The CryptoShield is a dedicated security peripheral for the Arduino
and was made in collaboration with a previous Hacker In Residence,
Josh Datko. This shield adds specialized ICs that perform various
cryptographic operations which will allow you to add a hardware
security layer to your Arduino project. It also is a nice device for
those performing embedded security research. Needless to say this is a
great product for those of you who are interested in computer

On board each CryptoShield is a slew of hardware fresh for your use: a
real time clock (RTC) module to keep accurate time, a trusted platform
module (TPM) for RSA encryption/decryption and signing in the
hardware, an AES-128 encrypted EEPROM, an ATSHA204 authentication chip
that performs SHA-256 and HMAC-256, and an ATECC108 that performs the
Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA).

Each CryptoShield will need to have headers soldered on once you
receive it. We prefer to give you the choice of soldering on stackable
or non-stackable headers, whatever fits best for you project. The only
other items you will need to get the CryptoCape fully functional are a
dev board that supports the Arduino R3 form-factor and a CR1225 coin
cell battery. All of these additional parts can be found in the
Recommended Products section below.

Note: A portion of each sale is given back to Josh Datko for continued
development of new and exciting Cryptographic tools.
