Release notes for 2.33 posted Feb 23, 2020

  • This release implements cap_launch functionality
    • cap_launch is a feature that will launch (fork+exec) a new program in such a way that it can inherit capabilities and a mode not held by the parent and without changing those of the parent.
    • This feature is available in C as cap_launch() and in Go as cap.(*cap.Launcher).Launch()
  • It also introduces an IAB abstraction for the three inherited flavors of capability vector:
    • the I (inheritable set) of cap_t
    • the A (ambient) alternative to file capabilities
    • the B (blocking) vector [which is implemented as the inverse of the kernel's bounding set].
  • pam_cap uses the above IAB abstraction instead of its own config parsing.
  • libpsx now does sane things when the program fork()s. Namely the child experiences a single threaded libcap, but the parent continues to treat all threads as having a shared privilege state.
  • Text format fix for getcap error output.
