Abstract

Protecting the access to USB ports has the same priority for information security than firewalls and antivirus software. Nowadays there are some tools that allow us to monitor and regulate the access to USB devices, but all of them are distributed under proprietary licenses. This work presents an application that solves the mentioned problem: ?’How controlling the access to USB mass storage devices in GNU/Linux Operating Systems?
