Kingston has announced that its IronKey D300 Encrypted USB Flash Drive product line has been certified by NATO, making the IronKey D300, IronKey D300S, and IronKey D300SM part of the Alliance’s NATO Information Assurance Product Catalog (NIAPC).
The drives themselves are not new, but obtaining “approval” from NATO will obviously be used by Kingston in promoting these devices.
Recall that IronKey D300 Encrypted USB Flash Drive drives support AES encryption with a 256-bit key in XTS mode, FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified. It is also worth noting a durable metal case and protection against dust and water (IPX8).
Drives are available in versions from 4 to 128 GB. They can offer a USB 3.1 interface and good speed performance, especially for more capacious versions.
