Cryptcard is a hardware device designed for IBM-compatible notebook computers with PCMCIA slots. It is roughly the size of a credit card, and provides the user with high speed DES encryption. For transparent full disk encryption, ECB mode DES is used, while CBC mode encryption can be applied to chosen files. Users are required to enter a password before the encryption chip activates. When full disk encryption is enabled, the hard drive is inaccessible to users without this password. The file encryption option must be used for the protection of sensitive classified data. 

Cryptcard is designed to protect information on single user notebooks, and is suitable for computers containing Sensitive Classified data that might be carried into insecure environments.
