Better document the (lack of) BlueTooth support in Tails
Currently, the only reference to Bluetooth support in Tails is in https://tails.boum.org/doc/advanced_topics/wireless_devices.
Which is misleading since Tails doesn’t include the required software stack to do anything useful with BlueTooth out of the box.
People reported being able to use a Bluetooth keyboard after installing the `gnome-bluetooth` package and its dependencies. But we don’t want to encourage people to use BlueTooth input devices as they are insecure when trying to protect from a local adversary. Other use cases of BlueTooth might be worth being supported (connecting to Internet via a smartphone for example).
Note that we shouldn’t consider this as a corner case as recent iMac
comes with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse by
What we should do:
- Document this as a security feature somewhere. Maybe /doc/advanced_topics/wireless_devices/ is good enough.
- Document this as a known issue and point to the doc explaining why.
This way we don’t even have to add it to the FAQ.
