We will be at FOSDEM to talk about PRoot and some other tools based on it.
Cedric will do a Lightning talk Saturday about syscall instrumentation. He will present some tools, based on syscall instrumentation, that we develop and use at STMicroelectronics:
- PRoot, emulate chroot, bind mount and binfmt_misc for non-root users
- CARE (aka. Comprehensive Archiver for Reproducible Execution), creates automatically an archive that contains all the material required to re-execute the monitored programs in their original context (environment, files, expected kernel features, ...)
- DepsTracker (to be released soon), observes the execution of any processes in order to compute their mutual dependencies with respect to the file-system
Hope to see you there.
