A search for this only brings up adapters to plug M.2 drives into a PCIE slot which is not what I want because I don't have a PCIE slot.

What I want is M.2 > M.2 (2x, 3x, etc). Does this exist?

Today we're ecstatic to publish our first demo showing a homemade BusKill Cable (in the prototype 3D-printed case) triggering a lockscreen.

In our last update, I showed a video demo where I successfully triggered a lockscreen using a BusKill prototype without the 3D-printed body for the case and N35 disc magnets. I realized that the N35 disc magnets were not strong enough. In this update, I show a demo with the prototype built inside a 3D-printed case and with (stronger) N42 and N52 cube magnets.

What is BusKill?

BusKill is a laptop kill-cord. It's a USB cable with a magnetic breakaway that you attach to your body and connect to your computer.

If the connection between you to your computer is severed, then your device will lock, shutdown, or shred its encryption keys -- thus keeping your encrypted data safe from thieves that steal your device.

Why?

While we do what we can to allow at-risk folks to purchase BusKill cables anonymously, there is always the risk of interdiction.

We don't consider hologram stickers or tamper-evident tape/crisps/glitter to be sufficient solutions to supply-chain security. Rather, the solution to these attacks is to build open-source, easily inspectable hardware whose integrity can be validated without damaging the device and without sophisticated technology.

Actually, the best way to confirm the integrity of your hardware is to build it yourself. Fortunately, BusKill doesn't have any circuit boards, microcontrollers, or silicon; it's trivial to print your own BusKill cable -- which is essentially a USB extension cable with a magnetic breakaway in the middle

Mitigating interdiction via 3D printing is one of many reasons that Melanie Allen has been diligently working on prototyping a 3D-printable BusKill cable this year. In this article, we hope to showcase her progress and provide you with some OpenSCAD and .stl files you can use to build your own version of the prototype, if you want to help us test and improve the design.

If you'd like to reproduce our experiment and print your own BusKill cable prototype, you can download the stl files and read our instructions here:

Iterate with us!

If you have access to a 3D Printer, you have basic EE experience, or you'd like to help us test our 3D printable BusKill prototype, please let us know. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and we're eager to finish-off this 3D printable BusKill prototype to help make this security-critical tool accessible to more people world-wide!

Hi,

I'm looking for a ~strong cabinet with some shelves where I could install some IT equipment mostly Single-board computer, DIY NAS

So it doesn't need to be tall , so I guess that ~40cm height would be enough.

Additionally it would have the following:

  • air vents
  • all sides panel in resistant metal (steel) ? (so no glass/plexi panel)
  • holes to fix it to the ground or wall
  • a hole to pass an electrical cord.
  • a hole to pass an Ethernet wire.

I found only one reference (for now) that look a like what I'm searching https://www.hartmann-tresore.fr/gamme-serveur-protect.html But this website lack of prices and pictures :/ and anyway I don't need such a height.

Any idea where to look at ? or what that kind of item might be named ?

Thanks.
