SYNOPSIS

To compile the process partition policy into your kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file:


.Cd "options MAC"


.Cd "options MAC_PARTITION"

Alternately, to load the process partition module at boot time, place the following line in your kernel configuration file:


.Cd "options MAC"

and in loader.conf(5):
mac_partition_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The mac_partition policy module implements a process partition policy, which allows administrators to place running processes into "partitions", based on their numeric process partition (specified in the process’s MAC label). Processes with a specified partition can only see processes that are in the same partition. If no partition is specified for a process, it can see all other processes in the system (subject to other MAC policy restrictions not defined in this man page). No provisions for placing processes into multiple partitions are available.

Label Format

Partition labels take on the following format:


.Sm off

partition / value


.Sm on

Where value can be any integer value or "none". For example:
partition/1
partition/20
partition/none
