snort-users: [Snort-devel] Which RBAC profile could run snort on

[Snort-devel] Which RBAC profile could run snort on Solaris.

Hi, experts,

I am trying to port snort to OpenSolaris, and there is one question I am not quite understand. On Solaris, every utility has it own RBAC to control the privilege from security points of view. But for snort, I am not sure which RBAC privilege could work for snort utility. I tried some users and roles(such as adm, dladm, postgres, zfssnap", neither could work. So only "root" could run snort utility so far.

Could anybody tell me what the profile and auths should be given to snort utility in order to run snort utility on OpenSolaris.
