+.TH LANDLOCK_CREATE_RULESET 2 2021-06-27 Linux "Linux Programmer's Manual"
+landlock_create_ruleset \- create a new Landlock ruleset
+.BR "#include <linux/landlock.h>" "  /* Definition of " LANDLOCK_* " constants */"
+.BR "#include <sys/syscall.h>" "     /* Definition of " SYS_* " constants */"
+.BI "int syscall(SYS_landlock_create_ruleset,
+.BI "            const struct landlock_ruleset_attr " attr ,
+.BI "            size_t " size " , __u32 " flags );
+A Landlock ruleset identifies a set of rules (i.e. actions on objects).
+.BR landlock_create_ruleset (2)
+system call enables creating a new file descriptor identifying a ruleset.
+This file descriptor can then be used by
+.BR landlock_add_rule (2)
+.BR landlock_restrict_self (2)
+\&.  See
+.BR landlock (7)
+for a global overview.
+.I attr
+specifies the properties of the new ruleset.  It points to the following
+.IP +4n
+struct landlock_ruleset_attr {
+	__u64 handled_access_fs;
+.I handled_access_fs
+is a bitmask of actions that is handled by this ruleset and should then be
+forbidden if no rule explicitly allow them
+.BR "Filesystem actions"
+.BR landlock (7)
+This enables simply restricting ambient rights (e.g., global filesystem
+access) and is needed for compatibility reasons.
+.I size
+must be specified as
+.I sizeof(struct landlock_ruleset_attr)
+for compatibility reasons.
+.I flags
+must be 0 if
+.I attr
+is used.  Otherwise,
+.I flags
+can be set to:
+.I attr
+is NULL and
+.I size
+is 0, then the returned value is the highest supported Landlock ABI version
+(starting at 1).  This version can be used for a best-effort security
+approach, which is encouraged when user space is not pinned to a specific
+kernel version.  All features documented in these man pages are available
+with the version 1.
+On success,
+.BR landlock_create_ruleset (2)
+returns a new Landlock ruleset file descriptor, or a Landlock ABI version
+according to
+.I flags
+.BR landlock_create_ruleset (2)
+can failed for the following reasons:
+Landlock is supported by the kernel but disabled at boot time.
+.I flags
+, or unknown access, or too small
+.I size
+.I size
+is too big.
+.I attr
+was not a valid address.
+Empty accesses (i.e.
+.I attr->handled_access_fs
+is 0).
+Landlock was added in Linux 5.13.
