Non-API Bound Privileges

Tizen application privileges are loosely bound to APIs, so most of the privileges can be identified by the APIs that the application calls. However, there are some privileges that are not coupled with the Tizen APIs. To allow easy identification, those privileges are mapped to corresponding system resources that are similar to other privileges.

The following table lists the non-API bound privileges:

Privilege Level Privacy Since(mobile/wearable) Description
http://tizen.org/privilege/internet public - 2.3 / 2.3.1 Most of the mobile and wearable devices use a cellular network for IP communication. However, the cellular network can cause data costs and an application that sends data through the Internet can be crucial for user privacy. Due to the importance of the functionality, a privilege for controlling application Internet access has been added.
The new privilege is coupled with IP addresses of the destination and source of the IP packets. If your socket is connecting or listening to any IP address except 127.0.0.1, this privilege is required to communicate properly. If your application does not have this privilege, the connection is blocked in the kernel layer and returns an error in the connect() function as the permission is denied. If you are listening to a socket, you never receive any packets from the outside without errors on the socket functions.
If you are using the listen() and connect() functions between the local loopback interface (127.0.0.1), you cannot connect to a random application (due to sandboxing) no matter how you add this privilege. However, you can connect between multiple processes of the same application binary.
http://tizen.org/privilege/mediastorage public Storage 2.3 / 2.3.1 When you connect the device to a computer (Windows® or macOS) through USB, you can access a dedicated media storage area shown as massive media storage. This region of the storage is called media storage and is usually used for multimedia files, such as photos, videos, and music files. Since this storage area is used for user private data, access to it must be protected with a privilege.
If your application does not have this privilege, no file operations into the media storage area succeed and you receive a permission denied error. If you have this privilege, you can read and write directories and files, create new files, and delete files in the storage area.
This privilege is treated as privacy privilege since platform version 4.0.
http://tizen.org/privilege/externalstorage public Storage 2.3 / 2.3.1 Similar to the media storage, many devices support external storages, such as MicroSD card or USB memory. As with the media storage, the access to an external storage must be protected with a privilege. You can find the absolute path of the external storage with the Storage API functions, such as storage_get_root_directory() function.
If your application does not have this privilege, all file operations fail with a permission denied error. If you have this privilege, you have full access to the external storage.
This privilege is treated as privacy privilege since platform version 4.0.
http://tizen.org/privilege/externalstorage.appdata public - 2.3 / 2.3.1 Many devices support external storages, such as MicroSD card or USB memory. As with the media storage, the access to an external storage must be protected with a privilege.
If your application does not have this privilege, no file operations with the application data stored in the external storage area succeed and you receive a permission denied error. If you have this privilege, you can store data in the application-specific directory of the external storage. You can find the path for storing data in the external storage with, for example, the app_get_external_data_path(), app_get_external_cache_path(), and app_get_external_shared_data_path() functions.
http://tizen.org/privilege/appdir.shareddata public - 3.0 / 3.0 Since Tizen 3.0, the application must have this privilege to support the shared/data directory.
The app_get_shared_data_path() and app_manager_get_shared_data_path() functions return an error when the application does not have this privilege. Note that the shared/data directory is writable for the application itself and readable for all other applications. You must be careful when you use this privilege and share data through the shared/data directory. For a more secure way of sharing files with another application, try to pass the file path through an application control.
