aa-easyprof [option] <path to binary>
aa-easyprof provides an easy to use interface for AppArmor policy
generation. aa-easyprof supports the use of templates and policy groups
to quickly profile an application. Please note that while this tool can
help with policy generation, its utility is dependent on the quality of
the templates, policy groups and abstractions used. Also, this tool may
create policy which is less restricted than creating policy by hand or
with aa-genprof and aa-logprof.
aa-easyprof accepts the following arguments:
-t TEMPLATE, --template=TEMPLATE
Specify which template to use. May specify either a system template
from /usr/share/apparmor/easyprof/templates or a filename for the
template to use. If not specified, use
-p POLICYGROUPS, --policy-groups=POLICYGROUPS
Specify POLICY as a comma-separated list of policy groups. See
--list-templates for supported policy groups. The available policy
groups are in /usr/share/apparmor/easyprof/policy. Policy groups
are simply groupings of AppArmor rules or policies. They are
similar to AppArmor abstractions, but usually encompass more policy
-a ABSTRACTIONS, --abstractions=ABSTRACTIONS
Specify ABSTRACTIONS as a comma-separated list of AppArmor
abstractions. It is usually recommended you use policy groups
instead, but this is provided as a convenience. AppArmor
abstractions are located in /etc/apparmor.d/abstractions. See
apparmor.d(5) for details.
-r PATH, --read-path=PATH
Specify a PATH to allow owner reads. May be specified multiple
times. If the PATH ends in a '/', then PATH is treated as a
directory and reads are allowed to all files under this directory.
Can optionally use '/*' at the end of the PATH to only allow reads
to files directly in PATH.
-w PATH, --write-dir=PATH
Like --read-path but also allow owner writes in additions to reads.
-n NAME, --name=NAME
Specify NAME of policy. If not specified, NAME is set to the name
of the binary. The NAME of the policy is often used as part of the
path in the various templates.
Set VAR to VALUE in the resulting policy. This typically only makes
List available policy groups.
Display policy groups specified with --policy.
Use PATH instead of system policy-groups directory.
Specify author of the policy.
Specify copyright of the policy.
Specify comment for the policy.
Example usage for a program named 'foo' which is installed in /opt/foo:
$ aa-easyprof --template=user-application
