SECMODEL_EXTENSIONS(9) NetBSD Kernel Developer's Manual SECMODEL_EXTENSIONS(9)


NAME
secmodel_extensions -- extensions security model
DESCRIPTION
secmodel_extensions implements extensions to the traditional security model based on the original 4.4BSD. They can be used to grant additional privileges to ordinary users, or enable specific security measures like curtain mode. The extensions are described below. Curtain mode When enabled, all returned objects will be filtered according to the user-id requesting information about them, preventing users from access- ing objects they do not own. It affects the output of many commands, including fstat(1), netstat(1), ps(1), sockstat(1), and w(1). This extension is enabled by setting security.models.extensions.curtain or security.curtain sysctl(7) to a non-zero value. It can be enabled at any time, but cannot be disabled anymore when the securelevel of the system is above 0. Non-superuser mounts When enabled, it allows file-systems to be mounted by an ordinary user who owns the point node and has at least read access to the special device mount(8) arguments. Note that the nosuid and nodev flags must be given for non-superuser mounts. This extension is enabled by setting security.models.extensions.usermount or vfs.generic.usermount sysctl(7) to a non-zero value. It can be disabled at any time, but cannot be enabled anymore when the securelevel of the system is above 0. Non-superuser control of CPU sets When enabled, an ordinary user is allowed to control the CPU affinity(3) of the processes and threads he owns. This extension is enabled by setting security.models.extensions.user_set_cpu_affinity sysctl(7) to a non-zero value. It can be disabled at any time, but cannot be enabled anymore when the securelevel of the system is above 0.
