schroot

Execute commands in a chroot environment

schroot allows users to execute commands or interactive shells in different chroots. Any number of named chroots may be created, and access permissions given to each, including root access for normal users, on a per-user or per-group basis. Additionally, schroot can switch to a different user in the chroot, using PAM for authentication and authorisation. All operations are logged for security.

Several different types of chroot are supported, including normal directories in the filesystem, and also block devices. Sessions, persistent chroots created on the fly from files (tar with optional compression and zip) and LVM snapshots are also supported.

schroot supports kernel personalities, allowing the programs run inside the chroot to have a different personality. For example, running 32-bit chroots on 64-bit systems, or even running binaries from alternative operating systems such as SVR4 or Xenix.

schroot also integrates with sbuild, to allow building packages with all supported chroot types, including session-managed chroot types such as LVM snapshots.

schroot shares most of its options with dchroot, but offers vastly more functionality.

schroot
=======

Securely enter a chroot and run a command or login shell.

Note that giving untrusted users root access to chroots is a serious
security risk!  Although the untrusted user will only have root access
to files inside the chroot, in practice there are many obvious ways of
breaking out of the chroot and of disrupting services on the host
system.  As always, this boils down to trust.

schroot for Debian
------------------

Other alternative packages to schroot are dchroot and fakechroot.
These serve different needs, and may be more appropriate.  schroot is
a drop-in replacement for dchroot, and offers much more functionality.
fakechroot may be more secure if users want to have some approximation
of root access in a chroot, but you don't want to give them full root
access.
