Genuinely "Trusted Computing:" Free and Open Hardware Security Modules

Presented at ShmooCon X (2014), Jan. 18, 2014, 10 a.m. (60 minutes)

"Trusted Computing" unfortunately often means trusting a black box provided by a third party who may not be particularly trustworthy. We present an alternative -- a user assembled hardware security module, based on a published design, using simple components which can be fully inspected by the user prior to assembly and commissioning.
