I purchased an Intel compute stick to turn a TV into a display.
I have it set up so that I can VNC into the computer to change what shows up (Open windows, show movies, etc...). It works great in this fashion, however my concern now is securing it.
It is currently plugged into the back of a TV. At this point anyone could plug in a USB mouse/cable and they would have control over it. I cannot lock the computer because I want the desktop to be the display (not a lock screen).
Some ideas I've had
Require admin password when plugging in a USB device
- I don't know if this is even possible. Google hasn't helped.
Physically box up the device
- I couldn't find anything on the market and the low profile nature of the device means a box would push the TV away from the wall.
Run it as a user with only the necessary privileges
- Maybe this is the best option?
What would be the best way to secure this computer?
