Re: Faraday room - great name
Nearly as cool as Tesla...
The EU’s new European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) will be inaugurated at Europol in The Hague later today. The facility will act as the "focal point" in the EU’s fight against cybercrime, against both businesses and private citizens. The centre is designed to provide greater international co-ordination in the fight against online …

shouldn't the Faraday room have a double-door entry to prevent EM leakage when entering/exiting?
if the door has radio frequency finger stock (wiping/grounding copper beryllium fingers) on all 4 closed sides then the attenuation *might* start to be enough. Double 'grounded doors' would, as you say, be better. I presume they additionally use <a href="http://goo.gl/KZ5Sd">Ramsey</a> systems like these inside the room. (link is to ham radio shop that I used 10 years ago)
I wonder how long it will take before they get hacked.....
A faraday cage for seized equipment? Is that really necessary or is it just a regular cage as found in most police departments that someone said "hey, that's a faraday cage!"
Regarding being hacked: my guess is day 1, from the inside by another countries intelligence service. Although it'll be years before they know it and the public never will.
Probably just means using standard foil-backed plasterboard on metal stud with metallized reflective windows. Used to be quite common before users started complaining about lack of mobile phone reception.
Yeah Mr White, yeah Science!
By the time they've completed all the paperwork in order to get the seized kit to the room the crims will already have remotely bricked the stuff.
Never heard of a Faraday Bag?
The one with the mesh-lined pockets, please.
that was my first thought, most of the stuff they get will have been seized somewhere else, processed, then spend several days being trasnported before it arrives there, and i bet it won't be put in a faraday cage until it gets there.
do you have to wear a tinfoil hat in the Faraday room?
Couldn't they just take the batteries out of the devices?
Uhm, if you use a GSM modem for communications it's easy to find out if you are in a faraday cage and even if you are being transported. If you use some other form of radio, you can still probably estimate the RF power in cellular bands to wipe yourself when something is fishy.
Sure it's a nice thing to have, but it probably won't solve that particular problem.
Put as many hackers and pirates in prison as you can, as fast as you can because they seem to multiply like rats, maybe because they are?
By "Faraday Room" I assume you mean an oak paneled lounge named for the Great Man where bewhiskered gentlemen of science make take their ease with a glass of brandy before a roaring fire, free of the distractions of the world and the shrill interruptions of women.
