ucspi-ipc implements D. J. Bernstein's UCSPI protocol in the Unix domain, making it trivial to set up clients or servers on Unix sockets. ucspi- ipc comes with utilities using credential passing on Unix sockets, which are designed to act like a fine-grained and efficient sudo without the need for setuid programs.
