The DataTraveler 5000 meets FIPS 140-2 level 2 certification for transportation of classified materials and level 3 certification is pending. It goes the extra mile with a 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption scheme. They’ve also included the XTS cipher ECC algorithms that meets Suite B standards required by the US Department of Defense. This is being marketed as a device for government agencies, and it’s pretty hardcore. After 10 “intrusion attempts” (which we hope isn’t just a mistyped password), the the drive locks down and destroys the encryption key. The case of the thumb drive is a sealed titanium-coated steel body that’s tamper-proof and waterproof.
