i’m using usbguard to improve the physical security of my laptop. this has worked well with all of my past laptops but i’m running into some issues which may be specific to the framework’s modular port architecture.
previously, this was only affecting my external soundcard. however, after a reinstall of debian bullseye following a hard drive failure, the problem is affecting my entire monitor/dock interface. this means none of my connected devices are being authorized (including my keyboard). i didn’t make any change to the arrangement of my physical ports.
systemctl restart usbguard fixes the problem immediately, but this is a tedious thing to do since the laptop is docked 99% of the time in a location that is not very convenient to reach and type on.
i’ve submitted more detail about this problem upstream to the usbguard project at device not properly authorized after docked suspend/resume · Issue #543 · USBGuard/usbguard · GitHub
any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
