Mac OS X Lion introduced a new nifty feature called AirDrop. This allows users on a local network to drag and drop files to each other with Finder.

While it seems that this would be useful, there are security implications. After looking through Google Search Results on the topic, I found some un-helpful information in a random forum post (unsurprising). A little more review of the search results resulted in finding the actual defaults(1) command to do so:

defaults write DisableAirDrop -bool YES

Naturally, I put this in a Chef recipe and applied it on all my Macs post haste:

  mac_os_x_userdefaults "Disable AirDrop" do
    domain ""
    key "DisableAirDrop"
    value true
    type "bool"

The resource above is available in my mac_os_x cookbook.
