I'd love to see an evidence source based on my public IP address, or if there is a sane way to do this using applescript?

You can get your IP with the following shell command:
curl -s|sed -e 's/.*Current IP Address: //' -e 's/<.*$//'

Should be easy to create a script that compares this value to whatever you want.

Any ideas on how to only trigger it when internal IP changes..? seems overkill to have to run it every [n] seconds..

I'm not sure it's been raised but the concept of chained events would be a great addition

Hmm, not without programming an actual evidence source, only then can you register for network interface events.

I'm not sure I understand your concept of chained events correctly, but maybe you should create a specific issue for it and explain it there.

👍 for this idea.

I had a script which used to check my external IP against a known local list (script array); but this approach became cumbersome to maintain with proxy server authentication (at work, and various customer sites), something inside controlplane with OS integration into locations/keychains/etc would be a nice-to-have 😄

supposedly coming in a future release #205 (comment)
