The parameters to secmodel_eval(9) are: id the unique identifier of secmodel_suser: "org.netbsd.secmodel.suser" what a string, "is-root". arg the kauth(9) credentials (kauth_cred_t) of the caller. ret a boolean, set by secmodel_suser to true when the credentials are equivalent to super-user, false otherwise.
RETURN TYPES
If successful, the evaluation returns 0 with the ret argument being either true or false.
