Product Description

CustomLoc Smart Security is a software and hardware package that is designed to provide logon security for a personal computer. CustomLoc Smart Security provides protection through the 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 logon process consists of a user entering their user id and a password. The PC then requests the insertion of a Smart Security card into the Smart Security card reader to validate the user id and password. 

CUSTOM MENU Secure also provides discretionary access control, protection against object reuse, boot protection, keyboard locking and some system integrity. User access (write, read or none) to files, directories and drives is specified by the central administrator and can be set either individually or by group. Access to a DOS prompt (and therefore Windows) can also be restricted allowing users to only run programs (specified by the central administrator) from the hierarchical menu system. 

Data encryption is performed on the hard drive by a proprietary algorithm. The encryption key is stored on the user's Smart Security card, thus providing an additional level of encryption security.

These products have only had cryptographic functionality evaluated and no assurance is given regarding any other mechanisms present in the product.
