Temper proof during transit


I am glad to see that the unit is going to be available worldwide. A question that comes to mind how am I certain that the device was not tempered with during transit and the key is it bundled with the unit?
Since the unit is geared for privacy I could not resist to ask.


Helm utilizes an eFuse which is set at the time of manufacturing. Attempts to compromise the firmware would disable the unit from booting due to the implementation of secure boot - during transit or afterward.

The USB key is wiped if the expected format is not presented to copy the recovery key to during the setup process.
