CIRCLean aims to be used by someone receiving a USB key from an untrusted source who wants to see the content without opening the original and potentially malicious files. The code runs on a Raspberry Pi, which means it is never required to plug the original USB key into a computer.
Userful MultiSeat is a multiseat Linux desktop virtualization solution that enables a single computer to support up to 11 independent users at the same time, each with their own monitor, keyboard, and mouse by using USB multiseat devices, and virtualizing the X server. This approach offers the features of a full PC including high performance video and significantly reduces hardware costs, support and maintenance costs, electricity consumption, and e-waste as compared to stand alone PCs or thin clients. It installs on popular Linux distributions including Ubuntu and Edubuntu (operating system for schools). It supports 3D graphics, per-seat USB, 2-way audio, and all major USB multiseat devices, including the HP t100, t150 & t200, Acer Zero-Client Docking Station, Viewsonic VMA10, Atrust M200 & M202, GWC DU2600, and Displaylink devices, as well as video cards from Intel, ATI, and NVIDIA. Userful MultiSeat is available as both a standalone package for multi-seat enabling your Linux distribution of choice, and as a bundled install DVD for schools, which Includes Userful MultiSeat, Edubuntu operating system for education, and the ITALC classroom management tool. It was formerly called Userful Multiplier.
libusbx is a library which provides generic access to USB devices. As a library, it is meant to facilitate the development of applications which communicate with USB hardware. Its main features are portability (a single cross-platform API for Linux, OS X, Windows, and *BSD), user-mode (no special privileges required), and USB version-agnosticism (all versions of the protocol supported, including USB 3.0).
USB Network Gate (former USB to Ethernet Connector) easily connects one or more remote USB devices to your computer over Ethernet (Internet/LAN/WAN) as if the device was plugged into your own machine. It helps you share a USB device over Ethernet among multiple computers so people from all over the world (or your office) can use it. By intercepting the USB port activity of a shared USB device and redirecting it via TCP/IP,USB Network Gate lets you access your printer, scanner, Web cam, USB dongle, or any other supported USB device from your home PC or office laptop. Just plug the device in and it will automatically appear on the remote side of the connection. You can secure your USB data by enabling traffic encryption and access your USB devices remotely via WiFi.
Flashrom is a utility for reading, writing, erasing, and verifying flash ROM chips. It's often used to flash BIOS/coreboot/firmware/EFI images. It supports a wide range of DIP32, PLCC32, DIP8, SO8/SOIC8, and TSOP32/40/48 chips, which use various protocols such as LPC, FWH, parallel flash, or SPI. The tool can be used to flash BIOS/firmware images, for example, be it proprietary BIOS images or coreboot (previously known as LinuxBIOS) images. It can also be used to read the current existing BIOS/firmware from a flash chip.
Hanvon Tablet Linux Driver is a USB device driver for Linux kernels which primarily supports complete functionality of the Artmaster I tablets: pen coordinates, touch/float/click detection, pressure, x and y tilt, pen button, four simple tablet buttons (note that the first one works only together with pen activity), and the slider button. Some similar models are also supported by the driver.
ccid-utils is a USB smartcard driver and development platform. The driver follows a simple synchronous design that supports multiple slots but only one transaction at a time and includes a Python interface. It also includes a command line smartcard shell with a searchable history. The shell, written in Python, offers many useful features for developing with smart-cards and for reverse engineering APDU formats. It includes tools for reading data from GSM SIM cards and EMV credit/debit cards. The SIM tool is very basic, but allows reading SMS messages from the SIM. An example EMV (credit/debit) card tool is included that is boilerplate code for utilizing the EMV C API. There is also a Python interface for the EMV API. A graphical interface for reading EMV cards is provided.
acgtools is a driver for the ACG HF MultiISO RFID reader written entirely in Python and including several developer tools, including EEPROM backup/edit/restoration for enabling some of the more exotic features supported by this hardware. There are also sample applications, notably an e-Passport reader.
