  • Sensitive Information
  • Viruses and Malware
  • Data Theft
solutions
Solutions
  • Educate the users.
  • Lock your system.
  • Anti-virus
  • Include return info on the drive.
  • Use third party software to restrict USB drive use
hardware encryption
Hardware Encryption
  • Uses up to 256 bit AES encryption.
  • This meets the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 standards.
  • When drive is first used, a random number is generated for the encryption key.
  • The key is never loaded onto the system, so the key is not vulnerable to traditional attacks.
  • Encryption can never be turned off, either accidentally or on purpose.
design
Design

Tamper Resistant Design

  • all circuit and components are surrounded with a tough epoxy compound
  • Firmware protects against power analysis, temperature and probing attacks
  • A thin film metal coating surrounds the onboard memory to prevent electrical scanning
self defending
Self-Defending
  • Uses an internal password counter on the cryptographic chip, rather than storing that counter in flash memory.
  • Also, there is a global counter of failed password attempts.
  • And if a maximum number of incorrect passwords are entered, the encryption keys and data are all securely erased.
  • Has defense mechanisms for when the drive is inserted into a possibly insecure computer.
internet security
Internet Security
  • Can store your remembered passwords securely
  • The online manager can only be accessed with your password and the Iron Key inserted into a drive.
  • The Iron Key site uses the image for mutual authentication.
  • Firefox can be installed on the drive and can run a secure session.
