You'll need a card that conforms to the OpenPGP standard.  The only
distributor I know of is Kernel Concepts [1].  However, you also get a
free OpenPGP card when you join the Fellowship of the Free Software
Foundation [2].

At this stage, you can only store 1kb RSA keys on OpenPGP cards.  I am
currently working on an implementation using BasicCards that will
support 4kb RSA keys, but it's not a priority for me.
