Little Snitch is a software firewall for Mac OS X. It can be used to monitor applications, preventing or permitting them to connect to attached networks through advanced rules. It is produced and maintained by the Austrian firm Objective Development Software GmbH.

If an application or process attempts to establish a network connection Little Snitch prevents the connection. A dialog is presented which allows one to deny or permit the connection on a one-time or permanent basis. The dialog allows one to restrict the parameters of the connection, restricting it to a specific port, protocol or domain. An integral network monitor allows one to see ongoing traffic in real time with domain names and traffic direction displayed.

The application received a positive 4.5/5 review from Macworld[1]
