Description: Keyboards are to transmit confidential data such as passwords. Containing electronic components, they eventually emit electromagnetic waves. These emanations could reveal sensitive information such as keystrokes. In a test of 12 different keyboard models bought between 2001 and 2008 (PS/2, USB, wireless and laptop). They are all vulnerable to at least 1 of the 4 attacks. Most modern computer keyboards generate compromising emanations. Thus, they are not safe to transmit confidential information.
