As its name implies, usb security is a program designed to protect your USB flash drives, by allowing you to set a password. It can be easily configured, even by less experienced users.
Protecting data goes well beyond encryption. Tough enough to go anywhere, the Aegis Secure Key 3.0’s resilient design makes it perfect for travel and field applications. With its rugged, extruded aluminum crush-resistant casing, the Aegis Secure Key 3.0 is tamper evident and well-protected against physical damage. The use of software that blocks ads limits our ability to provide you with the journalism usb protect you enjoy. Consider turning your Ad Blocker off so that we can continue to provide the world class journalism you have become accustomed to. Perhaps the most complex and stealthy attack would see the plugged-in device exploiting a zero-day vulnerability in the computer’s USB driver – similar to the method used in the notorious Stuxnet attack against the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in Iran.
It’s a good observation as it would seem to be the root problem. It’s not, though. There are existing methods to handle general I/ with quite a bit of security. I even posted a few new one’s on this blog. The thing usb secure is that the I/ mechanism must be designed for secure operation, which mainstream I/ typically isn’t. Combining insecure I/ architectures, insecure devices, and universal attribute predictably leads to insecurity.
