macOS JAMF agent signed app

New Contributor

Hi guys,

I took part as a listener in a discussion regarding the JAMF agent and the JAMF Server hosted in AWS. The reason for this conversation was to look at ways how to deny all Internet traffic but still allow the communication between the agent the server. One of the guys mentioned that we can't do this with the build-in macOS firewall and that the agent is a signed application. Can anyone please tell me what's behind the whole signing and why it could be a problem ?
