USB software - 12/22/2007 5:01:17 PM

I am searching for security software for a USB flash drive.

I need sw to store passwords knowing that the passwords are inaccessible from the net.

I've seen ads for a flash drive (USB) loaded with such sw but was hoping that since I own a 2gb drv, I would be able to install sw on my drv.

What's the scoop?

TrueCrypt is an free/open source encryption package...  Encrypts the whole thumb drive or just a file that you can mount.  Use it in traveller mode... requires that you are an admin on a windows system.

KeePass is a portable open source utility that can manage your passwords.

7-Zip is an open source file compression utility... you can zip/7z up a text file and encrypt the archive with AES256.  Command line version makes it portable.

Gnu Privacy Guard = OpenPGP... you can encrypt your file and run it portably from the USB drive.

Steganos LockNote is an executable that is a portable text document... you can password protect the text contained in that exe file.

I could go on for a while, but the above should get you looking in the right direction... I'd say KeePass is your best bet.

KeePass alternative: AnyPassword
It's also free like KeePass.

I'm sure it works, but for true security needs, one should consider open source.
