Can udev be used (udev rules) to whitelist certain usb devices?
What I mean is that only devices in a list I create (containing device IDs that I can obtain with lsusb) will be passed on / processed by udev. Those not in my list should be ignored by udev as soon as possible (without even notifying the driver for the device).
I've heard about "udev rules". If you know something about how udev rules work, do you think it is possible to use them for my purposes?
You may be wondering why I want this. This is for security purposes. See more details here about such vulnerabilities: http://www.charlescurley.com/blog/archives/2011/03/13/linux_usb_vulnerability/index.html
