Plash

Not Rated
Description
Plash is a system for sandboxing GNU/Linux programs. Plash's aim is to protect you from the programs you run by letting you run them with the minimum authority and privileges they need do do their job -- this is the Principle of Least Authority (POLA). Plash can run programs in a secure, restricted execution environment with access to a limited subset of your files.

Plash can be used to run servers, command line tools, and applications with graphical user interfaces:

- Applications with graphical interfaces: You can dynamically grant GUI applications access rights to individual files that you want to open or edit. This happens transparently through the Open/Save file chooser dialog box. Plash replaces Gtk's GtkFileChooserDialog so that the file chooser is implemented outside the application in a separate process, as a trusted component. This file chooser is known as a powerbox, because it delegates additional power to the application. See
Interface: Command Line, Graphical (Gtk)
