Usb access through Django app

I have found some python libraries tha can access a usb drive and I have checked out the PyUsb app.

What I want to learn is if it is possible for a django-web-app to access a usb drive connected to a client pc.

Yes that is pretty much an impossibility. As think of the ramifications that would impose if we permitted websites to randomly access devices connected on our own machines, without any sort of request for said access or the user intentionally installing an application to let it happen.

I am actually refering to a web application with user login access.

Same thing applies. I guess you could try and go the route of Yubikey, but you would have to build a specific USB device for your clients to use

Iam actually refering to usb tokens for digital certificates/signatures. Also known as e-tokens .
