A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11886626B2) discloses an innovative apparatus designed to detect and prevent unauthorized penetration or disassembly. The apparatus comprises a first substrate with traces to detect penetration, a second substrate with similar traces, and protected devices placed between them. A series of gaskets forming a perimeter around the protected devices are electrically connected to the substrates to detect any interruption in the electrical connection. An electrical connector encircles the protected devices, held in compression between the substrates, enhancing the security features of the apparatus.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for implementing this apparatus, involving the coupling of protected devices, gaskets, and an electrical connector between the substrates. The method includes the use of second devices to form a perimeter around the protected devices, inhibiting lateral penetration. The electrical connector, with alternating conductive and insulating sections, plays a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of the apparatus. The protected devices are programmed to monitor signals from the traces and gaskets to detect any potential penetration attacks, triggering the erasure of sensitive data stored within them. This patent showcases a sophisticated approach to safeguarding sensitive information and preventing unauthorized access through innovative design and technology.
