zx_job_set_policy

NAME

Set job security and resource policies.

SYNOPSIS

#include <zircon/syscalls.h>

zx_status_t zx_job_set_policy(zx_handle_t handle,
                              uint32_t options,
                              uint32_t topic,
                              const void* policy,
                              uint32_t count);

DESCRIPTION

Sets one or more security and/or resource policies to an empty job. The job's effective policies is the combination of the parent's effective policies and the policies specified in policy. The effect in the case of conflict between the existing policies and the new policies is controlled by options values:

  • ZX_JOB_POL_RELATIVE : policy is applied for the conditions not specifically overridden by the parent policy.
  • ZX_JOB_POL_ABSOLUTE : policy is applied for all conditions in policy or the syscall fails.

After this call succeeds any new child process or child job will have the new effective policy applied to it.

topic indicates the policy format. Supported values are ZX_JOB_POL_BASIC and ZX_JOB_POL_TIMER_SLACK.

ZX_JOB_POL_BASIC

A topic of ZX_JOB_POL_BASIC indicates that policy is an array of count entries of:

typedef struct zx_policy_basic {
    uint32_t condition;
    uint32_t policy;
} zx_policy_basic_t;

Where condition is one of + ZX_POL_BAD_HANDLE a process under this job is attempting to issue a syscall with an invalid handle. In this case, ZX_POL_ACTION_ALLOW and ZX_POL_ACTION_DENY are equivalent: if the syscall returns, it will always return the error ZX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE. + ZX_POL_WRONG_OBJECT a process under this job is attempting to issue a syscall with a handle that does not support such operation. + ZX_POL_VMAR_WX a process under this job is attempting to map an address region with write-execute access. + ZX_POL_NEW_VMO a process under this job is attempting to create a new vm object. + ZX_POL_NEW_CHANNEL a process under this job is attempting to create a new channel. + ZX_POL_NEW_EVENT a process under this job is attempting to create a new event. + ZX_POL_NEW_EVENTPAIR a process under this job is attempting to create a new event pair. + ZX_POL_NEW_PORT a process under this job is attempting to create a new port. + ZX_POL_NEW_SOCKET a process under this job is attempting to create a new socket. + ZX_POL_NEW_FIFO a process under this job is attempting to create a new fifo. + ZX_POL_NEW_TIMER a process under this job is attempting to create a new timer. + ZX_POL_NEW_PROCESS a process under this job is attempting to create a new process. + ZX_POL_NEW_PROFILE a process under this job is attempting to create a new profile. + ZX_POL_AMBIENT_MARK_VMO_EXEC a process under this job is attempting to use zx_vmo_replace_as_executable() with a ZX_HANDLE_INVALID as the second argument rather than a valid ZX_RSRC_KIND_VMEX. + ZX_POL_NEW_ANY is a special condition that stands for all of the above ZX_NEW conditions such as ZX_POL_NEW_VMO, ZX_POL_NEW_CHANNEL, ZX_POL_NEW_EVENT, ZX_POL_NEW_EVENTPAIR, ZX_POL_NEW_PORT, ZX_POL_NEW_SOCKET, ZX_POL_NEW_FIFO, and any future ZX_NEW policy. This will include any new kernel objects which do not require a parent object for creation.

Where policy is one of + ZX_POL_ACTION_ALLOW allow condition. + ZX_POL_ACTION_DENY prevent condition. + ZX_POL_ACTION_ALLOW_EXCEPTION generate an exception via the debug port. An exception generated this way acts as a breakpoint. The thread may be resumed after the exception. + ZX_POL_ACTION_DENY_EXCEPTION just like ZX_POL_ACTION_ALLOW_EXCEPTION, but after resuming condition is denied. + ZX_POL_ACTION_KILL terminate the process.

ZX_JOB_POL_TIMER_SLACK

A topic of ZX_JOB_POL_TIMER_SLACK indicates that policy is:

typedef struct zx_policy_timer_slack {
    zx_duration_t min_slack;
    uint32_t default_mode;
} zx_policy_timer_slack_t;

min_slack specifies the minimum amount of slack applied to timers and deadline-based events the job. Attempts to set a min_slack less than the parent job's min_slack are ignored. In other words, a job's min_slack is the maximum of the specified value and its parent job's min_slack.

default_mode specifies how slack will be applied when not otherwise indicated by the syscall arguments. A job's default_mode may be set regardless of its parent job's default_mode. The possible values for default_mode are: + ZX_TIMER_SLACK_CENTER + ZX_TIMER_SLACK_EARLY + ZX_TIMER_SLACK_LATE

See timer slack for more information.

When setting timer slack policy, options must be ZX_JOB_POL_RELATIVE and count must be 1.

RIGHTS

handle must be of type ZX_OBJ_TYPE_JOB and have ZX_RIGHT_SET_POLICY.

RETURN VALUE

zx_job_set_policy() returns ZX_OK on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.

NOTES

The ZX_POL_BAD_HANDLE policy does not apply when calling zx_object_get_info() with the topic ZX_INFO_HANDLE_VALID. All other topics and all other syscalls that take handles are subject to the policy.

ERRORS

ZX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS policy was not a valid pointer, or count was 0, or policy was not ZX_JOB_POL_RELATIVE or ZX_JOB_POL_ABSOLUTE, or topic was not ZX_JOB_POL_BASIC.

ZX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE handle is not valid handle.

ZX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE handle is not a job handle.

ZX_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED handle does not have ZX_POL_RIGHT_SET right.

ZX_ERR_BAD_STATE the job has existing jobs or processes alive.

ZX_ERR_OUT_OF_RANGE count is bigger than ZX_POL_MAX or condition is bigger than ZX_POL_MAX.

ZX_ERR_ALREADY_EXISTS existing policy conflicts with the new policy.

ZX_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED an entry in policy has an invalid value.

ZX_ERR_NO_MEMORY Failure due to lack of memory. There is no good way for userspace to handle this (unlikely) error. In a future build this error will no longer occur.
