Title (EN) DOCKING COMPUTING DEVICES TO A DOCKING STATION
(FR) ACCUEIL DE DISPOSITIFS INFORMATIQUES SUR UNE STATION D'ACCUEIL
Abstract:
(EN) Examples disclosed herein provide the ability for a docking station to authorize a user to utilize the docking station. In one example method, the docking station determines whether a computing device is docked to the docking station and, upon determining the computing device is docked to the docking station, the docking station determines whether a user associated with the computing device is an authorized user of the docking station. As an example, if the user is an authorized user of the docking station, the docking station enables ports of the docking station for access by the computing device.
(FR) Des exemples de la présente invention concernent la capacité d'une station d'accueil à autoriser un utilisateur à s'en servir. Dans un exemple de procédé, la station d'accueil détermine si un dispositif informatique est accueilli sur la station d'accueil et, le cas échéant, elle détermine si un utilisateur associé au dispositif informatique est un utilisateur autorisé de la station d'accueil. Si tel est le cas, la station d'accueil autorise par exemple des ports de la station d'accueil à accéder au dispositif informatique.
