Seal These Top Secret USB Drives with Wax to Prevent Data Leaks the Old-Fashioned Way
May 4th, 2012
In the old days, envelopes were sealed with wax so that the intended recipient would know right away if anyone else had snooped into her or her private correspondence.
Some people are trying to bring that concept back to life with these porcelain USB drives.
These Top Secret USB drives are safe to use wax seals on because of the material that was used to form them. Specifically, porcelain.
Of course, it’s still recommended that you protect the contents of the drive by encrypting the data or setting a password before allowing access. But taking one look at the drive–and at the seal–will let you know straight away if anyone tried poking their noses (or cursors) where they don’t belong.
The kit comes with wax, the press, and the porcelain 2, 4 or 8GB stick and is priced at €35 ($46).
