typedef void * scmp_filter_ctx;
void seccomp_release(scmp_filter_ctx ctx);
Link with -lseccomp.
Releases the seccomp filter in ctx which was first initialized by
seccomp_init(3) or seccomp_reset(3) and frees any memory
associated with the given seccomp filter context. Any seccomp filters loaded
into the kernel are not affected.
Does not return a value.
int main(int argc, char *argv)
ctx = seccomp_init(SCMP_ACT_KILL);
if (ctx == NULL)
/* ... */
While the seccomp filter can be generated independent of the kernel, kernel
support is required to load and enforce the seccomp filter generated by
