it is a way of decrypting

without using a passphrase,
possibly avoiding issues of keyloggers, passphrase capturing,
and concerns about memory

a keyfile on a smartcard that would work with truecrypt,
might provide the most secure option

i defer to others more familiar with computer security 
for their opinions
on whether or not there is any actual advantage 
over secure passphrase usage
