padded cell


 
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"
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 naivet'e (see
naive).  Also "padded cell environment".
