Santa 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.

No actual benefit to enduser that I could see running it since it came out. Waste of space.
