So i have recently been concerned with online security with the number of password dumps that have been surfacing so i started investigating hardware based password tools.
I know there are many apps that can do the job on my phone, but im less comfortable leaving every password i own in the hands of an external company than i am with my bad attempts as password usage.
There are already a number of devices available which do this job, so why re-invent the wheel? Well i wanted to make something that was cheap and open. People could create there own encryption and obscurity methods making the device as secure as you wanted. Also I wanted to make something super tiny and easy to use (if its easy to use, its more likely to be used)
Starting with a base of an atmega32u4 for ease of keyboard spoofing, a basic screen and some buttons, lets see where this can go....
So a project is hard to test if it doesnt exsist!! So i knocked up a quick board to test how it all works. Its simply an atmega32u4, 24lc512 i2c flash, and a sexy little IPS screen i have been trying to find a use for. I tried to keep it all as compact as possible so it could easily fit on a keyring
Once the boards land i will see if they work, then i will share once its been proven to work :)
