Re: Locking down USB on Linux
From: Ralph Durkee <rd () rd1 net>

The CIS benchmarks <http://CISecurity.org> have included USB lockdown
for years for Linux, and are a good source of Linux security info, so
you may want to check the benchmark if they have one for your distro,
but since the current recommendation for Red Hat was changed is to
adding a nousb kernel flag, I would expect it to be distro independent.

Anyone have guidance on doing the same in Linux? I imagine there are
udev rules that can be set?
