[Dev] Smack questions

The primary difference is going to be when the dbus policy gets installed. If you put it in the manifest it get install when the package gets installed with RPM. If you write the policy directly you have to add it to the dbus configuration yourself.

What is the difference, if any of protecting a DBus object via DBus policy[1] rather than in a SMACK manifest[2]?


<policy smack="AMB::machinegun" >

  <allow send_destination="org.automotive.message.broker"



      send_member="Set" />

    <dbus name="org.automotive.message.broker" own="AMB" bus="system">
      <node name="/org/automotive/uncategorized/MachineGunTurretStatus">
        <interface name="org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties">
          <method name="Set" >
            <annotation name="com.tizen.smack" value="AMB::machinegun" />
