About

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ZYMKEY

                                             
       

ZYMKEY SECURES RASPBERRY Pi & LINUX IoT APPLICATIONS

And gets you free data services too!

 

ZYMKEY is a tiny device that installs in seconds and secures your linux application against common security attacks. You can use it with your own services or connect it to Zymbit cloud for instant monitoring and remote access. Unique embedded private keys make it the perfect security companion for devices that are standalone and unattended. 

HOW TO LOSE YOUR IDENTITY IN 20 SECONDS

In the time it takes you to go to the bathroom at a meetup or hackathon, the credentials to your network, services and logins that are stored on your SD card can be copied. It's that easy and unfortunately it happens more often than you would think.

PROTECT THE KEYS TO YOUR KINGDOM 

Your SD card usually stores the keys to your Kingdom, not just your Raspberry Pi or Linux device. SD cards typically hold keys for the networks you regularly connect to, the services you login to, WiFi keys etc. Copying an SD card is really easy and even encrypted keys can be copied and used with relative ease. 

So it's really important to protect your Kingdom by NOT STORING KEYS ON THE SD CARD.  ZYMKEY contains unique and secure private keys that protect the critical information on your SD card.

ZYMKEY SECURES YOU AGAINST COMMON ATTACKS

ZYMKEY COMES IN TWO VERSIONS 

ZYMKEY-RPi for Raspberry Pi: The low profile board allows many RPI plates to be fitted on top of the ZYMKEY. Ideal for embedded applications. 

ZYMKEY-USB for Linux Devices: The USB version adds additional functionality and is usable on any Linux platform with an available USB host port (including Raspberry Pi) 

ZYMKEY TECHNICAL FEATURES

The USB & RPi versions share many common features. The RPi version has been specifically designed to sit under a HAT and to be installed permanently on the device. The USB version can be used with any Linux platform like Beaglebone,UDOO, Dragon, also Raspberry Pi. It has the additional benefit of a touch interface as it will typically be mounted external to the host computer.
