Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING ACCESS TO FILES BASED ON USER IDENTITY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE FOURNIR UN ACCÈS À DES FICHIERS SUR LA BASE DE L'IDENTITÉ DE L'UTILISATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A storage device provides a file system to a host based on the access rights of a user determined during authentication. If the authentication does not succeed, the storage device provides to the user a file system restricted to files authorized by public access rights. If the authentication does succeed, and the user is a device owner, the storage device provides to the user the native file system. If the authentication succeeds, and the user is not a device owner, the storage device provides a file system that is restricted to files that the given user is authorized to access. Due to the internal nature of the mechanism for safeguarding files, this security measure cannot be circumvented by simply connecting the storage device to another host that does not respect the permission rules of the file system.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de stockage fournissant un système de fichiers à un hôte sur la base des droits d'accès d'un utilisateur déterminés lors de l'authentification. Si l'authentification échoue, le dispositif de stockage fournit à l'utilisateur un système de fichiers limité aux fichiers protégés par des droits d'accès public. Si l'authentification réussit et que l'utilisateur est propriétaire du dispositif, le dispositif de stockage fournit à l'utilisateur le système de fichiers natif. Si l'authentification réussit et que l'utilisateur n'est pas propriétaire du dispositif, le dispositif de stockage fournit un système de fichiers qui est limité aux fichiers auxquels l'utilisateur donné a l'autorisation d'accéder. En raison de la nature interne du mécanisme de sauvegarde des fichiers, cette mesure de sécurité ne peut être contournée en connectant simplement le dispositif de stockage à un autre hôte qui ne respecte pas les règles d'autorisation du système de fichiers.
