ArduPilot Project is an Free Software autopilot system for various vehicles: multi-copters, helicopters, planes, boats, submarines, rovers… It uses Monocypher to secure its bootloader.

Joulescope is a precision DC energy analyser. It uses Monocypher to secure firmware updates and sign calibrations. They also wrote Python bindings for the host code.

Kryptor is a file encryption tool that aims to be a better version of age and Minisign, to provide a leaner, user friendly alternative to GPG.

Signify implementation in PicoLisp (Signify is a file signature/verification utility).

Skudra is a clone of, implemented in PicoLisp. It uses Monocypher’s BLAKE2b implementation for hashing. Here it is in action.

The TKey is a USB security key inspired by measured boot and DICE that can execute arbitrary programs. It uses Monocypher in some of its associated applications (a signing oracle and an SSH client token). This third party application also uses Monocypher to turn TKeys into a decryption tokens. It talks to this plugin written for the Age encryption program.

Wireguard (IK pattern) implementation (from the Noise Protocol Framework) in PicoLisp.

World_Gate is a platform to build, run, and share a multi-agent strategic environment. One of its applications is to run tabletop games on a network of computers. It uses Monocypher to secure its online communications.
