After 3 grueling years in development, we are proud to bring you the VivoKey Flex One! The Flex One is a patent pending subdermal secure element enabling fully autonomous separation of your cryptographic keys and functions from vulnerable general computing platforms such as your smartphone or computer. The ability to not only carry your OTP, PGP, and other cryptographic keys with you at all times, but also perform cryptographic functions in vivo (generate OTP codes, encrypt & decrypt data, etc.) without ever revealing private keys to the NFC interface you are interacting with is a huge step forward for personal digital identity and data security.
The Flex One product will require the specific and specialized installation services of a medical professional or body modification artist skilled in tissue manipulation. The Flex One is approximately 8mm wide by 40mm long, with a thickness of 0.4mm. The standard installation method will be to make a scalpel incision between 8mm and 10mm long. Next, a dermal elevator will need to be used to separate fascia tissue, creating a channel between dermis and muscle tissue that is approximately 8mm wide by 45mm to 50mm long. The extra length will be required to allow sufficient space to allow safe suturing after placement. Once a sufficient channel is made, using sterile gloves pick up the Flex One and insert into the channel by hand. Do not use tools (such as forceps) to handle or place the Flex One. Once the Flex One is placed fully into the channel, carefully suture to close.
