When it comes to the security of your personal data, you may want to keep things like your photos and music safe with encryption. When it comes to the US government exchanging classified documents with other countries, they take security to a different level.




Kingston has announced a new ultra-secure flash drive called the DataTraveler 5000 that is approved by the US government and the DoD for classified and unclassified documents. The flash drive uses 256-bit AES encryption and has an XTS cipher mode with elliptic curve cryptography.


The drive is FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified and Level 3 certification is pending. Kingston offers the drive in 2, 4, 8, and 16GB capacities with pricing ranging from $111 to $400.
