How to secure your Raspberry Pi board [Tutorial]

There is a great Raspberry Pi tutorial where you will learn to secure your Raspberry Pi. You will also learn to implement and enable the security features to make the Pi secure. This article is an excerpt from the book, Internet of Things with Raspberry Pi 3, written by Maneesh Rao. I give credit where it is due and this is what I wanted to share with all of you. Worth the time to read.

The Pimoroni Inky pHAT

This tutorial will show you how to install the Pimoroni  Inky pHAT Python library, and then walk through its functionality. You’ll learn how to run the a few of the included examples: the calendar and the name badge. For the complete tutorial you can go the the Pimoroni website:

First thing I did on my Raspberry Pi Zero WH was open a new terminal window and update the software to tun the Pimoroni  Inky pHAT:

sudo pip install –upgrade inkyphat

Inky-pHAT3

Then I made sure my version of Raspbian was up to date with this command:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Inky-pHAT4

Then I the following command to setup the Inky pHAT:

curl https://get.pimoroni.com/inkyphat | bash

Once that’s done reboot your Pi to let the changes propagate.

After the reboot open up a terminal window and navigate to:

cd /home/pi/Pimoroni/inkyphat/examples

Once there you can then type “ls” to see the examples in that directory. I did the calendar:

python cal.py

Then:

python hello.py “Single-Board.com”

Final thoughts:

I am very happy with the completion of this project. It seems that all the soldering I did on the header works as intended. I will update more as I intend to use this Inky pHAT in all of my future projects. I will definitely be adding my logo on there!

What is next weeks project?
