I think I already know the answer to this one, but I have been asked to post this anyway...
Just wondering if there is anyway that EEFF 4.0's EERM could be enabled to wipe a USB stick (or to be specific the encrypted container on the USB stick) if the password is entered incorrectly for X amount of times (X being a predefined number of times set on the EPo Server). Basically a self destruct feature, without the hardware combusting... It would of course require the "You have X attempts left before your data is wiped" message to be displayed if the feature was enabled.
If this is already in the pipline is there a "vote it up" page, as this is something we would really like to see.
It's not really enforceable, as the user could simply copy the container off the stick, try a few times, and then copy it back and repeat.
That's a good point. So you are saying that there would need to be an option to prevent the container from being copied or moved, to enable the enforcement of a rule to wipe the container after x failed password attempts?
Sounds like I'm asking for too much here!
you can't enforce anything without some software running on every machine preventing the copy, or support by the hardware itself - it's not possible, think about it - I can plug that stick into anything, even a digital camera - what's to stop me copying the file then?
If you need something like this, then you need to be using our hardware encrypted USB sticks - they prevent this kind of malarky.
