comment Do modern military crypto devices use thermite self destructs, and why would they need them?
@GrahamHill Military/intelligence devices. But only because they are the only customers for this kind of stuff.

revised Do modern military crypto devices use thermite self destructs, and why would they need them?
Overhauled question to include asking about the reason behind using thermite and to clearly specify I am talking about military cryptographic devices, not commercial ones like the referenced Question is asking about. Also included more notes and sources.

comment Have hardware trojans been seen in the wild?
So it seems all we have are claims by government officials that it has happened, but no unambiguous examples except possibly Crypto AG although even that isn't certain. The other examples mentioned were firmware backdoors. I was looking for IC level backdoors such as what the Trusted Integrated Circuit program is trying to prevent. But now that I think of it, attaching a hardware keylogger to a keyboard is an example of what I was looking for. I probably overlooked it because hardware trojans are a far out topic, but hardware keyloggers are everyday fare.
