Why do I need HyperMate hardware wallet?
Centralized institutions may close-down for various reasons, and your crypto assets will be exposed to risks plainly. In the current industry, the safest way to store assets is hardware wallet, and if your operation of short-term transactions of large assets is at a low frequency, it is recommended to store your assets in hardware wallet such as HyperMate.
The function of HyperMate is to isolate your private key from the Internet, and isolate your private key from your public key. Also, the calling of private key to confirm the signature is done by physical buttons. Therefore, the use of HyperMate can protect the assets to a large extent.
Is it safe to use HyperMate?
HyperMate and HyperMate Pro have been audited by top security companies such as KnownSec and SlowMist. Open firmware source code, complete and accessible version history, no backdoor risk. The specific content are as follows:
1. Built-in CC EAL6+ military-grade security chip
The secure microcontroller chip used by HyperMate is produced by Infineon. CC EAL6+ does not only mean that HyperMate security chip reaches the standard for military use, but also it has passed the necessary tests and evaluations of CC security certification.
2、Single chip design
HyperMate adopts the single-chip design, without adding any chips for auxiliary calculation or information storage in the design circuit. All the components such as buttons, screens and Bluetooth are directly connected to the security chip to avoid data transmission between multiple chips, completely eliminating any possibility of tampering with data.
3. Encrypted& Randomly generated PIN code
HyperMate adopts the randomly arranged keyboard for PIN code input, each at different position, and no real PIN number displayed, minimizing the probability of passers-by peeking at the PIN codes and stealing private keys. When the PIN code is entered incorrectly 10 times in a row, HyperMate will automatically destroy the stored data, which can effectively prevent the hardware wallet from being violently cracked by hackers.
4. Double verification
The trading information can be fully displayed on the HyperMate’s display screen, and once the APP may suffer tampering, the information displayed on the screen not the same, the user can reject the transaction directly. Moreover, the information on the screen is produced by the chip internally through calculation and encryption.
5. Hardware multi-sig
By multi-sig, any transfer is controlled by multiple signatures (up to 7), which is convenient for enterprises and teams to store and manage digital assets. HyperMate supports the multi-signature of BTC, HC, ETH, and ERC20, and will support more soon.
6. Private key offline stored
The private keys and mnemonics are generated by hardware totally that never break out of security element.
7. Certified by the U.S. FCC
FCC, fully known as Federal Communications Commission, established in 1934 under Communications Act, is an independent agency of the United States government, directly accountable to Congress. FCC controls radio broadcasts, television, telecommunications, satellites, and cables to coordinate national and international communications. Many radio applications, communication products, and digital products to enter the U.S. market requires FCC recognition.
8. CE certification declared
CE certification, the “main requirement” that forms the core of the European Directive, is a proof of security and is considered as a passport for the manufacturer entering the European market.
9. Built-in OLED display directly connected SE, end MITM attacks
10. Meet the BIP32/BIP39/BIP44/BIP45 standard, recovery completely offline
HyperMate opts to create and restore wallets completely offline, and the private key is stored in an encrypted security chip once it is generated, and cannot be read even by the hardware wallet itself.
11. Physical button control confirmation
12. AES encryption algorithm for ciphertext transmission
13. Security team escort
HyperMate combines China`s leading brand in information security and world`s top security team to protect your digital assets.
The HyperMate Pro adds the fingerprint recognition function. You only need to properly keep your private key, thus the security of the asset is ensured.
If I lost my HyperMate device, will I lost the assets stored in it?
In the process of using HyperMate, what users need to pay attention to is to keep the mnemonics correct and safe. Even if the device is lost, the assets are still safe without getting your mnemonics and unavailable through any physical methods. You only need to buy a new HyperMate device and import the mnemonic phrases into it to restore the assets.
What are the differences between Hypermate Pro and Hypermate G?
HyperMate Pro inherits all the functions of HyperMate G, and combines traditional mature security technologies to achieve a secondary security upgrade at the physical level to prevent illegal hijacking of user accounts by external factors in extreme cases, thus to ensure that every transaction is correct and safe.
Users need to verify their fingerprints on HyperMate Pro to confirm that the transaction is initiated by themselves, which double guarantees the security of the transaction;
· Bluetooth 5.0
Bluetooth 5.0 has an increase and optimization for the speed of low-power devices. Bluetooth 5.0 combines with wifi to assist in positioning indoor locations, improving transmission speed and increasing effective working distance.
· Battery Capacity
HyperMate Pro has a longer battery life than HyperMate G.
Optimizing user experience
HyperMate G only has English language, but Pro supports English, Korean, Italian, and Arabic;
· Smoother physical keys
HyperMate Pro has made a lot of optimizations in details to try to provide users with better experience.
HyperMate Pro has larger monitor and the physical keys, which is more intuitive and easier to operate.
Also, the vertical structure, the appropriately increased volume and weight and the perfectly arranged keys make it more suitable for one-handed operation.
How does HyperMate guarantee the security of the underlying system?
The underlying system of HyperMate, java cos is a new generation of smart card system based on the Java Card. HypwerMate Pro is upgraded and customized upon the CC EAL 5+ certification.
Note: CC stands for Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation. EAL, the Evaluation Assurance Level is a category ranking assigned to an IT product or system, after a Common Criteria security evaluation. Levels range from EAL1 to 7. Usually the IC card chip must pass EAL 4+ certification, and the HyperMate underlying system reaches EAL 5+, which is the first in the industry.
