 Securing Systems with chroot

On Lamp brings us: Securing Systems with chroot.

"When a process requests to chroot to a given directory, any future system calls issued by the process will see that directory as the filesystem root. It becomes impossible to access files and binaries outside the tree rooted on the new root directory. This environment is known as a chroot jail."
