superuser access to aliases database file

I have written a python milter which needs to read the email aliases
database (a dbhash file). Unfortunately this file is owned by root. I
assume that this is for security reasons. I am told that I shouldn't run
my milter as root, also for security reasons.

Is there a simple, secure way to read this file?
