Abstract

There is a growing demand for enclosures that can provide both ventilation for thermal require- ments and physical security to protect proprietary equipment and encryption devices from unwanted probing or tampering. One major problem with this demand is that the vent openings in the enclosure must be restrictive enough to prevent unwanted entry, but still allow adequate air flow in and out of the enclosure for cooling.
