I think that there may be a way to apply uncrackable PGP encryption to copy protection so that the copy protection becomes uncrackable. Certainly if the whole application only ran on the dongle, this would work.

PGP uses the same sorts of algorithm as SSL. It is not a one time pad system, so it is crackable. It may take unreasonably long on current hardware, so a real attack would simply look for a weaker link.
