CONFIG_SECURITY_SMACK_BRINGUP: Reporting on access granted by Smack rules

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SECURITY_SMACK_BRINGUP:

Help text

Enable the bring-up ("b") access mode in Smack rules. When access is granted by a rule with the "b" mode a message about the access requested is generated. The intention is that a process can be granted a wide set of access initially with the bringup mode set on the rules. The developer can use the information to identify which rules are necessary and what accesses may be inappropriate. The developer can reduce the access rule set once the behavior is well understood. This is a superior mechanism to the oft abused "permissive" mode of other systems. If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
