I have an unusual request, not about the nitroproduct I’m interrested in (nitroPC) but an accessory I 'll have to get with it, the screen.
I have a problem taxing something as trusted hardware, especially since I became aware that this was an issue: https://theintercept.com/2019/01/24/computer-supply-chain-attacks/ and other related hardware tempering. I have no idea how to provide myself with trusted hardware because none of the companies I checked seem to care, let alone prevent hardware from being compromised. Does not help I’m not familiar with the technology, so I do not know of the possibilities or their dificulty of implementation, I know that bugged cables were an issue and this seems possible: ‘‘in theory the monitor can take data from the video signal and send it to an external attacker’’ (support told me this in an attempt to help before redirecting me here, but apparently it would be an attack that would be difficult to carry out).
I Would tend to think software attacks aren’t an issue since it’s a screen and a way for power to get to the screen, but been unfamiliar with the technology, I cannot exclude it.
Would this be safe? HD MI Mini LCD Controller Board+14" B140HAN01 1920x1080 EDP IPS LCD Screen 601285622606 | eBay (or look for: HD MI Mini LCD Controller Board+14" B140HAN01 1920x1080 EDP IPS LCD Screen on ebay) if I’m wright and software isn’t an issue?
Does anyone have a way to have a certified spyware free portable monitor? (It has to be portable since I’m bound to travel)
I am aware this is out of subject, but I’m gratefull for all the help I can get since the safest sollution I found, so far was to diy a monitor, and possibly the cable. It’s not a possibility for me at this point. If there is nothing one can safely assume spyware free, is it at least outside the realm of possibles to inject malware to a monitor and make it attack the nitroPC?
