Does OpenSSH allow unprivileged SSH daemon? I experimented with privilege separation but it requires one process running with elevated privileges and another process that could then run with user privileges. However, I could not find a way for a single daemon running unprivileged, so I am reaching out to the community hoping for some guidance.
