Familiar with the concept of hardware keylogging? A hardware keylogger is a perfect solution for monitoring user activity, at very low risk of disclosure. A hardware keylogger is a purely electronic device, so no access to the operating system is required, no traces are left, and software has no possibility of detecting such a device. However, the hardware keylogger concept inherits one weakness: physical access to the keylogger is required for retrieving captured data. This problem has finally found it’s solution: a Wireless Keylogger.

KeeLog has already released one open source PS/2 hardware keylogger design to the public. Now, we are doing it again with the DIY Wireless Keylogger. This design is fully free for private and commercial use…

Next project, how to make a wireless keyboard jammer :)

    It would be scary if somebody could fit all this into a USB pen drive. Especially if you also have some type of storage in the pen drive shell.

    Employee: Here is my project boss.
    Boss plugs into computer to download the project.
    Employee sits in office monitoring boss’s activity.

      Even better to fit it to USB hub or a card reader, etc, pen drives stay less time connected. In a usb hub you would also have more space…

    The device pictured here is just the wireless receiver used to retrieve the data from the keylogger. The keylogger isn’t wireless with respect to the targeted keyboard. It is still necessary to have the keylogger attached between the keyboard and computer.

    $10 for a 32bit ARM7 processor and need to install a driver “Usb to serial converter” : this is not cheap and not stealth. very bad keylogger imo.
