● Open Source & Independent Security Assessment

  • Both hardware and software are open-source, free software and allow independent security reviews. Customizable, no vendor lock-in, no security via obfuscation, no hidden security issues!

● No Backdoors — No NSA

  • Installed firmware can be exported and verified, preventing attackers from inserting backdoors into products during shipping. Products are open-source and free of backdoors. Secret keys are generated only by you and we have no access to your private information.

Why Safe Haven needs to have hardware keys & ledgers?

One goal of this partnership is to implement a secure login mechanism into our digital inheritance platform for our legal entities using Nitrokey products.
Secondly, we want the store the private keys of our inheritable tokens (SHA & TAN) allowing us to utilize the safest measures possible. In order for us to guarantee this, we will not use non-open source products. Thus, the need to be able to offer our own ledger.
