If a memory stick, costing pennies and containing a simple Turing machine, is allowed to present itself as a keyboard and be recognised as such by the host OS, then the interface specification and protocols need a major reworking, ASAP. Furthermore, usb access control comes with a ‘Master Key’ feature that lets you unprotect your data and reset your password in case if you have forgotten your password. Click on the ‘Options’ button placed at the bottom left of the application screen to enable / disable the ‘Master Key’ feature. And I’ve never gotten mine to work with Linux. So I have to boot a virtual windows instance under Linux Just to use the key. Makes me more determined to never lose my phone.

Whilst this is overkill for most purposes there are some things such as KeyMat generation and managment where it is a sensible precaution. However for some people this is almost irresponsibly unsafe for they requirments and they will have all sorts of other mechanisms both physical and otherwise usb access control on top of this. Clearly aimed at the corporate market, the Padlock is still a reasonable choice for individuals who want its lightning-quick performance and double-edged security. The drive comes formatted for Windows but will work with Mac and Linux systems as well with a reformat.usb security token
