That means that /proc has to be available and writable at that point, so setting up procattrs has to be done before mount namespaces are set up. In general, it would be nice for sandboxing facilities in kernel if there would be a way to start enforcing restrictions only at next execve(), like setexeccon() for SELinux and aa_change_onexec() for AppArmor. Otherwise the exact order of setting up various sandboxing options can be very tricky to arrange correctly, since each option may have a subtle effect to the sandboxing features enabled later. In case of SARA, the operations done between shuffling the mount namespace and before execve() shouldn't be affected so it isn't important. Even if it did (a new sandboxing feature in the future would need trampolines or JIT code generation), maybe the procattr file could be opened early but it could be written closer to execve(). -Topi
