ISL Light - Desktop v4 - Desktop Plugin - move issc_stream to app bundle on macOS (FEATURE) [ISLLIGHT-5357] More


Accessibility section of the macOS Mojave Security & Privacy panel allows apps to control your Mac in various ways. Certain ISL Light/ISL Light Client apps and binaries need permission to gain access to Accessibility system services. One of such processes is issc_stream, which is using Accessibility system services to control desktop. In previous versions, issc_stream was located in different folders, so users were unable to pre-approve the application ahead of time to use Accessibility system services. We have now moved issc_stream binary to application bundle, so users can specify its Bundle ID in MDM tools to allow desktop control.

Identifier type: Bundle ID
Identifier: com.islonline.isllight.issc_stream
Code Requirement: identifier "com.islonline.isllight.issc_stream" and anchor apple generic and certificate 1[field.1.2.840.113635.] /* exists / and certificate leaf[field.1.2.840.113635.] / exists */ and certificate leaf[subject.OU] = GP5P6H7RRF
Accessibility Privacy Preferences: allow

Note: There are other binaries and applications that need to be pre-approved in order to have fully functional remote control. Please see the following link for information:
