The developers of the PiSec Raspberry Pi security shield explain a little more about its inspiration, features and design.
PiSec offers, right out of the box, all you need to secure your Raspberry Pi, from the Ethernet connection to the SD Card.. You can use your RBPi to collect, store, and transfer data, but these bytes are always handled in clear text. There are several scenarios where you can use this small & powerful computer:
– Standalone PC as a storage system.
– Standalone PC as a data logger.
– Standalone PC with licensed software.
– Embedded device to control complex machines/systems. Standalone server.
– Very powerful and flexible, indeed! But …
What happens if someone steals your NAS disks, your SD card, or your USB drive? What happens if someone sniffs the sensors’ or actuators’ communication lines and steals your telemetry? Can you afford to expose your data? Or …
Worst-case scenario: since RBPi is easily available, all your products can be replicated by your competitor. Even worse: what if a system mimics one of your authorized machines? (Man in the Middle attack).… Can you afford to lose your business?
