To permanently allow, edit "/etc/authorization" and change the value of the
"system.privilege.taskport" key to "allow" (if I remember correctly). Be
careful though, as this will allow any program on the system to use
task_for_pid. I think you can further play with this to allow only a
specific user or group but I haven't tried it yet.

To allow the use of task_for_pid only for the current SSH session use:
security authorize -l -c system.privilege.taskport
