       sandbox - Run cmd under an SELinux sandbox

       sandbox [-C] [-s] [ -d DPI ] [-l level  ]  [[-M  |  -X]   -H  homedir  -T  tempdir  ]  [-I
       includefile ] [ -W windowmanager ] [ -w windowsize ] [[-i file ]...] [ -t type ] -S


       Run  the  cmd  application  within a tightly confined SELinux domain.  The default sandbox
       domain only allows applications the ability to read and write stdin, stdout and any  other
       file  descriptors  handed to it. It is not allowed to open any other files.  The -M option
       will mount an alternate homedir and tmpdir to be used by the sandbox.

       If you have the policycoreutils-sandbox package installed, you can use the -X  option  and
       the  -M  option.   sandbox  -X  allows  you to run X applications within a sandbox.  These
       applications will start up their own X Server and create a temporary  home  directory  and
       /tmp.   The  default SELinux policy does not allow any capabilities or network access.  It
       also prevents all access to the users other processes and files.  Files specified  on  the
       command  that  are  in  the  home  directory  or  /tmp  will  be  copied  into the sandbox

       If directories are specified with -H or -T the directory will have  its  context  modified
       with  chcon(1)  unless  a  level  is  specified with -l.  If the MLS/MCS security level is
       specified, the user is responsible to set the correct labels.

       -h --help
              display usage message

       -H --homedir
              Use alternate homedir to mount over your home directory.   Defaults  to  temporary.
              Requires -X or -M.

       -i --include
              Copy  this  file  into  the appropriate temporary sandbox directory. Command can be

       -I --includefile
              Copy  all  files  listed  in  inputfile  into  the  appropriate  temporary  sandbox

       -l --level
              Specify the MLS/MCS Security Level to run the sandbox with.  Defaults to random.

       -M --mount
              Create a Sandbox with temporary files for $HOME and /tmp.

       -s --shred
              Shred temporary files created in $HOME and /tmp, before deleting.

       -t --type
              Use alternate sandbox type, defaults to sandbox_t or sandbox_x_t for -X.

              sandbox_t -    No  X,  No  Network  Access,  No  Open, read/write on passed in file
              sandbox_min_t  -    No Network Access
              sandbox_x_t    -    Ports for X applications to run locally
              sandbox_web_t  -    Ports required for web browsing
              sandbox_net_t  -         Network ports (for server software)
              sandbox_net_client_t     -    All network ports

       -T --tmpdir
              Use alternate temporary directory to mount on /tmp.  Defaults to tmpfs. Requires -X
              or -M.

       -S --session
              Run a full desktop session, Requires level, and home and tmpdir.

       -w --windowsize

              Specifies  the  windowsize when creating an X based Sandbox. The default windowsize
              is 1000x700.

       -W --windowmanager
              Select alternative window manager to run within sandbox -X.  Default to /usr/bin/x-

       -X     Create  an  X  based  Sandbox  for  gui  apps,  temporary files for $HOME and /tmp,
              secondary Xserver, defaults to sandbox_x_t

       -d --dpi
              Set the DPI value for the sandbox X Server. Defaults to the current X Sever DPI.

       -C --capabilities Use capabilities within the
              sandbox. By default applications executed within the sandbox will not be allowed to
              use  capabilities  (setuid  apps), with the -C flag, you can use programs requiring
