    Lexar JumpDrive SAFE S3000 drives utilize the most innovative and secure smart card technology trusted by billions of people and thousands of companies and government agencies worldwide in mobile phones, bank cards, and government-issued passports. The smart card provides tamper-proof storage of security information, management of all security computations, and secure authentication. The mandatory user authentication process blocks unauthorized access to the drives, while the smart card protects data from the various hardware and software attacks that can plague unprotected drives.

    The JumpDrive SAFE S3000 FIPS is available in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB, and the JumpDrive SAFE S3000 is available in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB.

    $269.99 for 8 gigs of extremely protected storage.

    I think I should get me one of these. Hate it when people rob me of all the passports I carry around on my usb drives.

    An alternative is the IronKey which also has FIPS-140-2 Level 3 protection. It's been longer on the market and is cheaper than the Lexar.

    I use a couple of them for corporate sensitive data.
