  1. Kingston has unveiled its DataTraveler 5000 line of portable USB flash drives, which boasts government-grade, "ultra-secure" data protection. Aimed at enterprise customers, the drives achieved FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certification (Level 3 pending) with "SPYRUS" technology, which provides 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption, XTS-AES cipher mode, and elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) algorithms.

  2. They may be Gov't Grade, but they are still banned by the DoD...

    Good! All they have to do now is to encrypt the lemon-ink-4096-bits-per-character the amount on confidential print outs that you could find on the train, right next to one of these sofisticated USB.
    I bet it will be cheper to train the users.
  4. "government grade" = it holds a lot of (personal) data and is small enough to be easily lost? ;)
  5. i would seriously NOT recommend government to use this device. 'Ultra Secure' Laugh out Loud, why are they even showing off Fips 140 after their previous product was being cracked.
