How to detect USB devices in Kali Linux?

To detect USB devices in Kali Linux, you can use the following steps:

  1. Open a terminal and enter the following command to list all the connected USB devices:
lsusb

This will list all the USB devices that are currently connected to your system, along with their vendor and device IDs.

  1. If you want to see more detailed information about a specific USB device, you can use the lsusb -v command, followed by the device ID of the device you want to inspect. For example:
lsusb -v -d 046d:c077

This will display detailed information about the device with vendor ID 046d and device ID c077.

  1. Another way to detect USB devices in Kali Linux is to use the udevadm command. This command allows you to view and manage the devices on your system, including USB devices. To see a list of all the USB devices that are currently connected to your system, you can use the following command:
udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=usb

This will list all the USB devices that are currently connected to your system, along with their device paths.

  1. If you want to see more detailed information about a specific USB device, you can use the udevadm info command, followed by the device path of the device you want to inspect. For example:
udevadm info --query=all --name=/dev/sdb

This will display detailed information about the USB device at /dev/sdb.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
