Consider Packaging Opensnitch
Closed, WontfixPublic


Name: opensnitch


OpenSnitch works on the same principles as the macOS version, being a
host-based firewall that notifies users when local apps are attempting to
initiate new outgoing network connections.

When this happens, OpenSnitch will display a popup, asking the user for
instructions on how to deal with this new process.

All user decisions are saved as rules in local JSON files. Users can edit
these rules later to fine-tune the firewall or import/export rules from/to
other systems.

Easier said than done but it will pay off.

The software seems to be labeled as work in progress and they don't have any releases tagged on GitHub at the moment...

This is way too young for me to consider, but it's promising.

Need to see a solid release first.
