Yeah, i think i didn't explain it well. I thought it wasn't possible to do this
because i don't know of such a possibility with ssh or X.

A clear example would make it even more clear:

I have some netbooks where they have hardware login using pamusb, some with SD
cards and some with USB sticks. I was curious to know if there's a way to let
the host server to probe the guest devices (SD and USB) so that the
authentication can be possible.
AFAIK this is not possible, i was just asking for other opinions to know if
there's still a way for achieving this.

best regards
