USB Wrapper project
This entry was posted in open source and tagged open source hardware, USB.
Have you ever wanted to charge your smartphone by using your computer, but you didn’t want all of your sync software to load? Maybe you want to use a friend’s computer but you don’t really want Windows to start trying to install drivers and for your device to open in USB transfer mode. Or maybe the power source is simply untrusted and you want to avoid a potential attack.
Inspired by the USB Condom, the USB Wrapper helps with the above by severing the USB data lines and only allowing the power lines to connect through. This ensures that no data information can be transfered between the power source and your device. This helps against known attacks such as juice jacking
