bolt - Thunderbolt device manager

License: LGPLv2+
Vendor: Alcance Libre, Inc.
bolt is a system daemon to manage thunderbolt 3 devices via
a D-BUS API. Thunderbolt 3 features 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.
