But the process listening on port 80 is in the jail, which is really all
that matters in this scenario. It's possible for you to assign an IP to
the jail and have zero services outside the jail listening on that IP.
This should cover your concerns as well. If you really want an
"interface" that is only assigned to the jail you'll have to look at
using VNET jails. Failing that, perhaps run a full FreeBSD bhyve VM
