Capsicum Working Group

May 11th (Wednesday), time TBD, DMS room TBD

Overview

As part of the May 2011 FreeBSD developer summit, this working group will focus on Capsicum ("Practical capabilities for UNIX"), a new security model shipping in FreeBSD 9.0. This is a by-invitation event open to developer summit attendees.

More information on Capsicum can be found at:

The main goals of the workshop are to review the status of Capsicum integration for FreeBSD 9.0 and 8.3, identify applications for Capsicum conversion, identify gaps in Capsicum functionality, and brainstorm solutions to problems and potential future directions.

Topics

Note: general presentations about work you have done that does not require further discussions should be submitted for the FreeBSD Developers' Summit track at BSDCan (see general developer summit page).

Each session should start with a very short intro on the topic followed by discussions, whiteboard session, ... whatever is needed.

If you have a topic you want to talk about or want to be on the list that is not yet, email RobertWatson (rwatson@).

Capsicum feature development, merge status into FreeBSD 9.x, 8.x
