#24037 already has this purpose, and would be a superior solution to ptrace() (which has its share of nasty issues when used for sandboxing especially in multithreaded applications, in addition to being very slow). It is far easier to implement (I could do it in a day once #14132 which is blocking it is resolved) and far more secure.

seccomp is Linux-specific. ptrace works everywhere. (or, I guess you have used ptrace, doesn't really work anywhere...)

Yeah I think #24037 is the way to go but that is Linux specific as pointed out.

ptrace() is a mess and I honestly don't think it is a good idea, the multi threaded part is not going to be fun.
