       ssh_filter_btrbk - ssh command filter script for btrbk

SYNOPSIS [-s|--source] [-t|--target] [-d|--delete]
           [-c|--compress] [-i|--info] [--snapshot] [--send] [--receive]
           [-p|--restrict-path <path>] [-l|--log] [--sudo]

DESCRIPTION restricts SSH commands to btrfs commands used by btrbk. It examines
       the SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND environment variable (set by sshd) and executes it only if it
       matches commands used by btrbk. The accepted commands are specified by the "--source",
       "--target", "--delete" and "--info" options.

       Note that the following btrfs commands are always allowed: "btrfs subvolume show", "btrfs
       subvolume list".

       Note that commands for stream compression (pipes through gzip, pigz, bzip2, pbzip2, xz,
       lzop, lz4), rate limiting (pipes through "pv -L"), and stream buffer (pipes through
       "mbuffer") are always allowed.

       Example line in /root/.ssh/authorized_keys on a backup target host:

           command=" --target --delete --restrict-path /mnt/btr_backup" ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1...hwumXFRQBL


       -s, --source
           Allow commands for backup source: "btrfs subvolume snapshot", "btrfs send". Equivalent
           to "--snapshot --send".

       -t, --target
           Allow commands for backup target: "btrfs receive", "realpath" and "cat

       -d, --delete
           Allow commands for subvolume deletion: "btrfs subvolume delete". This is used for
           backup source if snapshot_preserve_daily is not set to “all”, and for backup targets
           if target_preserve_daily is not set to “all”.

       -c, --compress
           Allow commands for stream compression (pipes through gzip, pigz, bzip2, pbzip2, xz,
           lzo, lz4). Needed if stream_compress is set.

       -i, --info
           Allow informative commands: "btrfs subvolume find-new", "btrfs filesystem usage". This
           is used by btrbk info and diff commands.

           Allow btrfs snapshot command: "btrfs subvolume snapshot".

           Allow btrfs send command: "btrfs send".

           Allow btrfs receive command: "btrfs receive".

       -p, --restrict-path <path>
           Restrict btrfs commands to <path>.

       -l, --log
           Log ACCEPT and REJECT messages to the system log.

           Allow btrfs commands to be called via sudo. Enable this if you have "backend
           btrfs-progs-sudo" in your btrbk configuration file.
