sbox is a CGI wrapper script that allows 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 and intentional denial of service attacks. It also optionally allows the Webmaster to place clients' CGI scripts in a chroot'ed shell restricted to the author's home directories.
