Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-03-27 09:46:25 CET
tlwebaccess only requires root for a few things, so we should avoid running as root except for those cases.

The things that require root are:

 - Starting tlstunnel.

 - PAM authentication.

These require us to run as the relevant user (or root):

 - Talking to vsmmaster

 - Verifying session info on the agent.
