    Secure USB stick required

    Any recommendations for a very secure (preferably one with a fingerprint reader) USB memory stick? I need one with a large capacity (around 2GB) and want to put sensitive data (eg. password files) onto it. If it's secure and gets nicked it should be virtually impossible for anyone to access the data on it.

    I got a 2GB cruizer titanium in the uk, from picstop as well

    Why do you say they are the best type?

    They do come with security software, but not finger print. As said perviously i think Aria are doing finger print ones cheep at the moment

    What is the 'Cruzerlock' software? If it means that the contents are encrypted and cannot be read without a key then this might do. I use Ilium eWallet and, whilst that itself is password protected, I don't want anyone to be able to see that the password file is there if the USB key gets lost or stolen.

    Re: Secure USB stick required

    Personally I put a large file on the key which holds and encrypted file system. Bestcrypt is good for encrypted containers, the down side is you need to install a driver on the computer your accessing the files from, which can be a plus as well as a minus. Personally though I use cryptsetup directly on linux these days, however have used bestcrypt in the past.

    I did notice a spammer on another thread earlier, the posts have probably been removed.
