Abstract

USBs are the most common devices for data sharing and transferring either for personal day to day use or at the organizational level. Its usage is increasing exponentially despite the data breaches occurring due to the noncompliance of security measurements. Consumers are at risk when sensitive data is stored on unsecured USBs. The consequences of losing drives (or when picked up by unauthorized persons) loaded with sensitive information can be significant, including the loss of customer data, financial information, business plans and other confidential/sensitive information, risk of reputation damage. Apropos, this problem of keeping the data confidential from unauthorized users need to be addressed immediately. Therefore, in this paper we present an indigenous solution for this problem which can easily be used by general users and sensitive organizations (strategic, banks, academia, law enforcement, armed forces, telco’s and many others) to overcome the above stated confidentiality problem. Our proposed Smart Secure USB (SSU-256), will serve as secure channel for both data storage and transfer.
