Ironkey

IronKey Personal is a revolutionary personal security device designed to protect your data, passwords and online identity on any computer.

All data stored on an IronKey Personal drive is encrypted with high-speed military-grade hardware encryption. Unlike software-based encryption, this"always-on" protection cannot be disabled and is protected against cold-boot and brute force attacks. No one can access files stored on an IronKey unless they authenticate with the correct password. All encryption and password verification are performed in hardware, and it cannot be disabled by worms, viruses or other malware.

Secure & Private Web Browsing
IronKey drives come pre-configured with a portable version of Mozilla's popular Firefox Web browser. All data, cookies, and Web history are maintained locally on the drive. The optional IronKey Secure Sessions service protects your privacy on the Web by triple-encrypting all of your Web surfing traffic, and provides secure DNS services to help assure that you are not visiting a spoofed website.

Secure Password Management
The IronKey Identity Manager locally manages all of your online passwords with secure one-click direct access and protection against keystroke-logging spyware and other online threats. Stored passwords are protected by the same hardware-based encryption as your other data. Optional encrypted password backup is available as an online service in case you forget. The IronKey Identity Manager also supports VeriSign® Identity Protection (VIP), which is used by many financial and commerce websites to strongly authenticate and better protect their customers.

Self-Service Password Recovery
If you forget the password to your drive, IronKey offers an optional online password recovery service. The service uses advanced mutual authentication technology to verify your identity, allowing you to recover your device's password securely.

Rugged and Physically Secure
Your IronKey is an investment that will last for years. Its rugged metal casing protects against physical damage, and the internal components are sealed to protect against tampering. Also, your IronKey drive has passed and exceeded military waterproof testing requirement.

Reliable and Premium Quality
Shielded in a solid, tamper-resistant and waterproof metal casing, the IronKey drive is built to survive years of wear and tear. IronKey uses only the highest quality components, delivering 10 to 20 times the average memory lifespan of a traditional flash drive.

Hardware-Level Key Management and Defences
When an IronKey drive is plugged into a laptop or desktop computer, the user must authenticate with a password before data and applications are accessible. Unlike software-based encryption, the IronKey Cryptochip prevents encryption keys from being transferred and stored on PCs, where they are vulnerable. IronKey protects against brute force password guessing attacks by using non-volatile access-failure counters stored on the Cryptochip. If a thief tries to break into an IronKey and enters 10 incorrect passwords, the Cryptochip will securely erase all of the encrypted data with patent-pending Flash Trash technology. This ensures no trace of your data can be recovered from the device.

Cryptographic Authentication
Each IronKey drive is pre-configured with a client-side secure digital certificate, which can be used for strong authentication (VeriSign Identity Protection service) to participating websites. IronKey also provides a PKCS #11 interface which will allow any Windows application to potentially use the certificate.
