Earlier today I published my article called USB & Windows to Go: Key In! on this site. Because of my eagerness to get the article out (recently I posted that I would be trying to post a lot more frequently), I have been informed that I made a number of minor errors. Here are the corrections:
- The ASK3Z keys are available in sizes from 8GB to 128GB, and not 256GB as I had mentioned. This has been corrected in the text.
- Apricorn offers larger capacity devices in their ASK3 line, including a 240GB and a 480GB model. These devices run the identical firmware, and have all the same features as the ASK3Z.
- If the brute force is tripped, the drive will crypto erase the encryption key, so that the data cannot be accessed. The drive itself is not actually wiped, but cannot be accessed.
- Because the key code is entered before the key is inserted into the computer, there is no possibility for a key-logger to steal the PIN. (This is not a correction, but another point I should have mentioned because it is cool!)
- With regard to the rebooting, I am told that the Lock Override Mode is the best way to use the device as an OS host, so the Secure Key will disregard the Re-enumeration signal from the USB port while the system reboots.
Sorry for the misunderstandings, and thank you Craig for helping me out here!
