(EN) RULE-BASED ASSIGNMENT OF CONTROL OF PERIPHERALS OF A COMPUTING DEVICE

Abstract
(EN) Described herein are various techniques and principles for determining how to assign control of peripherals and assigning control of peripherals. In some embodiments, determining how to assign control of peripherals comprises reviewing connections of peripherals to the computing device and evaluating rules to determine management points in the connections. In some cases, the connections of peripherals to the computing device may be organized into a hierarchy corresponding to a hierarchy of physical connections of the peripherals, including physical connections of peripherals located remote from the computing device and possibly connected through another computing device. When management points are identified among the connections, control of peripherals associated with the management points may be assigned in the same way. For example, access rights to each of the peripherals may be assigned to a same user session.
(FR) L'invention porte sur diverses techniques et divers principes permettant de déterminer comment attribuer la commande de périphériques et d'attribuer la commande de périphériques. Dans certains modes de réalisation, la détermination de comment attribuer la commande de périphériques consiste à examiner des connexions de périphériques au dispositif informatique et à évaluer des règles pour déterminer des points de gestion dans les connexions. Dans certains cas, les connexions de périphériques au dispositif informatique peuvent être organisées en une hiérarchie correspondant à une hiérarchie de connexions physiques des périphériques, comprenant des connexions physiques de périphériques situés à distance du dispositif informatique et possiblement connectés par l'intermédiaire d'un autre dispositif informatique. Lorsque des points de gestion sont identifiés parmi les connexions, la commande de périphériques associés aux points de gestion peut être attribuée de la même manière. Par exemple, des droits d'accès à chacun des périphériques peuvent être attribués à une même session d'utilisateur.
