Package: libu2f-udev
Version: 1.1.9-1
Severity: serious

The rules file contained in libu2f-udev is broken, at least when used with
eudev and Linux 5.x, in that appropriate permissions for FIDO U2F devices are
not being set. This effectively prevents them from being used.

If I replace every instance of

  KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM="hidraw"

with

  SUBSYSTEM="usb"

it starts functioning as intended.


If hidraw is needed udev and/or older Linux kernels to allow the rules to
work, then the following replacement should be used instead:

  SUBSYSTEM="usb|hidraw"

Dear Distributed Shenanigans <hyperspace.towel@googlemail.com>

Thanks for this bug report.

libu2f-host is no longer a forked package since ASCII. You would be better
reporting this issue directly to Debian's BTS.

As you might know, there is a newer package available in Debian/Unstable that
you might test, 1.1.10-1.

If you still have problems, and get no help from Debian, reply to this bug
report and state which version of Devuan you run, and especially which version
of eudev you use. More info about your problems, and how to reproduce the bug
might also be very helpful.

Thanks.
