Actually, that's something that security-minded people have long been
dreaming of: capture all traffic on the network interface(s), perhaps
even in promisc mode, but somehow at the same time not running the
sniffer itself as root, but as a user with much lower privileges.

I guess a clever SELinux policy would achieve the same thing. Now that
SELinux is in Fedora, i guess we could as well put it to good work. ;-)

Running Ethereal, tcpdump and Snort in a SELinux "cage" would be
wonderful. I'm looking forward to it.
