Since its so common to loose an external hard drive or usb thumb drive I am looking into a semi-simple solution for
my executives that can allow them to encrypt there usb storage media this way its a bit harder for someone once its
lost or stolen.
I have tried installing truecrypt on there usb device then create the secure volume with the extra space,however
since the installation directory and password authentication all occurs on the same usb device is it possible to
recover parts or the entire password from the device once its in the attackers hands?
What are others using?
I meant my IronKey. They are very easy to use. I've had no
issues using them on many different laptops and computers.
