What Is SecTerm?
SecTerm is the most secure internet environment in existence, and is the ultimate defense against malware.

SecTerm is a hardware security device, providing a small display screen on a PC keyboard, and running application software which communicates over the internet via the PC. SecTerm's internet traffic is cryptographically protected as it passes through the PC, defending it against malware residing on the PC. Malware cannot make its way onto SecTerm because SecTerm is a hardware security module.

Internet users are crying out for a remedy against the scourge of malware, and SecTerm at last delivers the peace-of-mind of true safety.

Applications include:
Online banking and other web accounts
3-D Secure web payments (including contactless NFC card emulation)
EMV chip card authentication
• Email
• US government CAC card
Bitcoin wallet
• Text editor

Introductory video:

PCs are designed to be open and to run any software, so by their nature PCs will always be vulnerable to malware. SecTerm achieves true information assurance by isolating sensitive data and tasks on a sterile platform.

A patent has been awarded for SecTerm's solution of running internet apps on a hardware security module as a PC peripheral (U.S., Australia).

SecTerm looks similar to this gaming keyboard:
