Dear Crypto Stick Friend, we need your support!

PKCS#11 is a popular interface to connect smart cards (also Crypto Stick)
with various software applications such as Firefox, TrueCrypt, Mozilla
Thunderbird, PuTTY and many more [1]. The current driver [2] for the Crypto
Stick works well but it is not open source and hence not well integrated to
Linux systems and also lacks full write support. The OpenSC framework [3] is
the dominating open source PKCS#11 library but it can't be used with the
Crypto Stick yet. We want to achieve full read and write support of the
Crypto Stick in OpenSC and the driver will be released as open source and can
be used by all Crypto Stick users. Because our time and resources are
dedicated to the development of Crypto Stick 2 we need Euro 900 to delegate
this task to an external developer. We already collected Euro 500 (thanks to
Kicktipp [4]) and need another Euro 400 to have sufficient funding. *Please
support this effort with a donation.*

Because we are a non-profit organization, if we receive your donation before
New Year's Eve, we are glad to provide you a donation receipt of 2011. (Of
course, otherwise you will get a donation receipt of 2012.)

*PayPal*: Send your donation to spende at [5] and state
"Crypto Stick" as purpose.

*Wire transfer*:

 * Recipient: German Privacy Foundation e.V.
 * Account number: 329 31 80
 * BLZ: 100 700 24
 * Institute: Deutschen Bank
 * IBAN: DE13100700240329318000
 * Purpose: Crypto Stick

We wish you a Happy New Year!

Crypto Stick Team
