Pippin authentication dongleEdit
Sometimes called "security keys", these bypass the Pippin authentication process, allowing developers to test CD-ROM software that have not yet been submitted to Apple Computer or its partners for review. The MicroGuard Plus ADB dongle was manufactured by Micro Macro Technologies, an Israeli company that was acquired by Aladdin Knowledge Systems in March 1999.
