Onion just released a .dxf drawing for the Omega2S footprint, and a .pcb file presumably containing a footprint (but not in KiCAD format), see here.
Comparing the .dxf with my Omega2S footprint (which I designed for manual soldering), the pads are smaller and reach a bit more under the Omega2S. This requires extremely precise placement because of the very close proximity of the non-masked shield housing contacts to pins C24/B24. If the part is only a fraction of a mm shifted right or left, C24 or B24 gets shorted to GND (shorting C24/XTAL_FREQ_SEL is particularily interesting, because then the Omega starts up, but with a wrong frequency, so console has a weird baud rate, and everything else depending on timing does not work. That's how I learnt to pay attention to these pads...)
So I think the official footprint is probably ok for automatic placement, but mine is safer for hand-soldered prototypes.
I agree with your view with regard to the security of IoT. Although this blog I've come across (6 Reasons Why the IoT is the future of Industrial Organizations is only just an overview of IoT's future, it does tell a lot how we should be more concerned of how secure should we be when the time comes — since one does not need to get closer in order to do something harmful.
Yeah, having it in a simpler way would be more desirable sincere there are persons who aren't that much into technology. Anyway, thanks for initiating this thread. Got a lot of ideas from it!
