Description Nitrokey (former Crypto Stick) is an USB key with integrated smart card

to enable highly secure encryption of e-mails and data, for authentication in networks and for access control. Other than ordinary software solutions, the secret keys are always stored securely inside the Nitrokey device. Their extraction is impossible and thus Nitrokey is immune to computer viruses and Trojan horses. The user-chosen PIN and the tamper-proof design protect in case of loss and theft. The hardware and software are both available as Open Source to allow verifying the security and integrating with own applications. Among the use cases are e-mail disk and file encryption, secure login to websites, mobile encrypted storage with hidden volumes.
