(In reply to chrys87 from comment #0)
I will fix it sligthly different way than debian, but the upstream recommended way, in the brlapi package:

- added group brlapi, if not exists
- if there is no key on the system, the key is generated by mcookie and moved to the brlapi group, others don't have access to the key

You will need to add users which would have access to the brlapi group.
