Landlock LSM: programmatic access control¶
Landlock is a stackable Linux Security Module (LSM) that makes it possible to create security sandboxes. This kind of sandbox is expected to help mitigate the security impact of bugs or unexpected/malicious behaviors in user-space applications. The current version allows only a process with the global CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability to create such sandboxes but the ultimate goal of Landlock is to empower any process, including unprivileged ones, to securely restrict themselves. Landlock is inspired by seccomp-bpf but instead of filtering syscalls and their raw arguments, a Landlock rule can inspect the use of kernel objects like files and hence make a decision according to the kernel semantic.
