MAC_TEST(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		   MAC_TEST(4)

NAME
     mac_test -- MAC framework testing policy

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	the testing policy into	your kernel, place the following lines
     in	your kernel configuration file:

	   options MAC
	   options MAC_TEST

     Alternately, to load the testing module at	boot time, place the following
     line in your kernel configuration file:

	   options MAC

     and in loader.conf(5):

	   mac_test_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The mac_test policy module	implements a testing facility for the MAC
     framework.	 Among other things, mac_test will try to catch	corrupt	labels
     the system	is attempting to destroy and drop to the debugger.  Addition-
     ally, a set of statistics regarding the number of times various MAC
     framework entry points have been called is	stored in the
     security.mac.test sysctl(8) tree.

   Label Format
     No	labels are defined for mac_test.

HISTORY
     The mac_test policy module	first appeared in FreeBSD 5.0 and was devel-
     oped by the TrustedBSD Project.

AUTHORS
     This software was contributed to the FreeBSD Project by Network Asso-
     ciates Labs, the Security Research	Division of Network Associates Inc.
     under DARPA/SPAWAR	contract N66001-01-C-8035 (``CBOSS''), as part of the
     DARPA CHATS research program.

BUGS
     See mac(9)	concerning appropriateness for production use.	The TrustedBSD
     MAC Framework is considered experimental in FreeBSD.

     While the MAC Framework design is intended	to support the containment of
     the root user, not	all attack channels are	currently protected by entry
     point checks.  As such, MAC Framework policies should not be relied on,
     in	isolation, to protect against a	malicious privileged user.
