Keeping Your Garage Secure Using a Raspberry Pi

It is always unfortunate when the garage door is left open when you leave for an extended period of time. This has happened to me a couple of times. By leaving the garage door open, I was inviting unwanted guests into the garage. An unwanted guest can be animals looking for a meal and spreading trash all over. It could also be another person that sees an ope

Keeping the Raspberry Pi 3 clock up to date

The Raspberry Pi 3 is an excellent piece of hardware. With 4 ARM A53 cores, 1Gb RAM and integrated 802.11bgn wifi, at only $35, they’re giving them away! One of the biggest pain points when using the Pi for data acquisition is a lack of a battery backed clock. Each time the Pi boots up, it reverts to it’s manufacture date. Sure, with a working ne

Sweet Security: Deploying a Defensive Raspberry PI

The hardware used in both the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have many similarities. Both often involve older systems incapable of running detection tools or monitoring agents due to outdated operating systems, resource limitations, proprietary systems, and odd protocols such as Modbus and DNP3, amongst other restrictions.
