the scope of the mischief that can be made should that application be compromised. In the Linux world, this kind of sandboxing can be done using a security module or the seccomp() system call. OpenBSD has lacked this capability so far, but it may soon gain it via a somewhat different approach than has been seen in Linux.
