p_candebug — determine debuggability of a process


#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/proc.h> int p_candebug(struct thread *td, struct proc *p);


This function can be used to determine if a given process p is debuggable by the thread td.


The following sysctl(8) variables directly influence the behaviour of p_candebug(): kern.securelevel Debugging of the init process is not allowed if this variable is 1 or greater. security.bsd.unprivileged_proc_debug Must be set to a non-zero value to allow unprivileged processes access to the ker‐ nel's debug facilities.


The p_candebug() function returns 0 if the process denoted by p is debuggable by thread td, or a non-zero error return value otherwise.


[EACCESS] The MAC subsystem denied debuggability. [EAGAIN] Process p is in the process of being exec()'ed. [EPERM] Thread td lacks super-user credentials and process p is executing a set- user-ID or set-group-ID executable. [EPERM] Thread td lacks super-user credentials and process p's group set is not a subset of td's effective group set. [EPERM] Thread td lacks super-user credentials and process p's user IDs do not match thread td's effective user ID. [EPERM] Process p denotes the initial process initproc() and the sysctl(8) vari‐ able kern.securelevel is greater than zero. [ESRCH] Process p is not visible to thread td as determined by cr_seeotheruids(9) or cr_seeothergids(9). [ESRCH] Thread td has been jailed and process p does not belong to the same jail as td. [ESRCH] The MAC subsystem denied debuggability.
