Raspberry Pi Network Access Storage #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Prevent your network safe from attacks by analyzing data. via dark matters
A little Raspberry Pi Network Access Storage (NAS) will provide you with the evidence you need to track down or even prevent an attack through data analysis.
Take a Raspberry Pi and turn it into a NAS with any of the four USB ports the microcomputer offers, plus the Ethernet connection. You can easily plug in a powered USB hub and add an array of harddrives for a couple hundred bucks, with the drives being the most expensive part of this file server. Store your flow data on these drives separate from the rest of the network. You can even call the NAS something fun like “Malware Cache” or “Inventory Logs 1991-2008”. Nobody will bother to look at either of those locations. Remember though, to ensure its authenticity in a court of law you need to encrypt this information and run a MD5 hash.
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!

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.
