Victorinox Swiss Army Knife now also “un-hackable” USB memory
Designed by the technology specialist Martin Kuster for Victorinox with the goal of providing the “most secure” memory stick of our times, the USB stick has been equipped with several security measures ranging from the AES256 technology and fingerprint identification we are familiar with to the Victorinox patented MKI’s Schnuffi Platform Single Chip Technology with no external and accessible lines between the different coding/security steps unlike in the multi-chip solutions, according to the company. However, the measure that would attract the most attention would probably be the self-destruction function that burns the CPU and memory chip in the case of any attempt to open it.
Available in three different versions as 8GB-16GB-32GB with the price range of £50 – £180.
P.S. It seems to have taken its first challenge from a group of professional hackers on the day it was launched to break it in two hours to win the prize of £100,000 that Victorinox offered but apparently they did not succeed.
