CGI chroot wrapper script for safer hosting environment


Sbox is a CGI wrapper script that helps Web site hosting services to safely grant CGI authoring privileges to untrusted clients. In addition to changing the process privileges of client scripts to match their owners, it goes beyond other wrappers by placing configurable ceilings on script resource usage, avoiding unintentional (as well as intentional) denial of service attacks. It also optionally let the Webmaster to place client's CGI scripts in a chroot'ed shell restricted to the author's home directories.

Thanks to a cleaver per-vhost configuration, SBOX is also capable of being highly customizable on a per web site level. SBOX also runs Ruby, Perl, Python and PHP script using their respective interpreter, with a configurable path for each of them.
