libjail-rs aims to be a rust implementation of the FreeBSD jail(3) library. While feature parity is a goal, a one-to-one implementation of all functions in jail(3) is not.

Is it any good?


Can I use it?

This library is still under heavy development, but seems to work so far. No stability guarantees are made.

How do I use it?

jail = "*"

Execute a command in a jail:

use jail::process::Jailed;
use jail::StoppedJail;
use std::process::Command;

fn main() {
    let stopped = StoppedJail::new("/path/to/root")
        .ip("fe80::2".parse().unwrap * ())
        .param("allow.raw_sockets", param::Value::Int(1));

    let running = stopped.start().expect("Couldn't start Jail");

    let output = Command::new("hostname")
        .expect("Failed to execute command");

    println!("output: {:?}", output.stdout);


Is it fast?

There are a few benchmarks included. Run them with sudo cargo bench (yes, starting a jail requires being root).

These are some results on my laptop, on slow, spinning disks:
