Keyboard Security


The $1399 funding option and above (librem 5) say that a keyboard and a mouse are included. This made me question the security of any keyboard, and if yours are checked for malicious software in it.

I may understand this wrong, (I’m not a tech guy) but if any hardware can have software in it, does this theoretically mean that a keyboard you buy can compromise your security by recording logs (key hits & patterns) and then send them over to a server?

Thank you
