Thanks, I was reading the whole thread and it was very interesting to me. I know that the Sun SCA-1000 does NOT encrypt AES, but there is something that was not discussed in the thread: Random Devices. Thats what I found in a Sun doc about the SCA-1000: # Hardware Random Numbers: True random number generation of up to 125 Kbps Without such a board a system creates "only" pseudo random numbers. Right now I am very interested in questions regarding crypto and randomness. I wanted first check some more about this, then opening a discussion thread here about the quality of tor keys and PRNG versus hardware based randomness. Thats the main reason why I am interested in that card. Thomas
