Default Bolt ID

Hi there
On a 2006 3500 cummins- trying to clean/clear an oil filter screen device located by the valve cover on the motor. The bolts are star type with a nipple in the center that requires a special tool to remove. Does anyone know what these screws are called and what size/tool is needed to remove them? I realize they must be designed that way to make it a dealer required repair but would like to be able to remove them myself.
thanks

Tamper proof torx? You can buy them at pretty much any tool/auto store.

Thanks Phildo
Checked all the parts stores here in my area of Colorado and none carried them. I finally searched and found them on the internet. What sets them apart from the other torx security bolts is these are a 5 point and they are usually a six point. I am guessing that the problem may be this is considered part of the emissions system so Dodge wanted us to have to go to a dealer to get this type of work done. The internet has got to be one of the best inventions of all time, especially for us old folks.
