The bootloader validates kernel and initramfs, the kernel mounts only an encrypted root lesystem. So only trusted software runs on picosafe.

Picosafe uses a 270 MHz cryptoprocessor with an AES decryption unit, USB 2.0 and random number generator. In addition picosafe provides SD memory card (2 – 64 GB) both for application and data. Whether as a central SSH access token on all server certificates are, or as a VPN access point for the Company or as a mini Applicances for mail, calendar, passwords or your own files picosafe offers the ideal platform. If you lose the stick, no data is lost. All data are from the boot loader to the user data fully encrypted. An ideal companion for administrators, businessmen and security-conscious users.
