It takes advantage of the POSIX capabilities support in Linux so that it may perform dhcp client duties while remaining non-root and confined to a chroot jail. ndhc is written in C and relies on no external libraries aside from the C standard library. Security is obviously ndhc's primary goal. ndhc consists of two programs, ndhc and ifchd. ifchd listens on a UNIX domain socket to manage interface change requests. ndhc is a minimal dhcp client, derived from udhcpc, that handles dhcp protocol issues and communicates with ifchd to request configuration changes. ndhc currently only supports systems that run the Linux kernel (>=2.2). ndhc is written with portability as a goal, and it would not be difficult to port it to run properly on BSD-derived systems. I outline the platform dependencies in the ndhc documentation." Alexander
