    We are excited to announce the long awaited Nitrokey HSM 2. Finally it supports highly secure cryptography with RSA-4096, ECC-521, AES-256, and SHA-512. Supported elliptic curves are: SECG / NIST P-192, P-256, P-521; Bitcoin Koblitz curve secp192k1, secp256k1, secp521k1; Brainpool 192-512. The storage capacity has been increased significantly to store 300x ECC/AES-256 keys, 150x ECC-521 keys, 19x RSA-4096 keys, or 38x RSA-2048 keys. What Nitrokey HSM 2 is used for:

    Under certain circumstances the Nitrokey Storage could use an empty AES key to encrypt the mass storage and Password Safe, allowing an attacker to decrypt the encrypted data. As a precaution all Nitrokey Storage should be updated to firmware 0.51 or higher which prevents unlocking with a zero AES key. Nitrokey Storage with firmware 0.51 or higher and other Nitrokey models are not affected.

    Nitrokey is proud to announce a partnership with The Linux Foundation to equip over 2000 Linux kernel developers with Nitrokey Start USB keys. Linux kernel developers will have the ability to cryptographically sign code with OpenPGP/GnuPG signatures, as a strict requirement when sending merge requests directly to Linus Torvalds.

    RSA-2048 Becomes Increasingly Insecure
  • 20 October 2017, 2 Comments
    Researchers discovered the ROCA vulnerability (CVE-2017-15361) which enables attackers to compute their victim's private RSA keys with little effort. Affected are RSA keys being generated in various hardware systems which contain the vulnerable chip from Infineon Technologies, such as computers with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), smart cards and USB dongles.

    Do you need strong hardware-based encryption for your own software but are afraid of it's complex integration? Here is a solution for you. The Nitrokey Encryption Tool is a command line interface application which uses on-device RSA keys to encrypt/decrypt AES keys used in turn to encrypt user data. This way you don't need to deal with hardware integration or more complicated RSA.
