Not needing root to administer Linux

This site is devoted to announcing new versions of libcap, and sharing information about using Linux Capabilities - an alternative to the superuser model of privilege under Linux.

  • You can read about Linux Capabilities in this OLS paper.
  • You can download libcap2 in the following ways:
    • As a tar file here (or with a signature here).
    • Or browse the git managed source here.
  • The Linux capability implementation is based on a defunct draft specification for various UN*X security extensions
    • See attachment.
