New memory stick 'could boost password security'31 May 2011 15:10:07
A new USB memory stick device could help to improve people's standards of password security, it has been suggested.
Cambridge News has reported that a product called the sCrib has been developed by experts at the city's Smart Architects, with key logging among the threats it is hoped the product could potentially address.
Commenting on the new innovation, designer Dr Dan Cvrcek noted that password security can be something of a problem for certain UK firms.
He told the news provider: "The feedback we have had from firms has been very positive, but we would like to get more people to try out the device to help us make enhancements."
When it comes to the use of USB technology, Kingston Digital also released details of its new DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation product earlier in the month.
This will now be the company's quickest USB flash drive, Kingston additionally revealed.
