USB Stick, unlock Fedora station automatically?

Something like this:

It automatically locks your workstation when the usb key is removed, and re-activates it when it is plugged back in.

Any thing like this for Fedora?

You can do the same with PAM. Have a look at this site, it explains every step and although it's for Debian based systems it should work on Fedora also. I have it set up on multiple distros and works like a charm.

Kind regards,
