NAME

pscap - a program to see capabilities

SYNOPSIS

pscap [ -a ]

DESCRIPTION

pscap is a program that prints out a report of process capabilities. If the application has any capabilities, it will be in the report with the exception of init. By giving the -a command line option, init will be included, too. If a process is not in the report, it has dropped all capabilities. If the process has partial capabilities, it is further examined to see if it has an open-ended bounding set. If this is found to be true, a ’+’ symbol is added.
The command name in the output may be followed by an asterisk mark (*). This mark denotes processes which run in child user namespaces (relative to the user namespace of pscap itself).
