Locking Down Your Data with Cipher Shield External Hard Drive Encryption

Ports

We found all of the connections on the back side: the USB port is located next to the one for the power supply, and the one that the Cipher Key fits into is just a bit to the right. In order to keep development costs down, the manufacturer did not develop its own interface, so it fell back on FireWire (1394a).

Accessories Included

Included in the package are a full range switching DC adapter (which is only necessary if the older USB 1.1 port is used), the Cipher Shield itself, a 1.80m USB cable, a user manual in English and the two Cipher Keys.
