What's it used for?
-------------------------

Description follows:

"Cagibi is a daemon for SSDP (the discovery part of UPnP) and, if accessible
via D-Bus, used to also show UPnP devices/services in the network:/ kio-slave
listings, otherwise silently ignore that data source. If the url info is
present, a click on the UPnP device/service item will forward the user to the
web interface of the respective device/service, e.g. of the router or media
server."

You can also check the following URL for information:

Who uses it?
------------------

- The KDE network:/ kio-slave from kdebase4-runtime package
- Amarok

Possibly more that I don't know of...

Does it run as root?
---------------------------

After checking "ps aux" output, YES:

~ > ps aux | ack cagibi
root 9337 0.0 0.0 44916 3920 ? S 19:33 0:00
/usr/bin/cagibid

If so why?
--------------

I' m not really sure about this. I made some research but the only relevant
thing I could find is from the URL I posted above:

"the daemon as the only one interfacing to network regarding SSDP would run as
system user with almost no rights, so exposing less of a risk"

If anything more is required please let me know.
