Differences between Nitrokey HSM2 & Smartcard-HSM 4K USB-Token

Hi all!

I’ve been investigating about Nitrokey HSM2 and I think that everything is more or less clear now, but I still have one big question: what’s the difference between the Nitrokey HSM2 and the SmartCard-HSM 4K USB-Token?

To me they both seem essentially like the same thing, but they got different names, so I’m not really sure…


Feature wise both are the same. Technically their smart card interface are implemented differently. As a user you may not notice the difference.
