Setup and configure Firejail

DebOps firejail

Travis CI test-suite Ansible Galaxy

Firejail is a SUID program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications using Linux namespaces and seccomp-bpf.

This Ansible role allows you to setup and configure Firejail.


  • Install Firejail from jessie-backports or other configured APT repositories. debops.apt can be used to enable Backports if needed.
  • Sandbox programs system wide by placing a symlink to firejail into the PATH so that firejail can wrap program invocations and sandbox the invoked program using security profiles that Firejail ships or that the system administrator defines.


This role requires at least Ansible v2.1.3. To install it, run:

ansible-galaxy install debops-contrib.firejail


More information about debops-contrib.firejail can be found in the official debops-contrib.firejail documentation.

Are you using this as a standalone role without DebOps?
