While I don't use the managed enterprise solution, I have an IronKey
for personal use.  I have used it successfully on:
* WinXP
* Vista
* Win7
* Mac OSX
* Linux (RHEL 5.x)

The only one that required elevated privelege was the Linux one, and
that was because it hadn't been configured to auto-mount the new
partitions.

Are there any options like this that work on Apple Mac OS X and

use the same machine to whole time.

Thanks,

I personally haven’t used FreeOTFE Explorer, however you may want to check out Iron Key. It isn't freeware or 
opensource but it is a rock solid product.  I personally use them here at our organization. The enterprise version 
allows everything you are looking for and more.

Subject: Encrytped USB Key quick win solution‏


Hi,

I'm working in a large enterprise that will look next year for an "enterprise class solution" that can handle all 
the life cycle of USB key that use encryption.

But now, we have to find a quick win solution that we can put in production shortly with a limited budget.

I personally used Truecrypt for several years but here the reason why I don’t want to use it for an enterprise 
solution:

1-If the user lost the password of his USB key, you are dead
2-If the user go on a computer that don't already have Truecrypt installed, you need administrative privilege

I did some search and I tried FreeOTFE (http://www.freeotfe.org/)

It does what I wanted to:

1-Technical Support will be able to create a backup key before giving the USB key to the user. So they will be able 
to recover the data if the user lost his password.
2-There is a utility called FreeOTFE Explorer that can open the encrypted volume on the USB Key in the case you 
don't have administrative privilege on the computer. The app is not very quick but it seems to do the job.

My question is: Did someone had any bad experience with this app? If yes, did you find a better one that did the 
things I mentioned before and was working fine?

Thanks

JEP
