View Full Version : [ubuntu] Creating a locked-down appliance

August 4th, 2009, 07:10 PM
I need to create some appliances where users can only see and/or operate 1 particular program.

Basically, I want it so that a user boots up a laptop, authenticates into the local machine, and then is presented with one, and only one icon on their desktop. They cannot access any other menus, programs, or options, other than shutdown.

I really just need a secure and foolproof appliance that will run a CMS so users can enter data. I don't want them to be able to access anything else on the machine.

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be most appreciated.
