Please announce here

Then we can say if we want to help or not. We have other things to do as well.
Plus a backlog of at least 30 apps waiting to be released.

Application

Well I want to develop a basic password protection application. I would like some basic guidance on how that is done.

Thanks

Try contacting Yadabyte

They have made one already.

Which ones?

Are you referring to KeyPASS or Truecrypt? - These do NOT control access to the USB drive with password.

Or are you referring to something else?

Thanks

Yadabyte Password

yadabyte.com
So, controlling the USB with password? Sounds interesting but not possible methinks.
Not with NSIS anyway. I'd love to help you, but too much stuff. Maybe if you can get an alpha done, I might be interested. Hmmm... We could use that in Libertà. Try and see if it can get done. At least get some methods. Then you email me.

TrueCyrpt DOES

You create a virtual drive and place ALL your files within it. Then, noone can access your files, etc, without a password to mount that virtual drive.

Putting a password to prevent actually accessing the USB drive itself would require reprogramming the firmware in the USB key. And that wouldn't really be secure since it wouldn't actually encrypt your data... so an enterprising techie could still access that "secured" partition on the key.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

...well, technically, nothing is stopping the reprogrammed firmware from also encrypting the data on-the-fly. I believe this is how JumpDrive Secures and Sony MicroVaults do it. Unfortunately, you still need special software to take advantage of it, since the stock Mass Storage Device driver doesn't support the functionality.
