       crda - send to the kernel a wireless regulatory domain for a given ISO / IEC 3166 alpha2




       crda is the Linux wireless central regulatory domain agent.  crda is intended to be used
       by udev scripts and should not be run manually unless debugging udev scripts.  crda is
       triggered to run by the kernel by sending a udev event upon a new regulatory domain
       change. Regulatory domain changes are triggered by the wireless kernel subsystem (upon
       initialization and on reception of country IEs), wireless drivers, or userspace (see iw ).
       Upon a regulatory domain change the kernel sends a udev change event for the regulatory
       platform. The kernel ignores regulatory domains sent to it if it does not expect them. The
       regulatory domain is read by crda from the regulatory.bin file.

RSA Digital Signature

       If built with openssl or gcrypt support crda will have embedded into it an RSA digital
       signature which will prevent it from reading corrupted or non-authored regulatory.bin
       files. Authorship is respected by the RSA public key packed into crda.  This specific crda
       package has been built with an RSA public key from John Linville (the Linux wireless
       kernel maintainer) and as such will only read regulatory.bin files signed by him. For
       further information see the regulatory.bin man page.


       A udev regulatory rule must be put in place in order to receive and parse udev events from
       the kernel in order to get udev to call crda with the passed ISO / IEC 3166 alpha2 country
       code.  An example udev rule which can be used (usually in
       /lib/udev/rules.d/85-regulatory.rules ):

       KERNEL=="regulatory*", ACTION=="change", SUBSYSTEM=="platform", RUN+="/sbin/crda"

Environment variable

       Set the COUNTRY environment variable with a specific ISO / IEC 3166 alpha2 country code
       and then run crda without arguments. This will send a regulatory domain for that alpha2 to
       the kernel.
