I knew this was coming ;)
We police network connection in a similar manner to Little Snitch. Network connections can be either denied, allowed, or up to the user to decide in an interactive manner.
For a given process making a connection, we ask the corresponding user that owns the process. However, no logged-in users owns daemon or anything above a login session.
We mean to allow, if the user wants to, to redirect questions about connections made by those processes to be redirected to the current logged-in (admin) user.
