aa-unconfined - output a list of processes with tcp or udp ports that do not
have AppArmor profiles loaded
[--with-ss | --with-netstat]
- Displays all processes from /proc filesystem with tcp or udp ports
that do not have AppArmor profiles loaded.
- Use the ss(8) command to find processes listening on network
sockets (the default).
- Use the netstat(8) command to find processes listening on network
sockets. This is also what aa-unconfined will fall back to when
ss(8) is not available.
aa-unconfined will use netstat(8) to determine which processes
have open network sockets and do not have AppArmor profiles loaded into the
aa-unconfined must be run as root to retrieve the process executable link
from the /proc filesystem. This program is susceptible to race
conditions of several flavours: an unlinked executable will be mishandled; an
executable started before an AppArmor profile is loaded will not appear in the
output, despite running without confinement; a process that dies between the
netstat(8) and further checks will be mishandled. This program only
lists processes using TCP and UDP. In short, this program is unsuitable for
forensics use and is provided only as an aid to profiling all
network-accessible processes in the lab.
