Firewall squeezed onto USB key

Posted on Sunday, June 03 2007 @ 20:15:17 CEST by


An Israeli firm created a fully functioning hardware firewall into a USB key sized form factor:
The "Yoggie Pico" runs Linux 2.6 along with 13 security applications on a 520MHz PXA270, a powerful Intel processor popular in smartphones and other high-end consumer devices.

The Yoggie Pico is a spectacularly miniaturized version of the company's original Yoggie Gatekeeper product (pictured at left), which shipped nine months ago and is also based on the Intel PXA270 processor. Both products aim to offload firewall functions to a separate device, in order to increase security and performance of the host PC, and save users from confusing security-related pop-up messages.
Check it out at Linux Devices.
