At the LinxTag Berlin me had a look at the German Privacy Foundation booth and
they are playing around with a very kewl thing: a combined smartcard/USB
For security stuff this seems to me like an excellent idea, since the
smartcard holds the secret keys and the USB stick part could serve as the
It doesnt need a card reader plugged to the computer and having the boot
partition on an external stick eliminates one of the few possible attack
scenarios left with a fully encrypted disk.
