USB Secure

I was looking for a way in which I could lock all my folders on my external drive, so I began searching for protect usb software. USB secure was the first result that popped through. In the past, I had tried experimenting with different software but there were not as good as this one. This is the most professional one I have tried.usb security

Some attackers have also targeted electronic devices directly, infecting items such as electronic picture frames and USB drives during production. When users buy the infected products and plug them into their lock usb computers, malware is installed on their computers. b SignedData.digestAlgorithms shall contain the digest algorithm used when preparing the signature. Only a digest algorithm of SHA-256 is accepted.

What I am asking are possible easy to use turnkey solutions for people (especially non-techies) to quickly deploy and not wade through the mess of technicalities reserved for technical people like us. I would expect that (at the least) any program that can generate an executable would need signing, and the OS mechanism for allowing an executable (in Linux terms, chmod and the OS loader) would require signing as well. Oops my bad. There’s still the problem that one must trust the implementation usb secure of the USB functionality. Experience with write protect shows that what they say it does and what it actually does can be very different. The operating system could notify the user of attached devices, and if new devices are attached, so at least the user knows if something is fishy. If they plug in a phone and it comes up as a keyboard for instance. So now I have to start using CD’s for my sneakernet xfers, which is all xfers between my online machine and my work machine.
