Yes, it's similar to Pledge/Unveil but with fine-grained control (and a
more flexible design). And because it is not tied to syscall, there is
no similar issues than with seccomp and libc. In fact, there is no more
relationship with seccomp neither. The version I'm working on is similar
in principle to the patch series v10 [1], without the usage complexity
brought by eBPF, but with a more polished file-based access-control. The
demo from LSS 2018 [2] gives an overview of the possibilities.
