Product Description

The encryption chipset incorporated within the diskG encrypts all data using 128-bit or 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption. The diskG is the only USB hard drive to be awarded the CESG CCTM government accreditation. The diskG also utilises FIPS PUB 197 validated Encryption Algorithm. The recommended standard for symmetric encryption is AES (advanced Encryption Standard). The Committee of National Security Systems (CNSS) rates the AES algorithm as acceptable for encrypting top secret data on their AES policy fact sheet, stating 'The design and strength of all key lengths of the AES algorithm (i.e. 128,192 and 256) are sufficient to protect classified information up to the SECRET level. TOP Secret information will require use of either the 192 or 256 key lengths. The diskG uses a three pronged approach to protect against a Brute Force Attack. The first step is to deny access to the drive until the drive can verify the user PIN. After six incorrect attempts the drive will lock itself, requiring the drive to be disconnected and then reconnected. This feature blocks automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. Lastly, after one hundred incorrect PIN attempts, the diskG assumes it is being attacked and will destroy the encryption key and lock itself, rendering the data useless and requiring a total reset and reformat to redeploy the diskG. The diskG also incorporates Variable Time Circuit (VTC) technology, which thwarts 'timing attacks' aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behaviour and infiltrating diskG's electronics.
