Description (last modified by tomek)

The library should load, even if there's not /tmp/user_chk_registry.txt file.

From the setup perspective it would be reasonable to just fall back to normal operation if the file is missing. From the security persective, it would probably be good to treat all packets as unregistered users.

I don't have any preference. Whatever the choice is, it should be well documented.

For now that library will act as a substitute for classification. Once proper classification is done, it will be relieved of doing that function. It is unclear what we'll do next with it.

In any case, this is our first lib, so it will be used as example. Hence we need easy to read introdution for it. It should probably be part of the hooks documentation.

Also output file should use the same format as input file, so it will be easy to copy data between them.
