soapbox

Library to restrict processes from tampering with directories/files

Soapbox allows to restrict specific processes to write only to those places you want files to be changed. Read-access however is still based on file-permissions.

By preloading the Soapbox library, you can run programs as root and still be safe that they don't mess up your system.

Soapbox TODO items


 + Soapbox could check for SOAPBOXACTION
    - if it contains "redir=/new/path", redirect writes/changes to /new/path
