Sanitize Your USB Flash Drives With CIRCLean And Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
CIRClean sanitizes USB keys using Raspberry Pi via h4ckr
Malware regularly use USB sticks to infect victims and the abuse of USB sticks is a common vector of infection (as an example Lost USB keys have 66% chance of malware).
CIRCLean is a independent hardware solution to clean documents from untrusted (obtained) USB keys / USB sticks. The device converts automatically untrusted documents into a readable format and stores these clean files on a trusted (user owned) USB key/stick.
The code runs on a Raspberry Pi (a small hardware device), which also means it is not required to plug or open the original USB key on a computer. CIRCLean can be seen as kind of air gap between the untrusted USB key and your operational computer.
CIRCLean does not require any technical prerequisites of any kind and can be used by anyone. CIRCLean is free software which can be audited and analyzed by third-parties. We also invite any organizations to actively reuse CIRCLean in their own products or contribute to the project.
CIRCLean is designed to be used by everyone and the following visual shows how to use in 8 easy steps.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
