There are two lights (LEDs) marked as Genuine (green) and Caution (red). These lights are directly connected to the COLDCARD's Secure Element. Their purpose is to indicate the flash contents have not changed since your last use of the COLDCARD.
When you power up the COLDCARD, you should see a
Verifying... screen and then the
green (genuine) LED will light. This means the flash memory has the correct contents.
There is no way for trojan software to change this light to green without your PIN.
Obviously, the COLDCARD from the factory will have a green light, and after each firmware upgrade, we update the checksum that is performed so the light will be green again. The only time you should see a red light is during a firmware upgrade process (the first time you enter the PIN after the upgrade), and briefly during power-up sequence when the verification is on-going.
For more technical background on this security feature please have a look at this whitepaper.
The Mark 2 (Mk2) version of the COLDCARD has only one major change: the touch buttons are replaced by real keys that give a good click!
