Status in thunderbolt-tools package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  == Overview ==

  Intel Thunderbolt userspace components provides components for using
  Intel Thunderbolt controllers with security level features.
  Thunderboltâ„¢ technology is a transformational high-speed, dual
  protocol I/O that provides unmatched performance with up to 40Gbps bi-
  directional transfer speeds. It provides flexibility and simplicity by
  supporting both data (PCIe, USB3.1) and video (DisplayPort) on a
  single cable connection that can daisy-chain up to six devices.

  = Requirements =

  1. Availability
     Package is in universe:

  2. Rationale
     Package a device enabler for users with Thunderbolt technology

  3. Security:
     No security issues exposed so far. However, the tools have only been in 
Ubuntu since
     2017-12-09, so this currently is less than the 90 days threshold.

  4. Quality assurance:
     * Manual is provided
     * No debconf questions higher than medium
     * No major outstanding bugs. I'm also helping Intel fix issues that I'm 
finding with
       static analysis tools such as scan-build, cppcheck and CoverityScan
       Bugs outstanding:
         #883857 please backport for stretch-backports
         #882525 thunderbolt-tools: FTBFS on kFreeBSD: 
_ZN5boost6system15system_categoryEv undefined
           - I can fix this, but it makes no sense to run on kFreeBSD
     * Exotic Hardware: Only Thunderbolt supported H/W is required, this is an 
industry standard
       and the support for the tools are in the 4.13+ kernels
     * No Test Suite shipped with the package
     * Does not rely on obsolete or demoted packages

  5. UI standards:
     * This is a CLI tool. Tool has normal CLI style short help and man pages
     * No desktop file required as it is a CLI tool.

  6. Binary Dependencies:
        libboost-dev                    (main)
        libboost-filesystem-dev         (main)
        libboost-program-options-dev    (main)
        udev                            (main)

  7. Standards compliance:
     lintian clean and meets the FHS + Debian Policy standards to the best of 
my knowledge

  8. Maintenance
     * Package owning team: The Ubuntu Kernel Team
     * Debian package maintained by Colin Ian King (myself from the Kernel Team)

  9. Background Information
     The user-space components implement device approval support:

     a. Easier interaction with the kernel module for approving connected 
     b. ACL for auto-approving devices white-listed by the user.

     Tools provided by this package:

      tbtacl - triggered by udev (see the udev rules in tbtacl.rules).
  It auto-approves devices that are found in ACL.

      tbtadm - user-facing CLI tool. It provides operations for device
  approval, handling the ACL and more.

      The user-space components operate in coordination with the
  upstream Thunderbolt kernel driver (found in v4.13) to provide the
  Thunderbolt functionalities. These components are NOT compatible with
  the old out-of-tree Thunderbolt kernel module.

  = Security checks = Search in the National Vulnerability 
Database using the package as a keyword
    * No CVEs found search for the package as a keyword
    * No security advisories found

    Ubuntu CVE Tracker
      * No
      * No
      * No

      Check for security relevant binaries. If any are present, this
      requires a more in-depth security review.

      Executables which have the suid or sgid bit set.
        * Not applicable

      Executables in /sbin, /usr/sbin.
        * None in these paths

      Packages which install daemons (/etc/init.d/*)
        * No

      Packages which open privileged ports (ports < 1024).
        * No

       Add-ons and plugins to security-sensitive software (filters,
       scanners, UI skins, etc)
        * This does exec tbtacl from udev with new udev rules, so this
          needs security checking
