Freshmeat page:


The Linux Port/Socket Pseudo ACLs patch allows an administrator to delegate privileges for some protected network resources to non-root users. The ACLs are generally used to run untrusted or insecure applications as an unprivileged process, thereby mitigating some undiscovered denial of service or root compromise. The ACLs cover protected ports, raw sockets, and packet sockets.
