Description

Install usbguard and configure the daemon and rules.

https://dkopecek.github.io/usbguard/

Usbguard is available for RHEL/CentOS >= 7.4 and Fedora.

Setup

What usbguard affects

  • the usbguard package
  • the usbguard-daemon.conf file
  • the rules file (by default /etc/usbguard/rules-managed-by-puppet.conf)

Beginning with usbguard

Just include ::usbguard to start without any rule - but it won't

Usage

Install, configure some rules and start the service:

include ::usbguard

$rule_content = @(CONTENT)
  allow with-interface equals { 08:*:* }
  reject with-interface all-of { 08:*:* 03:00:* }
  reject with-interface all-of { 08:*:* 03:01:* }
  reject with-interface all-of { 08:*:* e0:*:* }
  reject with-interface all-of { 08:*:* 02:*:* }
  | CONTENT

# DON'T DO THIS ON YOUR COMPUTER OR YOU MIGHT LOCK YOU OUT
# this is just an example. :-)
usbguard::rule { 'allow usb disks without keyboard interface':
  rule => $rule_content,
}

Limitations

  • The usbguard package for RHEL/CentOS is only available for 7.4 and later or you need to configure a external repo on your own (this module will never fiddle with your repo config)

Development

No defined process available. :-) Github pull-request style.
