The Connection Manager (ConnMan) project provides a daemon for managing internet connections within embedded devices running the Linux operating system.
ConnMan is designed to be slim and to use as few resources as possible, so it can be easily integrated.
ConnMan is a fully modular system that can be extended, through plug-ins, to support all kinds of wired or wireless technologies. The plug-in approach allows for easy adaption and modification for various use cases.
ConnMan uses modern infrastructure, like D-Bus and netlink, to provide a native integration into the operating system. While netlink is used on the system level to communicate with networking devices, the whole separation, between system daemon and user interface, is done through D-Bus.
Required external components:
· wpa_supplicant (with D-Bus extensions) for WiFi access
· BlueZ for Bluetooth PAN support
· oFono for 3G data support
· PolicyKit for security policies (optional)
