The Key Container Project

The Key Container Project is based on an idea from 2019 to create smart card-like devices for securing encryption keys by reusing some of our old hardware, primarily abandoned smart phones.

In 2020 me and one of my peers have written a paper on the topic for the annually held Scientific Students’ Associations Conference at Óbuda University, for which we have received an award.

In 2021 I’ve elaborated the first working prototype that enables an old smart phone to create SHA512 signatures using RSA private keys in a way GnuPG would act as if it was using an actual smart card. I’ve based my bachelor’s thesis upon my experience for which I’m proudly announcing I was awarded another time.
