PKCS#11 v3

Contribute to standardisation of PKCS#11 for cryptographic tokens

The PITCHFORK is a free/libre hardware device for compartmentalizing key material and cryptographic operations in a small and durable USB device. It uses a Cortex-M3 processor and stores all keys in the CPUs flash. The PITCHFORK has an embedded radio interface over which it can do secure key exchanges with other devices, including "post-quantum" cryptography. Over USB it can send and receive messages using various modern low-level crypto protocols providing different aspects of overall security.

Stef Marsiske from the Pitchfork project team joined the OASIS PKCS #11 standards committee to make sure the intersection of PKCS # 11 supported algorithms and Pitchfork algorithms is no longer empty.

Pitchfork is supported by NLnet and the Internet Hardening Fund.
