The authoritative guide to Crypto Ignition Keys
If you’re an engineer in the military or governmental sector, the chances are you could be after a crypto ignition key for your next application. Look no further.
If you’re looking for a crypto ignition key that you can use for your military or governmental application, then it’s worth noting that Datakey products are recognised as the leaders in CIKs.
As you know, CIKs are essential in a huge number of security applications, and often serve as the primary way of restricting access and de-classifying secure communication equipment.
Datakey products have been used in these sectors for over 30 years now, and it’s their ability to design CIKs that not only do the job but are rugged and reliable in harsh environmental conditions that sees them prescribed by engineers from all over the world.
Rugged and Robust
Most military applications have vastly different requirements to an average engineering application – the need for ruggedness and robustness is vital, and that’s exactly where Datakey products shine. Whether it’s extreme temperatures, or extreme impacts, Datakey products still continue to do their job, making them the ideal choice for the military.
In it for the long haul
When putting together an application for military or governmental use, one of the key considerations for most engineers will be whether components will be available for the lifespan of the product.
Thankfully, Datakey products have stood the test of time; technology has come and gone, but Datakey is still here, meaning you can rest assured that if you select Datakey, you’ll have no issues accessing more components.
Due to the confidential nature of these applications we are not able to share many details on how the products are used in this area, limited examples are below.

Datakey & Cryptographic Network Security
The Datakey range of portable memory products is used extensively in the field of cryptographic network security.
There are two market leading products in the UK which protect voice, data and video communication up to and including UK Top Secret, and Datakey tokens play a key role in both.
All of these devices using the memory token as a CIK, support PRIME, the UK’s strategic standard for IP Crypto.
The first rule of Fight Club
If you’ve seen the Brad Pitt classic, you’ll know that the first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club.
And pretty much the same is true for us, in the dozens of secure communications projects we’ve been involved in over the years.
We take our customers’ confidentiality very seriously indeed, which is why we rarely talk about any projects where confidentiality and secure communication is required.
With that being said, one of our customers has put together a great short promotional video on their secure communication device and how Datakey products perform a critical role within it.
So, given that it’s very much in the public domain – and therefore doesn’t require the level of secrecy that we usually ensure on all our sensitive projects, it’s a great opportunity to showcase one of the ways in which the products are used, without breaking the first rule of Fight Club!
