Hi Everyone,

Security seems to be a bit of a problem for Windows users.
We have come up with a solution using our ‘DiscreetKey’ product – all it requires is an additional download on your part.
Here’s how it would work after the initial set up:

•   Insert your DiscreetKey into your computer (via the USB port)
•   A padlock icon will appear on your screen
•   Simple drop the wallet file onto the padlock icon
•   Your wallet is now encrypted and the BitCoin application starts.

You can now use the BitCoin program as usual. When you exit the program your wallet is automatically re-encrypted. The wallet file encryption is highly secure (256 Bit AES with one-time password) and can be backed up (via e-mail, cloud computing services, etc.).

We expect the final product will cost around 3 BitCoins – this includes the physical DiscreetKey and KeyMaker as described on our website http://datadiscretion.com/products/discreetkey

What do you think?

We would appreciate any ideas!

Love the physical design, although I wonder if it maybe should be a little more plain. The current design screams "I have important things on me! Steal me!". They won't GET anything important because of the encryption, but you'll still have to replace a key. Just a thought.

Thanks for the reply!

You actually get a KeyMaker with every DiscreetKey which allows you to turn any USB into a new 'key'.

This means you could really disguise your 'key' if you wanted to.

(Remember your BitCoins are not on the 'key', they are still on your computer, but encrypted.)

What do you think?

Innovative. And IMO keys and tokens are the way of the future.

Price sounds good as compared to more expensive options, like IronKey.
