IronKey: Encrypted USB Flash Drive on Steroids
IronKey isn't just another encrypted USB flash-drive-key-stick-thingy. For a start, the company makes a big thing of its claim that IronKey is the only such device designed from the get-go to be secure (as opposed to a flash drive that's had security "bolted-on," presumably).

It's an interesting claim, but of arguable merit. However, there are other aspects that are worth talking about:

  • This key will self-destruct. If you try to disassemble it, or if you enter the wrong password too many times, the IronKey doesn't just wipe itself, it destroys the flash memory, making it worthless.
  • It's not just a device, but also a service. If you register the device on IronKey's Web site, the company offers password recovery/escrow and access to IronKey's own Tor anonimizing network (i.e., a private network, not the usual public one).
  • It also acts as a 2FA device. A firmware update will add the necessary logic to make it act as a VeriSign VIP device, for two-factor authentication. An "enterprise" version of the device will also have similar support for RSA SecurID.
