System Extensions/ Kernel Extensions applications bypass

Contributor III

Whats the criteria of a third party application to require System/ Kernel extension bypass and others not. For instance Google Chrome, VLC, Office 2019, these application never require a Kernel/ System Extension bypass, However, Symantec, iProjection, Arduino, Sophos do.

How do we differentiate ?

For me, testing. Install any software and launch the software you are deploying and see what kernel extension, system extensions, and privacy prompts.

I screen shot these so I don’t forget, and use jamfs pppc utility to upload to the server.

In addition, can’t pull them up at the moment, you can run terminal commands to read out some of this information on a existing machine.
