Kingston outs ultra-secure DataTraveler 5000 USB

Flash memory device maker Kingston on Wednesday released its DataTraveler 5000 USB flash drive meant for government and enterprise customers. Secured by SPYRUS technology gives it 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption, FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certification, XTS-AES cipher mode and elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) algorithms to meet the US government's Suite B standards.

FIPS 140-2 certification meets federal standards set out by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Level 2 means the DataTraveler 5000 has a tamper-evident construction, a power-on self test that verifies encryption is operating as it should every time the drive is plugged into a USB port. It is also waterproof up to four feet of water and has rugged titanium construction.

While the DataTraveler 5000 is available in 2-, 4-, 8- and 16GB capacities, its pricing hasn't been announced.
