Whitelisting/blacklisting system for macOS.

Overview

Santa is a binary whitelisting/blacklisting system for macOS. It consists of a kernel extension that monitors for executions, a userland daemon that makes execution decisions based on the contents of a SQLite database, a GUI agent that notifies the user in case of a block decision and a command-line utility for managing the system and synchronizing the database with a server. It is named Santa because it keeps track of binaries that are naughty or nice.

What's new in Santa

Version 2021.1:
  • Added an optional self-managed cache for decision responses, which should help improve performance when running Santa as a system extension alongside another system extension. To enable this cache, set EnableSysxCache to <true/> in your Santa config profile.
  • Fixed santactl/fileinfo pulling embedded Info.plist files from 32-bit sections of fat binaries.
