Introducing SELinux Sandbox, Confines Untrusted Binaries

Eric Paris, a SELinux developer, has announced today a new SELinux feature: “Dan and I (mostly Dan) have started to play with using SELinux to confine random untrusted binaries. The program is called ‘sandbox.’ The idea is to allow administrators to lock down tightly untrusted applications in a sandbox where they can not use the network and open/create any file that is not handed to the process. Can be used to protect a system while allowing it to run some untrusted binary.”
