Zymbit provides Zymkey security modules for Raspberry Pi based on the ATECC508A CryptoAuthentication chip in different form factor: either a USB stick, an I2C module, or for further integration into your own design, an SMT component.

The I2C security module is available in two different models:

  • Zymkey 4i going for $43 is available from now.
  • Zymkey 5i  supports blockchain technology. It can be pre-ordered for $47 with 32 unique key slots, and support for secp256K1 curves. This model is expected to ship on September 15 onwards.

Zymkey features a secure element root of trust, a real-time clock, a true random number generator (TRNG) and it enables multifactor device ID & authentication, data encryption & signing, key storage & generation, and physical tamper detection:

  • Multifactor Device ID & Authentication
  • Data Encryption & Signing
  • Key Storage & Generation
  • Physical Tamper Detection
  • Secure Element Root of Trust

A Python or C/C++ API is provided by Zymbit to make it easier to add Zymkey support to any Linux application.
