scprotect is implementation of system call for setting or unsetting
P_PROTECTED flag. It's similar to madvise(2) behaviour MADV_PROTECT,
but may be used for already running processes. Also rc.d/scprotect
scripts allow you to set protection flag even if process was
restarted by user.

* This port contains a prebuilt kernel module. Due to the ever changing       *
* nature of FreeBSD it may be necessary to rebuild the module after a kernel  *
* source update.  To do this reinstall the port.                              *
Also you may set for example
scprotect_progs="sshd named"
to protect those application even if they are restarted
