This usb-device is a little computer(800MHz ARM® processor, 512MB RAM). I ordered it with a pre-installed Linux SD-Card. And finally they got enough money to produce and ship it.</p> <p>Here are some facts(from the website):</p> <ul> <li>Freescale i.MX53 ARM® Cortex™-A8 800Mhz, 512MB DDR3 RAM</li> <li>USB host powered (&lt;500 mA) device with compact form factor (65 x 19 x 6 mm)</li> <li>ARM® TrustZone®, secure boot + storage + RAM</li> <li>microSD card slot</li> <li>5-pin breakout header with GPIOs and UART</li> <li>customizable LED, including secure mode detection</li> <li>excellent native support (Android, Debian, Ubuntu, Arch Linux)</li> <li>USB device emulation (CDC Ethernet, mass storage, HID, etc.)</li> <li>Open Hardware &amp; Software</li> </ul> <p>The usb-armory can be used for example as a "password-manager", encrypted usb-storage, ssh-proxy, tor-proxy, pen-testing-tool, security token, and so on..</p> <h3>My first impressions:</h3> <p><img alt="" src="/sites/tech.feedyourhead.at/files/pictures/usbarmory.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As soon as I connected it with my Linux-Notebook I got a new network interface called "usb0". I just configured this interface on my Linux-Notebook and set the IP-Address to 10.0.0.100. The pre-installed Linux-Image on my USBArmory has 10.0.0.1:</p> <pre> <code> dr@tardis:/# ifconfig usb0 10.0.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 dr@tardis:/# ping 10.0.0.1 PING 10.0.0.1 (10.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 10.0.0.1: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.297 ms 64 bytes from 10.0.0.1: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.259 ms 64 bytes from 10.0.0.1: icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.234 ms 64 bytes from 10.0.0.1: icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=0.190 ms 64 bytes from 10.0.0.1: icmp_req=5 ttl=64 time=0.241 ms ^C --- 10.0.0.1 ping statistics --- 5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4000ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.190/0.244/0.297/0.036 ms </code></pre> <p>Now I can connect via SSH. But it's not the only way to gain a shell. There is a Webshell listening on port 4200. So&nbsp; I can use a Browser to connect to&nbsp;"https://10.0.0.1:4200/" and open a shell. This is very useful, because maybe I use this device on foreign computers and there might not be a ssh-client but a web-browser.</p> <h2>USB-Host-Adapter</h2> <p>I also ordered a USB-Host-Adapter. This device transforms the USB-Armory into a standalone computer powered by a micro-USB-Cable and provides a USB-Port for Wifi, USB-keyboard or anything else.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://camo.githubusercontent.com/b865a98de6f8f714f252e54c301c646acde3035d/687474703a2f2f696e7665727365706174682e636f6d2f696d616765732f75736261726d6f72795f686f73745f616461707465722e6a7067" style="width: 800px; height: 480px;" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>All in all I am super happy with my new toy and I am going to play with it. It's a powerful device and I can imagine that I am going to have a lot of fun with it.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Some useful links:</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://github.com/inversepath/usbarmory/wiki/Starting">https://github.com/inversepath/usbarmory/wiki/Starting</a></li> <li>https://www.crowdsupply.com/inverse-path/usb-armory-open-source-usb-stick-computer</li> <li>http://dev.inversepath.com/download/usbarmory/</li> </ul> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/hoti" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Hoti</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Apr 10 2015</span> <div class="field field--name-field-tagies field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags</div> <div class='field__items'> <div class="field__item"><i class="fa fa-tags"></i> <a href="/Linux" hreflang="en">Linux</a></div> <div class="field__item"><i class="fa fa-tags"></i> <a href="/tags/sysadmin" hreflang="en">Sysadmin</a></div> <div class="field__item"><i class="fa fa-tags"></i> <a href="/tags/usbarmory" hreflang="en">usbarmory</a></div> </div> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment-node-blog field--type-comment field--label-hidden comment-wrapper"> </section> <section class="field field--name-comment field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> <h2 class='title comment-form__title'> <i class="fa fa-comments-o"></i> Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=74&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="k2nAa9zPaZJ1YXSx-274dYF8rYf7l1SyAeJZIsk5bGc"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:14:05 +0000 Hoti 74 at https://tech.feedyourhead.at
