Summary0005598: Add websocket yes/no option to security-group
DescriptionI have a KiwiIRC instance that uses websockets to connect to my server and that way eliminate the need to use the KiwiIRC gateway.
When I was using the gateway I needed to use a webirc block which worked fine.
The problem is that websockets are direct connection and therefore there's no need for webirc, which triggers my antirandom module threshold.
I'd like to know if it's possible and feasible in any way to also exempt websockets from antirandom checking.

I have renamed this request from "Extend antirandom module to also expect websockets connections" to "Add websocket yes/no option to security-group". Which is basically what the request would be now that we have the security group / mask item stuff in mid-2022.

I can look at it post-6.0.4. We'll see.

Related but also slightly off-topic:
Usually KiwiIRC and other trigger antirandom because they include the IP address in hexadecimal somewhere, such as the ident. If that is the case then I recommend you to disable that option. Then antirandom won't be triggered and your users also have better privacy.
Otherwise I am kinda wondering why KiwiIRC would trigger antirandom, or do people just type hfsdlhsfdklhsfd for their realname or something? :D

Done, thanks for the suggestion.

    Add security group "websocket-users" and add security-group options
    security-group::websocket and security-group::exclude-websocket,
    all similar to how security-group::webirc works but for websocket.
