Robert Watson, Jonathan Anderson and Ben Laurie are the principle 'who'
behind Capsicum.   Now, if you'ld asked 'What is that?' I'd've pointed
you towards

   https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/security/capsicum/

It's a "lightweight OS capability and sandbox framework," or in other
words a way of enforcing restrictions on what objects -- particularly
those built from foreign data eg. javascript in web pages -- can modify
or access on your local system.

        Cheers,

        Matthew
