s53

s53 is a software client and hardware device combination designed to provide reasonable doubt as to whether one still has decryption keys for the computer to which the device is attached.

It does this by destroying or changing the keys of all encrypted disks on a protected computer if the device is removed, a panic button is triggered or X,Y,Z movement is detected.

This is a test of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 Section 53 Paragraph 3 defence

Directory Structure

Client

GoLang source and bash scripts for running on the computer with LUKS / BSD crypto RAID protected partitions.

Device

Ardunio sketch for use with an Freetronics LeoStick (although any arduino will work) and an ADXL337 chip to detect motion, receive wireless signals from panic buttons or other s53 devices (if enabled) and communicate with the client software (heartbeats etc)

3D

Various 3D printer files for housing elements of the s53 hardware
