Swissbit at it-sa 2023


October 10-12, 2023 in Nuremberg


Bronschhofen (Switzerland), Nuremberg (Germany), 26 September 2023 – This year, Swissbit is once again represented at Europe's largest IT security trade fair, it-sa. In Nuremberg, the company will present a selection of security solutions from the iShield portfolio, in which Swissbit has bundled its plug-and-play security products. At the booth of the Germering-based ICT distributor ALLNET in Hall 6, Booth 344, Swissbit will show, among other things, the new, self-encrypting microSD card iShield Archive for the protection of sensitive data. In addition, visitors can expect a demo of the hardware security key iShield Key Pro and how it can be used in the field of access control in addition to its function as a FIDO stick.

New: iShield Archive protects sensitive information

The recently launched iShield Archive microSD card provides reliable encryption and access protection for sensitive data. The card can be used host-independently with all common camera types and is aimed at users for whom the confidentiality of sensitive data and data protection in accordance with DSGVO are top priorities. Insurance companies, authorities, or security agencies can use the plug-and-play solution to ensure that recordings are not seen, copied, or deleted by unauthorized persons under any circumstances. iShield Archive encrypts data in hardware with AES-256-bit and can be used in WORM scenarios (Write Once Read Many). The microSD is UHS-I U3 and V30 rated for 4K video recording and is available in capacities from 16 to 64 GB.

More than just a FIDO stick: iShield Key Pro

iShield Key Pro offers even more flexibility for secure passwordless, phishing-resistant authentication and online account protection thanks to the integration of additional security standards and features. In addition to the FIDO standard, iShield Key Pro also supports HOTP (Hash-Based-One-Time-Password) and PIV (Personal Identity Verification) and can also be used for access control via HID. The security key also allows up to 32 passkeys to be stored for password-free login to websites.

Secure Boot for Raspberry Pi

The easy-to-implement security solution consists of the PS-45u-DP microSD card "Raspberry Edition" and a software development kit. This enables effective securing of the Raspberry Pi bootloader, thereby encrypting or write-protecting boot and application code, proprietary know-how, and intellectual property. The security policies can be implemented in three different ways: via PIN entry, via the PU-50n USB stick as an authentication dongle, or via a NET Policy Server. The Secure Boot solution is compatible with Raspberry Pi 2, 3B+, CM3+, and 4.
