Kingston DataTraveler 5000 secure flash USB memory drive features 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption

Kingston is shipping their latest secure digital memory product, the DataTraveler 5000 USB Flash drive. It features 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption, XTS cipher mode and elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) algorithms to meet Suite B standards.

Targeting government and enterprise customers, and approved by the U.S. government, Kingston’s state-of-the-art data protection solution is really just plug and play. They are using SPYRUS technology for the XTS-AES and ECC. This is in line with acceptable policies for data sharing of both classified and unclassified documents within the U.S. government and DoD.

Cipher mode for encryption is XTS-AES, much stronger than CBC, ECB and other modes. With FIPS 140-2 standard, the DataTraveler 5000 is tamper-evident and will notify users if their drive has been tampered with. The power-on self test feature also verifies encryption is running properly each time the drive is connected to a USB port.

Shipping in 2, 4, 8 and 16GB sizes, they will sell for $111, $185, $231 and $400 respectively.
Windows 7, Vista and XP only supported, sorry no Macs just yet.
