==Libvirt Client Access Control==
+
* new spice, spice-protocol version? http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/spice-devel/2014-May/016876.html
  
The '''libvirt''' client allows for the setting of permission rules which can be applied to all managed objects and API operations, thus allowing for all client connections to be limited to a minimal set of rules and privileges.  
+
* libvirt 1.2.6
There are three levels of access which can be assigned:
+
  
* Unauthenticated - used for all connections, this state allows all API operations that are required to complete authentication. Following a successful authentication, two more levels can be assigned:
+
* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=998503
** Unrestricted - full access to all API operations
+
** Restricted - read only access
+
 
+
System administrators can set permission rules for authenticated connections. Every API call in libvirt has a set of permissions that are validated against the object that is being used. For example, user A wants to change a parameter in the domain object. When the user tries to save the change, '''virDomainSetSchedulerParametersFlags''' method will check whether the client user has the write permission on the domain object instance passed in as a parameter. Additional checks and permission settings can be processed as well. Filtering can also be done to see which clients have permissions on which objects to allow for smother administration of permissions.
+
The '''libvirtd.conf''' configuration file is responsible for setting the access permissions. It uses the access_drivers parameter to enable this operation. Note that if more than one access driver is requested, all must succeed in order for permission to be granted.

==Virt-manager Snapshots==
+
Virtual Machine Manager ('''virt-manager''') allows for easy management and monitoring of KVM guest virtual machine snapshots. Note that '''virt-manager''' will pause the guest virtual machine for a few seconds while taking the snapshot.
+

==ARM emulation on x86 Host Physical Machines==
+
Changes have been made to have smoother emulation of ARM guest virtual machines running on x86 hosts using standard '''libvirt''' tools, including '''virsh''', '''virt-manager''' and '''virt-install'''.
+
'''qemu''' has an ARM emulator that works well and is actively used in the  Fedora ARM effort. However '''libvirt''' and '''virt-manager''' currently have  issues launching '''qemu-system-arm''' VMs, mostly by encoding x86 assumptions  in the generated command line that cause '''qemu-system-arm''' to fail to  start. Changes have been made to fix this issue.
