A storage media area is also preferably provided. The storage media is preferably divided into a secure and nonsecure area by arranging secure usb the storage media into multiple Logical Units (LUNs). The nonsecure area is preferably accessed in a conventional manner using a host USB MSC driver through the USB MSC interface on the storage device. A password dialog application can be located in the nonsecure area of the storage device.

There’s also my old strategy of offloading each secure usb I/ device onto a separate chip which has a safe interface to the main chip. That preserves COTS hardware compatibility, while allowing you to choose what chips to put trust in for mediation.usb security camera
