All of this happens right at the moment a connection is made - before inappropriate power or data can be transferred.
It has taken a few years, but USB Type-C is finally becoming common on new computers, smartphones, and tablets.
Now, the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) - the big dog in the advancement of USB tech - has launched its USB Type-C Authentication Program, which will help mitigate these issues.
At the current time, participation in the authentication program is optional for OEMs. If you have a device that requires such accessories, it could simply refuse to recognize connections from uncertified cables.
This means that users can charge a device at a terminal, knowing that it is a certified charger.
Border patrol agents fire tear gas at group of migrants
However, several media outlets, including AP and Reuters , contradicted the version of events presented by the U.S. officials. A migrant can be seen in the video above picking up a canister and throwing it back into United States territory.
The USB Type-C Authentication Program lays the foundation for a new protocol by setting up guidelines that manufacturers can follow. First, it's possible to damage your devices with faulty cables. The whole USB Type-C plan was about using one connector to support all manner of protocols, from Thunderbolt 3 to Power Delivery, and letting OEMs figure out which ones they wanted to implement.
One way an attacker can compromise a system is by hacking a USB device and making modifications to the firmware or other hardware. They can implement a policy that will allow only verified storage devices to connect with the systems.
The USB-IF might have the best of intentions here, but the program could cause some headaches for consumers. The USB Type-C Authentication specification defines cryptographic-based authentication for USB Type-C chargers and devices.
To protect devices from damage through incompatible chargers and malware attacks, USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) - the organization that supports and promotes changes for USB standards - has introduced an authentication program for USB-C connections. We'll have to wait and see how restrictive the implementations are, but this certainly gives Apple an opening to make the next iPhone Type-C and force you to purchase its expensive first-party cables.
