CGI chroot wrapper script for safer hosting environment
Sbox is a CGI wrapper script that helps Web site hosting services to safely
grant CGI authoring privileges to untrusted clients. In addition to changing
the process privileges of client scripts to match their owners, it goes beyond
other wrappers by placing configurable ceilings on script resource usage,
avoiding unintentional (as well as intentional) denial of service attacks. It
also optionally let the Webmaster to place client's CGI scripts in a chroot'ed
shell restricted to the author's home directories.
Thanks to a cleaver per-vhost configuration, SBOX is also capable of being
highly customizable on a per web site level. SBOX also runs Ruby, Perl, Python
and PHP script using their respective interpreter, with a configurable path
for each of them.
