    Default Hardware dongle with FreeBSD support?

    Hello questions-list!

    I'd like to know if anyone here is aware of a hardware manufacturer or
    supplier that offers dongles with FreeBSD support? (A small piece of hardware
    to plug into a USB or serial/parallel port with the possibility to store
    encrypted information on it.)

    Background: The company I work for sells a system running on FreeBSD and we
    need to have this kind of copy protection and the possibility to store some
    bits of information on the dongle. Our current solutions already includes a
    parallel port dongle (WIBUKEY), but the driver for this one is capable to
    check for existence only, not to store to and retrieve information from it.
    So we are looking for an alternative.

    Anyone here who can recommend a dongle with decent support for FreeBSD?

    See http://www.safenet-inc.com. They make dongles and (USB) hardware
    keys for software products and they mention support for Linux and OS X,
    so they may have something.

    An ancrypted filesystem on a USB stick is nice, but the main idea of a dongle
    is to store information, that only the owner can change. (The data on it
    needs to be protected from the customer, not somebody who might steal the
    dongle.)

    Great! Those guys seem to have drivers for FreeBSD 5.0+ for programming their
    USB dongles.

    Thanks Anthony
