Description Hans de Goede 2011-04-05 07:44:30 UTC
From a security pov copy and paste between the guest and the client is not always desirable. So we need to be able to enable/disable this. The best place to do this from an administration pov is on the hypervisor, and thus in the spice-server.

Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2011-04-05 07:45:51 UTC
This is implemented by these 2 upstream commits:

Which are also present on the 0.8 branch, moving to post.

Comment 3 Cameron Meadors 2011-06-15 14:54:34 UTC
How is this being implemented?  Will there be an option for qemu-kvm?  If so, what would that be and how do we use it?  If this is already documented somewhere just point me to that.

It will be an additional option to the -spice cmdline option, called

So if for example you normally pass the following spice options:
qemu -spice port=5932,disable-ticketing

You would use the following to disable copy paste:
qemu -spice port=5932,disable-ticketing,disable-copy-paste

Also see bug 693645.
