bolt - Thunderbolt device manager

License: LGPLv2+
Vendor: Alcance Libre, Inc.
bolt is a system daemon to manage Thunderbolt devices via a D-BUS
API. Thunderbolt 3 introduced different security modes that require
devices to be authorized before they can be used. The D-Bus API can
be used to list devices, enroll them (authorize and store them in the
local database) and forget them again (remove previously enrolled
devices). It also emits signals if new devices are connected (or
removed). During enrollment devices can be set to be automatically
authorized as soon as they are connected. A command line tool, called
boltctl, can be used to control the daemon and perform all the above
mentioned tasks.

* Notes from the packager:
* GNOME3 has native support for Thunderbolt since 3.30.
* For KDE Plasma just install the plasma-thunderbolt package.
* Those users from other DEs who just want to connect any
* device without any * sort of manual work, just create or
* edit and add the following line to
* /etc/udev/rules.d/99-removable.rules:
* ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="thunderbolt", ATTR{authorized}=="0", ATTR{authorized}="1"
* This will authorize all devices automatically when they
* appear. However, keep in mind that this bypasses the
* security levels and makes the system
* vulnerable to DMA attacks.
