Please add "Smartcards" (i.e. "Qualified Digital Certificates", as defined by the EU legislation) as hardware category.
"Qualified Digital Certificates" are USB tokens containing a digital X.509 private keys. They are used for signing and encrypting documents.
Their use is regulated by the EU, subject to legal requirements. The "certificates" are mandatory and widely used.
