Additional Hosts for macOS connectivity

Most versions of macOS will check package and binary signatures for validity. This may require contacting apple servers. Please refer to Apple's documentation at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210060

Third Party Firewalls

Some third party firewall software reports outbound connections. Due to how go (a computer language) does DNS resolution, this is sometimes reported as a connection to an IP address, and not to the DNS name. This is a reporting discrepancy.
