USB armory: Past, Present and Future

The availability of modern System on a Chip (SoC) parts, having low power consumption and high integration of most computer components in a single chip, empowers manufacturers in in creating secure embedded systems.

Inverse Path took this opportunity to introduce, in October 2014 at HITB KL, the USB armory, an open source hardware design implementing a USB flash drive sized computer for security applications.

Since its introduction the USB armory project enjoyed tremendous success, being supported with many contributions ranging from defensive tools such as the INTERLOCK encryption front-end to offensive techniques such as capturing Windows hashes on locked machines.

This talk will discuss the history of the USB armory, some of its most innovative uses, analyze the state of SoC security features and frameworks and finally laid down our direction for the its future.
