    Disclosed is a device for security guarded cradle device for mobile terminal. The mobile terminal
can access easily to a host network via the cradle. The standard cradle is a kind of connector.
Therefore, if a password in the mobile terminal was hacked, the cradle becomes an open terminal
connector without security guard. For special purpose of mobile terminal, the security is important.

To guard the secure information, the cradle can check the identification of mobile terminal. The
