DESCRIPTION

       The    seccomp_rule_add(),    seccomp_rule_add_array(),    seccomp_rule_add_exact(),   and
       seccomp_rule_add_exact_array() functions all add a new filter rule to the current  seccomp
       filter.   The  seccomp_rule_add() and seccomp_rule_add_array() functions will make a "best
       effort" to add the rule as specified, but may alter the rule slightly due to  architecture
       specifics,  e.g.  socket  and  ipc  functions  on  x86.   The seccomp_rule_add_exact() and
       seccomp_rule_add_exact_array() functions will attempt to add the rule exactly as specified
       so  it  may  behave differently on different architectures.  While it does not guarantee a
       exact filter ruleset, seccomp_rule_add() and  seccomp_rule_add_array()  do  guarantee  the
       same behavior regardless of the architecture.

       The  newly  added  filter rule does not take effect until the entire filter is loaded into
       the kernel using seccomp_load(3).

       The SCMP_CMP() and SCMP_A{0-5}() macros generate a scmp_arg_cmp structure for use with the
       above  functions.  The SCMP_CMP() macro allows the caller to specify an arbitrary argument
       along with the comparison operator, mask, and datum values where the SCMP_A{0-5}()  macros
       are specific to a certain argument.  See the EXAMPLES section below.

       While it is possible to specify the syscall value directly using the standard __NR_syscall
       values, in order to ensure proper operation across multiple  architectures  it  is  highly
       recommended to use the SCMP_SYS() macro instead.  See the EXAMPLES section below.

       The filter context ctx is the value returned by the call to seccomp_init(3).

       Valid action values are as follows:

       SCMP_ACT_KILL
              The thread will be killed by the kernel when it calls a syscall that does not match
              any of the configured seccomp filter rules.

       SCMP_ACT_TRAP
              The thread will throw a SIGSYS signal when it calls a syscall that does  not  match
              any of the configured seccomp filter rules.

       SCMP_ACT_ERRNO(uint16_t errno)
              The  thread  will receive a return value of errno when it calls a syscall that does
              not match any of the configured seccomp filter rules.

       SCMP_ACT_TRACE(uint16_t msg_num)
              If  the  thread  is  being  traced  and   the   tracing   process   specified   the
              PTRACE_O_TRACESECCOMP  option in the call to ptrace(2), the tracing process will be
              notified, via PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP , and the  value  provided  in  msg_num  can  be
              retrieved using the PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG option.

       SCMP_ACT_LOG
              The  seccomp  filter  will  have  no effect on the thread calling the syscall if it
              matches the filter rule but the syscall will be logged.

       SCMP_ACT_ALLOW
              The seccomp filter will have no effect on the thread calling the syscall if it does
              not match any of the configured seccomp filter rules.

       Valid comparison op values are as follows:

       SCMP_CMP_NE
              Matches when the argument value is not equal to the datum value, example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_NE , datum )

       SCMP_CMP_LT
              Matches when the argument value is less than the datum value, example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_LT , datum )

       SCMP_CMP_LE
              Matches when the argument value is less than or equal to the datum value, example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_LE , datum )

       SCMP_CMP_EQ
              Matches when the argument value is equal to the datum value, example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_EQ , datum )

       SCMP_CMP_GE
              Matches  when  the  argument  value  is  greater  than or equal to the datum value,
              example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_GE , datum )

       SCMP_CMP_GT
              Matches when the argument value is greater than the datum value, example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_GT , datum )

       SCMP_CMP_MASKED_EQ
              Matches when the masked argument value is equal to the masked datum value, example:

              SCMP_CMP( arg , SCMP_CMP_MASKED_EQ , mask , datum )

RETURN VALUE

       The   seccomp_rule_add(),    seccomp_rule_add_array(),    seccomp_rule_add_exact(),    and
       seccomp_rule_add_exact_array()  functions return zero on success, negative errno values on
       failure.

NOTES

       While the seccomp filter can be generated independent of the  kernel,  kernel  support  is
       required to load and enforce the seccomp filter generated by libseccomp.
