netcap - a program to see capabilities
netcap is a program that prints out a report of process capabilities. If the application is using tcp, udp, raw, or packet family of sock-
ets AND has any capabilities, it will be in the report. 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.
Some directories in the /proc file system are readonly by root. The program will try to access and report what it can. But if nothing comes
out, try changing to the root user and re-run this program.

filecap - a program to see capabilities
filecap [ -a | -d | /dir | /dir/file [cap1 cap2 ...] ]
filecap is a program that prints out a report of programs with file based capabilities. If a file is not in the report or there is no
report at all, no capabilities were found. For expedience, the default is to check only the directories in the PATH environmental variable.
If the -a command line option is given, then all directories will be checked. If a directory is passed, it will recursively check that
directory. If a path to a file is given, it will only check that file. If the path to the file includes capabilities, then they are written
to the file.
OPTIONS -a This tells the program to show all capabilities starting from the / directory. Normally the PATH environmental variable is used to
show you capabilities on files you are likely to execute.
-d This dumps all capabilities for reference.
To check file capabilities in $PATH:
To check file capabilities of whole system:
To check file capabilities recursively in a directory:
To check file capabilities of a specific program:
To list all possible capabilities:
To set a file capability on a specific program:
filecap /bin/ping net_raw net_admin

We have quite a few threads about this subject. I have collected some of them and arranged them by the OS which is primarily discussed in the thread. That is because the exact procedure depends on the OS involved. What's more, since you often need to interact with the boot process, the... (0 Replies)
I'm writing a command shell, and I want to be able to detect when the user presses an arrow key (otherwise it just prints [[A, [[B, etc.). I know it's relatively easy (although somewhat more time-consuming) to detect keystrokes in noncanonical mode, but I've noticed that the bash shell detects... (4 Replies)
I'm learning off Linux (Ubuntu) right now. I want to move up to Unix, but I don't want to rush like I did when it came to Windows --> to Linux. What is the best Unix OS that fits in pretty well with Ubuntu.
In other words is there kind of an equal Linux with Unix?
Also what do I need to... (10 Replies)
I noticed my hostname is <my-full-name>s-macbook.local. I'm not sure exactly what information leaves the local network, and whether the hostname is included, but if it is, this would mean people on the Internet can look at my hostname and see who I am. Before anyone says that's not possible,... (4 Replies)
