Cryptoprocessor

By connecting PiSec Shield to your Raspberry Pi, you are boosting your device with an Egeon Technology's Cryptoproccessor with the following powerful features:

  • Reliable and Secure Platform
  • True Random Number Generator
  • Certification Authority (CA).
  • Data is encrypted inside the processor (hardware).
  • The keys never get out of the chip. This reinforces security and makes external attacks very difficult.
  • You can set up groups of authorised PiSecs. This way, only those PiSecs can decrypt the files.
  • PiSec uses Elliptic Curve Cryptography. It reduces the processor load and speeds up the key verification process.
  • PiSec uses AES 256 – XTS
  • Once connected, PiSec is automatically detected with a single command.
  • Verification and sign process with X.509 certificates.
  • X.509 certificates generator.
  • Key verification process with Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC).
  • Encrypted and secure storage, both within USB devices and PiSec's SD card.
  • After a predefined failed access trials, PiSec automatically get blocked to prevents force brute and DOS attacks.
  • After a predefined idle time, PiSec's encrypted file system is unmounted automatically.
