This is a quite OS-specific question and hardly needs any special Puppet treatment. U just use e.g. `exec` resources or (configuration) `file` resources as you usually do. May I ask anyway, what's this good for? Maybe u just have some “wrong” intention, an illusive perception of how things're goin'.

Hi, Thank you for your comment. there is no wrong intention, actually we are implementing this tool in our origination and we want to clarify that user should not able to use USB.

We simply put hot glue in public accessible clients, ensure you can't access the sockets panel without breaking the chassis (kensington lock), and that's that. A software approach could be bypassed. Starting at the BIOS level.

No we cannot do like you said, we have to Block USB writes access by using Puppet only.

Still, it's a very OS-specific issue, you better head for forums/platforms dedicated to your OS .
