What do you want to do?
Code:
lsusb
lists the attached USB devices;
Code:
usb-devices
gives more detailed information. Otherwise everything is done automatically, though you can unload the modules that make a USB device work, effectively turning it off, as far as the OS is concerned.

USB management is mainly used to control and monitor peripheral devices to prevent data theft and data loss. For example, you can create device whitelist, monitor or block the device, or remotely grant USB access...etc.
The command provides a mechanism to prohibit the use of usb devices, but on the other side, technical staffs have access to open it.
I want to find the product that provide the service that only those people who have permission to control the USB data.

There's no separate product. It's a standard part of the distro.

Also: is this you?

Thank you dugan for identifying the parallelism here.

Similar to a guideline for our site where we note that it is not helpful to create duplicate threads within the LQ site, it also is not too helpful to issue the same question on multiple Linux help sites.

I like how the moderator at the other forum put it:

G'day Elaine and welcome to linux.org

I note that you have the same question at linuxquestions.org HERE<link>, also placed today or so.

I wonder if you want to give them more time to respond, or to close that Thread there and take your chances here? Let us know, but it is difficult to field your questions when you may be getting and acting upon, different advice from elsewhere, and in effect can just waste the time of people here (and there) trying to help you.
Same in reverse.

Welcome to LQ, Elaine,

Please do note that issuing the same question, verbatim on multiple boards, while also providing an unclear question, is not really helpful.

Perhaps you can share a little bit more background about this question, or indicate why you feel there exists a product, without advertising some product. Please do note that in our LQ Rules (and forum guidelines) we do note that advertising is not allowed in threads, however we do have options for that, which is explained in that list of guidelines. Please check that out as well as the links in my signature intended to help you to know how to best use the LinuxQuestions.org site. These may help you to improve your question and also aid you with deciding which site question will garner you a more helpful response.

Best Regards.

It seems very much that you did not heed the information in my post which stated that your question is unclear and needs to be improved. You have rearranged and mostly repeated your exact original details with your reply, as opposed to making it more clear, or following the guidelines about how to ask clear questions and demonstrate the things you have tried up to this point.

Please also note that in your question on linux.org, there were a few suggestions to try, including a reference for USB device management, offered by that forum's moderator. According to your reply, it was too difficult for you to attempt reviewing that reference, so you chose to close your topic. Since that point, there are additional replies from other members.

If persisting with asking the same question differently, without showing any effort, then it is very unlikely that LQ members can provide you with any better assistance than the members over at linux.org.
