Today monitors in a shared space such as an e‐café can be easily hijacked when a user does something as simple as
getting up to go to the bathroom. There is little that a user could do today to protect their gaming station since they are
using an unowned computing system. However, their account logins can be vulnerable when not in use. Our method
would allow the user to lock the display and all peripheral devices connected to the display by using a USB key that can
be read by the display’s USB hub.
