Hi, NetworkManager currently only supports
one PolicyKit privilege. That is whether a user is allowed to modify
administrator defined connections or not. There is no way to disallow
users to define their own network configurations.
There's only org.freedesktop.network-manager-settings.system.modify,
introduce something like
org.freedesktop.network-manager-settings.user.modify so NM can
determine whether it should accept user settings.
Also we could separate the action in more grained, such as
and the same for .user .
And you may even want to specifically allow or
disallow adding for specific network types like wired, wireless, VPN, etc.
You probably also want to have the ability to enable/disable wireless in general and enable/disable networking covered.
You can default all of these to the current settings, but adding these would allow more lock-down opportunities.
