      The host_uuid_source default is 'smbios'. If 'dmidecode' does not provide
      a valid UUID a temporary UUID will be generated.

      Another option is to specify host UUID in host_uuid.

      Keep the format of the example UUID below. UUID must not have all digits
      be the same.

      NB This default all-zeros UUID will not work. Replace
      it with the output of the 'uuidgen' command and then
      uncomment this entry

      This allows libvirtd to detect broken client connections or even
      dead clients.  A keepalive message is sent to a client after
      keepalive_interval seconds of inactivity to check if the client is
      still responding; keepalive_count is a maximum number of keepalive
      messages that are allowed to be sent to the client without getting
      any response before the connection is considered broken.  In other
      words, the connection is automatically closed approximately after
      keepalive_interval * (keepalive_count + 1) seconds since the last
      message received from the client.  If keepalive_interval is set to
      -1, libvirtd will never send keepalive requests; however clients
      can still send them and the daemon will send responses.  When
      keepalive_count is set to 0, connections will be automatically
      closed after keepalive_interval seconds of inactivity without
      sending any keepalive messages.

      - none: do not perform auth checks. If you can connect to the
              socket you are allowed. This is suitable if there are
              restrictions on connecting to the socket (eg, UNIX
              socket permissions), or if there is a lower layer in
              the network providing auth (eg, TLS/x509 certificates)

      - sasl: use SASL infrastructure. The actual auth scheme is then
              controlled from /etc/sasl2/libvirt.conf. For the TCP
              socket only GSSAPI & DIGEST-MD5 mechanisms will be used.
              For non-TCP or TLS sockets, any scheme is allowed.

      - polkit: use PolicyKit to authenticate. This is only suitable
                for use on the UNIX sockets. The default policy will
                require a user to supply their own password to gain
                full read/write access (aka sudo like), while anyone
                is allowed read/only access.
