By the way one can make an encrypted usbkey - I randomised a usbkey along
the lines that mail-lists described, and made a luks encypted file system on
it - and once done then plugging it in to F9 or F10 it asks for the
passphrase (luks) and then mounts it - you then just use it like any other
usbkey and umount it as normal - but if it does get lost it would be near
impossible for someone to get at the contents! Anyone dealing with
transferring sensitive data on a usbkey would be well advised to use this
kind of technique - it would certainly reduce the risk in the classic
publicised cases of "25 million account details lost when usbkey owned by
bank manager is left on train seat" stories!
