007 USB Virtual Machine

Status

Proposed

Context

Certain VMs will need access to specific USB devices, but with passthrough from the host we can only pass through whole USB controllers, not individual devices.

Decision

USB controllers will be passed through to a VM with authorization controls inside the VMs to forward a specific USB device using USBIP.

Consequences

We need to modify the upstream USBIP daemon to support authorization.
