USB Passthrough

What is usb passthrough?

USB passthrough in virtualization allows a virtual machine to directly access a USB device that is connected to the host machine. This feature allows a user to use USB devices inside a virtual machine, as if the device was connected directly to the virtual machine.

USB passthrough is particularly useful for virtual machines that require specialized USB devices, such as security dongles or USB-based storage devices. By using USB passthrough, the virtual machine can directly access these devices without any additional setup or configuration
