simple interprocess messaging system

D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications. Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in terms of complexity.

D-Bus supports broadcast messages, asynchronous messages (thus decreasing latency), authentication, and more. It is designed to be low-overhead; messages are sent using a binary protocol, not using XML. D-Bus also supports a method call mapping for its messages, but it is not required; this makes using the system quite simple.

It comes with several bindings, including GLib, Python, Qt and Java.

The daemon can be found in the dbus package.

  * Non-maintainer upload by the Security Team.
  * Backport upstream patch to fix a possible call stack overflow and thus
    denial of service, when processing messages with excessive nested variants.
    This fix restricts the nesting level to 64 (52-CVE-2010-4352.patch).
