padded cell n.
Where you put lusers so they can't hurt
anything. A program that limits a luser to a carefully restricted
subset of the capabilities of the host system (for example, the
rsh(1) utility on USG Unix). Note that this is different
from an iron box because it is overt and not aimed at
enforcing security so much as protecting others (and the luser)
from the consequences of the luser's boundless naivete (see
naive). Also `padded cell environment'.
