ObjectiveFS supports file capabilities in versions 6.5 and newer.
Linux capabilities separates system access into different categories that can be independently enabled and disabled. Linux file capabilities allows enabling the different system permissions on a per-executable file basis.
To use ObjectiveFS with capabilities, mount your filesystem as usual (with
suid enabled) on your Linux server and run the corresponding capabilities command.

Remove all capabilities from a file:
