HCSECD.CONF(5)		  FreeBSD File Formats Manual		HCSECD.CONF(5)

     hcsecd.conf -- hcsecd(8) configuration file

     The hcsecd.conf file is the configuration file for	the hcsecd(8) Blue-
     tooth link	keys/PIN codes management daemon.

     The hcsecd.conf file is a free-form ASCII text file.  It is parsed	by the
     recursive-descent parser built into hcsecd(8).  The file may contain
     extra tabs	and newlines for formatting purposes.  Keywords	in the file
     are case-sensitive.  Comments may be placed anywhere within the file
     (except within quotes).  Comments begin with the ``#'' character and end
     at	the end	of the line.

     The hcsecd.conf file consists of a	list of	device entries.	 Each device
     entry defines a link key or PIN code for a	remote Bluetooth device.  Each
     remote Bluetooth device is	identified by its unique BD_ADDR.

     The device	entry

     device { option argument; [option argument;] }

     The following section describes all supported options and arguments

     bdaddr BD_ADDR
	     Specify remote device BD_ADDR for the entry.

     name device_name
	     Specify user friendly name	for the	entry.	Name is	a string in a

     key nokey
	     Specify no	link key for the entry.

     pin PIN_code
	     Specify PIN code for the entry.  PIN code is a string upto	16

     A sample hcsecd.conf file

     # Default entry is	applied	if no better match found
     # It MUST have 00:00:00:00:00:00 as bdaddr
     device {
	     bdaddr  00:00:00:00:00:00;
	     name    "Default entry";
	     key     nokey;
	     pin     nopin;

     # Ericsson	T68 phone
     device {
	     bdaddr  00:80:37:5e:4d:d4;
	     name    "Ericsson T68 phone";
	     key     nokey;
	     pin     "0000"; # PIN code

     # Dummy device
     device {
	     bdaddr  00:11:22:33:44:55;
	     name    "Dummy";
	     key     0x00112233445566778899aabbccddeeff; # 16 bytes key
	     pin     nopin;
