DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The mac_seeotheruids policy module, when enabled, denies users to see
     processes or sockets owned by other users.

     To enable mac_seeotheruids, set the sysctl OID
     security.mac.seeotheruids.enabled to 1.

     To allow users to see processes and sockets owned by the same primary
     group, set the sysctl OID security.mac.seeotheruids.primarygroup_enabled
     to 1.

     To allow processes with a specific group ID to be exempt from the policy,
     set the sysctl OID security.mac.seeotheruids.specificgid_enabled to 1,
     and security.mac.seeotheruids.specificgid to the group ID to be exempted.

AUTHORS    [Toc]    [Back]

     This software was contributed to the FreeBSD Project by Network Associates
 Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates Inc.
     under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (``CBOSS''), as part of the
     DARPA CHATS research program.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     See mac(9) concerning appropriateness for production use.	The TrustedBSD
     MAC Framework is considered experimental in FreeBSD.

     While the MAC Framework design is intended to support the containment of
     the root user, not all attack channels are currently protected by entry
     point checks.  As such, MAC Framework policies should not be relied on,
     in isolation, to protect against a malicious privileged user.
