         The ChrootDirectory must contain the necessary files and directo‐
         ries to support the user's session.  For an interactive session
         this requires at least a shell, typically sh(1), and basic /dev
         nodes such as null(4), zero(4), stdin(4), stdout(4), stderr(4),
         arandom(4) and tty(4) devices.  For file transfer sessions using
         “sftp”, no additional configuration of the environment is neces‐
         sary if the in-process sftp server is used, though sessions which
         use logging do require /dev/log inside the chroot directory (see
         sftp-server(8) for details).
