I encountered the MNT Reform earlier this year. I’m looking for a secure enclave: a laptop where I can store all my data and passwords and encrypted files safely.
Correct me if I’m wrong, I hear that the MNT Reform 2.0 is nearly completely free software, with a couple of minor binary blobs (What are they?) Because the hardware
is ARM-based, it doesn’t have Intel’s ME or AMD’s PSP. (Are there any known backdoors?) It’s also much cheaper than most competing products, like the Raptor Blackbird.
I’ve also read that there are hardware upgrades being proposed.
The only problem is that it isn’t available in the shop. And there are no posted plans anywhere on when they’ll be sold again.
I need a new secure enclave soon. Does anyone know when the next batch of MNT Reforms are shipping?
If it isn’t going to ship soon, can you guys recommend an alternative? Older Intel laptops (RYF-type stuff) are too old and probably have hardware level
vulnerabilities like Spectre. The Raptor Blackbird isn’t portable and costs US $3,000.
