As technology advances, there are USB devices that may destroy your computer and even official enterprise USB devices infected with malware. With that in mind, have you ever felt uneasy about your system's security? That's the reason why USBGuard has been created, thus it can prevent any such attack. Furthermore it's being enhanced and maintained on a regular basis.
USBGuard is a software framework that protects your system against rogue USB devices (a.k.a. BadUSB) by implementing basic allowlisting and blocklisting capabilities. It's a great addition to anyone needing to protect a Linux system.

In this session you will be presented with a brief overview of USBGuard focusing on latest usability enhancements.
