    Default CRYORIG reveals Pi series power supplies

    CRYORIG Pi is the innovative proof of concept Power Supply Unit (PSU), which will be demoed during Computex, 2015. The CRYORIG Pi combines IoT capability with a PSU to create a brand new way of managing and controlling your PC. IoT or Internet of Things is a gaining momentum in home electrical appliances, allowing control and monitoring of everything electrical within the house hold. CRYORIG’s initial intention to add IoT capabilities into a PSU unit was to overcome the difficulties of configuring Wake on LAN, and Wake on WAN functions when trying to use remote desktop like applications. CRYORIG patent pending Zero Hassle Hardware Wake (ZHH Wake), directly controls the PSU and mainboard on/off signals, the IoT enable Pi PSU does not need any type of configuration other than pairing to an internet enabled WiFi signal. Wake up a remote PC to perform remote desktop functions. Remote wake your file sharing or distribution computing PC after a local power outage. Remote close your PC ahead of a thunder storm, or just simply check if you remembered to close your PC with sensitive material after leaving the home or office. The application of the IoT enabled Pi is almost limitless. From this base CRYORIG’s Pi line can extend further capabilities such as fan speed control, energy usage recording and management, electric bill estimations as well as PSU health and deterioration reporting all directly to a mobile phone app. The CRYORIG Pi line of Power Supply Units is targeted for release in 2016 with wattage ranging from 600 to +1000 Watts, and 80+ Gold to Platinum certifications.

    Pi 660/860/1000 Spec
    Wattage: 660/860/1000 Watts
    80+: Gold~Platinum
    Fan: QF120 600~2.200 PWM fan
    Size: TBA
    Release: Summer 2016
    Other: IoT Wake on Remote, Close on Remote Capable.

    They look like Seasonic XP2s with a remote operated switch (and a custom fan).

    Internet of things. Wat.

    And yes, it even reminds me of my Seasonic M12II-750 with that grille design

    Custom fan .. in a way that is Seasonic spec'd by cryorig to install cryorig's fan.

    Default Has anybody thought about the security implications of an IoT PSU?

    Has anyone thought about the security implications of an Internet of Things connected power supply unit? I just had some nasty thoughts about ransomware that would basically say that you need to pay some bitcoins by a deadline, or the hacked IoT PSU will either fry your motherboard with very high voltages or explode. Another more realistic scenario might be that the PSU gets hacked to become part of a botnet that sends spam. I don't want to have to deal with a hacked PSU or remember to update the PSU's firmware to close security holes.

    However, if Cryorig remembered to protect its firmware with a digital signature, then the firmware could be secured unless some advanced persistent threat stole Cryorig's private key and certificate. (The advanced persistent threat behind Duqu 2.0 that hacked Kaspersky stole Foxconn's private key and certificate according to this article Kaspersky wrote after analyzing the malware and thoroughly auditing its network. The private keys and certificates of Realtek and JMicron were stolen by the authors of Stuxnet according to this Ars Technica article.) The user would have to then secure the preferences in the PSU to stop hackers assuming that the required preferences for securing the PSU exist and those preferences work.

    If anyone tries to review this PSU correctly, the reviewer must either be a good penetration tester or be able to hire a penetration tester to attack this PSU, because nobody who is serious about using this PSU would want it to be hacked to do malicious things like being part of ransomware or a spam botnet.

    It doesn't look like anything more complex than a simple PSU with digital monitoring and capability to send ACPI-like signals to the motherboard. It looks like form over function for me, because your normal, everyday Wake on Lan isn't hard to set up at all, and was supported by all motherboards since over 10 years. Wake on Wan however requires some more work.
