Google Chrome & chromium Linux Sandboxing

Postby cirrus_minor on Sat May 05, 2012 12:29 pm

This Is For Linux Only



Type into your Google Chrome or Chromium browser:
about:sandbox

Mine shows seccomp sandbox is enabled
1) Make a shortcut to the browser and in the properties edit command line to read:

google-chrome --enable-seccomp-sandbox %U

in chromium it should look similar to this

/usr/bin/chromium-browser --enable-seccomp-sandbox %U

in google chrome should be similar to this

/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --enable-seccomp-sandbox %U

2) X out of current browser session and start another using newly created shortcut

3) Again type in about:sandbox to url bar to verify that you are now sandboxed

Another cool tip i found for all operating systems using chrome is if you type chrome://flags into url bar you get options to tweak some hidden settings.

I hope you found this beneficial.
