Password validation and key generation on the hardware itself – remote management console for centralized management of all USB flash drives of an organization of the USB stick Kanguru Defender elite checks the password and generates the key on the hardware itself Aachen, 05.07.2010. The USB stick Kanguru Defender elite is immune to hackers. In Germany by OPTIMALLY system advice distributed hardware-encrypted data store is affected not by the vulnerability, which recently caused a scandal. The examination of the user’s password on the hardware itself and the individual response code to ensure that the data can be decrypted only by authorized. “The recently published vulnerability is so blatant that I can’t understand that the certification authority has discovered they didn’t!” declares Bert Rheinbach, CEO of OPTIMAL systems consulting. “Kanguru Defender elite, however, can be cracked on them nor in any other way.” As a German distributor of Kanguru got his test laboratory the stick on heart and kidneys checked. Entering correct password, Kanguru Defender elite generates a one-time password that allows access to the stored data.
Differently than the cracked USB sticks this password on the hardware itself is generated every time a new. Kanguru Defender encrypts all stored data via hardware with the high cipher 256 bit AES (advanced encryption standard) with CBC elite. Also, is the USB flash drive certified to FIPS 140-2, and has a built-in virus scanner, as well as physical read-only. He can be managed remotely, even through the cloud. The USB sticks into disrepute had this recognized high standard of encryption vulnerability in Auch, USB-sticks. But the password has not been on the stick, but verified in the software on the PC. During a successful registration procedure they sent to confirm a string to the stick, each time the same sequence for all drives of this type. The tester so just wrote a program, the in the The current password memory made that the appropriate string to the stick sent was – irrespective of the entered password.
