All my workstation boards also have two controllers. one for the two usb ports next to the ps/2. I've always assumed for mouse and keyboard. But I consider my sys-usb unsafe. And even if you use a separate vm for mouse and kb its still proxying and still used for the most sensitive tasks. I use a mouse proxy from sys-usb, only after following Mareks advice of having screenlock come on in a min or two so attacker doesn't have time to do anything. But I would never risk using a kb like that. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
