CustomLoc PC card is a software and hardware package that is designed to provide security for a notebook computer. CustomLoc PC card provides protection through encryption of the hard drive, with users being required to go through a login process before access to (and decryption of) data on the drive is allowed. The login process is provided by CUSTOM MENU Secure which also manages discretionary access control, protection against object reuse, boot protection, keyboard locking and some system integrity.
Data encryption is performed on the hard drive and on a file-by-file basis by a proprietary algorithm. The file encryption employs a key chosen by the user. The file encryption option must be used if sensitive classified data is to be protected adequately.
CustomLoc PC card can be run across a network; however the evaluation was conducted on a stand-alone notebook computer.
