One of the most useful items to complement a security concious persons personal computer toolkit!

The homesite for the product is https://www.ironkey.com/

It may seem overly expensive but take a look at the added extras and look at the iron key forum. They do 1, 2 , 4 and 8 Gb versions and the secure sessions and password manager are superb. The price does fluctuate due to the $ as they are made in the states.

I got shot down for a decent deal on Norton 360, I believe these are an excellent buy for the security concious.

Cheaper to get a normal memory stick and use truecrypt if you need security. You could install Firefox etc in the encrypted partition and do everything which this claims to do.

Similarly, there are lots of free anonymous proxies out there if you have surfing habits that you're worried about people finding out about :thinking:

Truecrypt is much less secure, the keys are in a secured location.
With the web surfing it is a little more secure than just a proxy, it encrypts from the browser, read up!

agree with marble, just get normal mem stick and encrypt or use OperaTor.

Also agree with marble this is a crazy price for 1GB

Absolutly nothing to do with the size of the stick, it is the other features. Also the comments on what else to use while vaguly valid are way off the mark.

This is a serious piece to security hardware. Also by using TOR as was suggested you open yourself up to rogue nodes. Ironkey have a network of their own servers to make sure you are not subject to this.
It does make me wonder where this site has gone wrong. Look at the products for what they are, suggesting alternatives is fine but suggest apples for apples!
If items are free then great but you never get something for nothing.
Anyone with a security back ground like to comment. The forum is well worth a look and very interesting discussions are on there.

I'm not disagreeing, just interested ... but do you have any links to why Truecrypt is much less secure? I appreciate that the Ironkey has a lockout after a number of failed passwords, but brute forcing a long & complex Truecrypt password would take a very long time. Also, Truecrypt has the 'hidden' volume feature ... which is an awesome feature.

I agree with you on the web surfing ... Ironkey works using a VPN, plus most free proxies are susceptible to man in the middle attacks.

to quote Bruce Schneier the american cryptographer
There are two kinds of cryptography in this world: cryptography that
will stop your kid sister from reading your files, and cryptography
that will stop major governments from reading your files

I think that both truecrypt and ironkey fall into the latter category, so to say one is more secure than the other is irrelevant.
I'm more concerned about keeping my data safe from criminals, I don't think that the american National Security Agency would trouble their super computers on anything of mine.

I have two iron keys running in parallel with data further encrypted twice with true crypt. If i access the net, I use my own personal proxy I have subscribed to as well as the ironkeys proxy.

What is to stop the makers of Ironkey from caching and logging the information sent through it's private VPN servers?

Said Sammy, thus identifying that he/she either:

5. Something else
