USB shielding

Hi,

If I am containing an arduino in a box that needs to be plugged into a computer via usb, and i want to put a female usb socket on the exteriotr panel of the box (so an end user can plug their own usb cable into the box, but not directly into the arduino in the box), do i need to shield the short lengths of cable between the arduino's usb socket and the socket on the box?

cheers

You can normally buy little short extension cables for USB

Have a google and see what you can find ;)
