« usbkill » is an anti-forensic kill-switch that waits for a change on your USB ports and then immediately shuts down your computer.
sudo python usbkill.py
sudo python3 usbkill.py
Related project; same idea, but implemented as a Linux driver: https://github.com/NateBrune/silk-guardian
Some reasons to use this tool:
[!] Important: Make sure to use disk encryption for all folders that contain information you want to be private. Otherwise they will get it anyway. Full disk encryption is the easiest and surest option if available
Tip: Additionally, you may use a cord to attach a USB key to your wrist. Then insert the key into your computer and start usbkill. If they steal your computer, the USB will be removed and the computer shuts down immediately.
sudo apt-get install secure-delete
