Keeping your Bitcoin Wallet in Chameleon encryption device's safety-net

February 18, 2014

SUNNYVALE, CA -- LucidPort Technology presents the strongest security feature to Bitcoin users. With an increase in popularity and usage of Bitcoin Wallets, Bitcoin private keys can be vulnerable as users often "leave" the Bitcoins in their hard drive without any additional layer of security protection. Using hardware-based encryption (AES-256), Chameleon creates an encrypted drive using the free space on a computer's disk and encrypts your Bitcoin private key. You can also simply encrypt the Bitcoin Private Key file and save it anywhere you desire without risking your Bitcoins. If the computer is stolen or lost, without the presence of the associated Chameleon Key, no encrypted file can be accessed.

After a quick initial setup, plug in the Chameleon USB device to access the encrypted drive, copy files to it, then unplug to secure your data. Chameleon also protects individual files or folders in unencrypted partitions. Individually encrypted files can be stored securely anywhere in your computer or on external storage devices. They can be safely transferred over the internet in email attachments, stored on flash keys and other portable media, or uploaded to cloud storage. They can be decrypted only with the original Chameleon, or an identical Chameleon duplicate.

Chameleon Pro, designed for organizational and corporate markets, adds control over groups of Chameleon devices:
• Master / User device management
• User revocation and data migration
• User policy control

A Master Chameleon device controls a collection of User Chameleon devices. A Master Chameleon can open files encrypted by any of its Users, but the Users cannot open each other's files. Users can be duplicated, recovered, and revoked by the Master.
