Summary: Library for Capabilities (linux-privs) Support
Capabilities are a measure to limit the omnipotence of the superuser.
Currently a program started by root or setuid root has the power to do
anything. Capabilities (Linux-Privs) provide a more fine-grained access
control. Without kernel patches, you can use this library to drop
capabilities within setuid binaries. If you use patches, this can be
done automatically by the kernel.

    * Fixed a potential libcap memory leak by adding a destructor
    * Major improvement is that there is a path for Linux-PAM compliant
      applications to support setting Ambient vector Capabilities via now
    * Added libcap cap_proc_root() API function
    * Added color support to captree
    * Fixed contrib/sucap/su to correctly handle the Inheritable flag
    * capsh enhancements
    * getcap -r / now generates readable output

    * Enhanced capsh --suggest to also compare against the capability value names
      and not just their descriptions
    * Added capsh --current support
    * Added a contrib/sucap/su.c pure-capabilities PAM implementation of su
    * Fix for a corner case infinite loop handling long strings
    * Added libcap cap_iab_compare() and cap_iab_get_pid() APIs
    * Added a Go utility, captree, to display the process (and thread) graph along with
      the POSIX.1e and IAB capabilities of each PID{TID} tree.
* Sat Jul 17 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 2.51:
    * Fix capsh installation
    * Add an autoauth module flag to
    * Unified libcap/cap (Go) and libcap (C) default generation of external format binary data
    * API enhancement cap_fill() and (*cap.Set).Fill() - to permit copying one
      capability flag to another.
    * --explain=cap_foo: describe what cap_foo does
    * --suggest=phrase: search all the cap descriptions and describe those that match the phrase
    * Add "keepcaps" module argument support to (reported by Zoltan Fridrich. Bug 212945)
    * extend libcap to include cap_prctl() and cap_prctlw() functions to regain
      feature parity with Go "cap" package. These are only needed when linking
      against -lpsx for keepcaps POSIX semantics.
    * this likely requires substantial application changes to make Ambient
      capability support usable in general, but doing our part for the admin.
    * Add a test case for recent kernel fix
    * Go pragma fix for convenience functions in "cap" module
* Wed Jun 02 2021 Christophe Giboudeaux <>

    * More robust "psx" redirection for nocgo compilation - the documentation for
      the cgo implementation is now included in the nocgo one because the
      automated documentation builds the docs from the nocgo version.
    * Lots of documentation cleanups and added a few man pages: for IAB and
    * Some general no-op License changes that might cause folk to notice but only
      for formatting reasons. These were initially inspired by some lawyerly
      interactions, but I ended up rolling back half of them because they
      confused automated software infrastructure.

  - Update to version 2.30 (jsc#SLE-17092, jsc#ECO-3460):
    * BUGFIX: arm and i386 fixes C and Go setgroups choice - used
      wrong syscall in 2.29.
    * cleaned up make clean and make install to actually work as
    * updated Gentoo libpsx.pc file from Lars Wendler
    * refactored the way libpsx linkage with libcap performed mutual
    * Previously (2.28) libpsx had an API call overridden by libcap
      using weak linkage function in libpsx. In 2.30 this is reversed,
      namely libpsx provides the stronger function and libcap has a
      weak "no-op" version.
    * a bit more consistency in handling the 'all' sets in libcap
      (C) and libcap/cap (Go). Namely, they both dynamically discover
      the number of capabilities named by the kernel and use this as
      the definition of 'all' for the current runtime.
      + libcap (C) exports cap_max_bit() to export the number of
      supported capabilities
      + libcap/cap (Go) exports cap.MaxBits() for this same value.
