The Digidesign iLok 2 USB Smart Key is a USB device that stores your licences for iLok-protected software. To protect them from piracy various software will look for the iLok USB key to prove you have a legitimate copy and authorize its use. The key allows you to store over 500 licences (possibly more depending on the licences) so you can carry your licences everywhere with you.
Backwards compatible, upgrading from the original iLok is simple using the Move Licenses Utility (though it is advisable to check your software publishers restrictions before trying this). Like its predecessor the Digidesign iLok 2 also features Zero Downtime protection. This means if your iLok breaks and you have a spare, you can obtain temporary licences to keep you up and running. Send them the broken device and they will validate it and load your permanent licences into your iLok account.
You can also customise the Digidesign iLok 2 with a label. Simple as that sounds, you really don't want to pick up the wrong one in a studio.

It might seem expensive for what it does, but being able to carry your licenses for software with you and use them away from your usual set-up is a much more useful thing than you'd think.
Obviously the software has to already exist on the computer you wish to use the iLok with, but other than that having this in your pocket or bag is extremely useful for moving producers.
