Library for Capabilities (linux-privs) Support
Capabilities are a measure to limit the omnipotence of the superuser. Currently a program started by root or setuid root has the power to do anything. Capabilities (Linux-Privs) provide a more fine-grained access control. Without kernel patches, you can use this library to drop capabilities within setuid binaries. If you use patches, this can be done automatically by the kernel.
