I broke my Ikey :( what to get as a replacement?

Jan Schermer
I just broke my ikey 3000, left it in a notebook and sat on it :/ it
works (after fixing it with a bit of wire and glue, btw I thought part
of the FIPS certification for tokens was to cease functioning after
being messed with physicaly?), but I need to look for a replacement.
Could you advise me?
It has to be supported by opensc (of course :), OSX would be nice, Win
is not necessary but welcome, it has to be capable of holding >5
certificate chains and doing all the usual stuff without too much
hassle. It also has to be small and _very_ durable :)
I do have a smartcard reader in my laptop, but it's Texas Instruments -
not really sure it will ever work under linux... USB interface only then.

So should i get another iKey, or is there something I can upgrade to? :)

Thanks

Hi,

I'm using mostly axalto egate + cryptoflex.
Cheap, fast, easy to buy, fully documented and supported.

However there is an open source driver for egate for mac os X,
but I haven't been able to get it to work so far. It used to
work, people tell me.

With egate +cryptoflex you can buy the cards only in packs
of five, but that is convenient for many people. Buy a few
more egate tokens than cards, as those break sometimes.
(But then it is only a us$8 loss, as you can put the card
into a new token).

Andreas
