The Plausibly Deniable DataBase (PDDB): It’s Real Now!

via Hacking – bunnie's blog

Earlier I described the Plausibly Deniable DataBase (PDDB). It’s a filesystem (like FAT or ext4), combined with plausibly deniable full disk encryption (similar to LUKS or VeraCrypt) in a “batteries included” fashion. Plausible deniability aims to make it difficult to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that additional secrets exist on the disk, even in the face of forensic evidence.

Since then, I’ve implemented, deployed, and documented the PDDB. Perhaps of most interest for the general reader is the extensive documentation now available in the Xous Book. Here you can find discussions about the core data structures, key derivations, native & std APIs, testing, backups, and issues affecting security and deniability.

Hands-on with the Arduino CLI!

via Arduino Blog

In our last post, we told you that the Arduino CLI’s primary goal is to provide a flexible yet simple command line tool with all the features and ease of use that made Arduino a successful platform, and enable users to find new ways of improving their workflows. 

The Arduino CLI is not just a command line tool, but contains all you need to build applications around the Arduino ecosystem.

For example, you can:

  • Parse the JSON output of the CLI and easily integrate it into your custom application.
  • Run the CLI as an always-on service that accepts commands via a gRPC interface using your language of choice.
  • Use the CLI in your Go application as a library.

In the video below, we’ll focus on how to start using the Arduino CLI in a terminal session. The tutorial will walk you through setting up all the required tools on your machine to the fastest way to compile and upload a sketch on your target board to allow quick iterations in developing your project with Arduinos.
