Unfortunately, making the program setuid is considered insecure.
Another solution is to use sudo to restrict who can start the service, i.e the
messagebus, but the sniffer still have to root permission, that's too much
The ultimate solution is to use selinux, it allows to run the sniffer with the
messagebus uid and allow to open and read a raw socket.
