NAME

       aa-genprof - profile generation utility for AppArmor

SYNOPSIS

       aa-genprof <executable> [-d /path/to/profiles] [-f /path/to/logfile]

OPTIONS

       -d --dir  /path/to/profiles

          Specifies where to look for the AppArmor security profile set.
          Defaults to /etc/apparmor.d.

       -f --file  /path/to/logfile

               Specifies the location of logfile.
               Default locations are read from F</etc/apparmor/logprof.conf>.
               Typical defaults are:
                        /var/log/audit/audit.log
                        /var/log/syslog
                        /var/log/messages

DESCRIPTION

       When running aa-genprof, you must specify a program to profile.  If the specified program
       is not a fully-qualified path, aa-genprof will search $PATH in order to find the program.

       If a profile does not exist for the program, aa-genprof will create one using
       aa-autodep(1).

       Genprof will then:

          - set the profile to complain mode

          - write a mark to the system log

          - instruct the user to start the application to
            be profiled in another window and exercise its functionality

       It then presents the user with two options, (S)can system log for entries to add to
       profile and (F)inish.

       If the user selects (S)can or hits return, aa-genprof will parse the complain mode logs
       and iterate through generated violations using aa-logprof(1).

       After the user finishes selecting profile entries based on violations that were detected
       during the program execution, aa-genprof will reload the updated profiles in complain mode
       and again prompt the user for (S)can and (F)inish. This cycle can then be repeated as
       necessary until all application functionality has been exercised without generating access
       violations.

       When the user eventually hits (F)inish, aa-genprof will set the main profile, and any
       other profiles that were generated, into enforce mode and exit.
