P_CANDEBUG(9)	       FreeBSD Kernel Developer's Manual	 P_CANDEBUG(9)

NAME
     p_candebug	-- determine debuggability of a	process

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/proc.h>

     int
     p_candebug(struct thread *td, struct proc *p);

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

SYSCTL VARIABLES
     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 kernel's debug facilities.

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

ERRORS
     [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) variable 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.
