Encryption and decryption is performed by reading the key of ETOKEN or USB KEY.

There's no support for that.

Since AES is a symmetric key cipher, doing something like that would mean encrypted files could only be decrypted using the same physical device. That seems a bit risky. What if the device is lost or damaged?

I am intrigued, though. Physical security is generally a good thing to add.
