Look in your /etc/passwd to get the name of a user which fam should
use for unauthenticated clients.  (Any user will do; you just want it
to be one which has minimal access to files on your system.)

Then add a line with that user in your /etc/fam.conf:

#  untrusted_user is the user which will be used for unauthenticated
#  clients.  If a file can't be stat'ed by this user, those clients won't be
#  able to fam it.  The value can be a user name or a numeric UID.
untrusted_user = whichever_user_you_choose
