RFID authentication more secure than hard drive encryption?

July 19th, 2009 | Tags: , ,

When looking for a secure hard drive last week I came across a new type of portable storage, Freecom have an encrypted RFID swide-card that unlocks access to your data. The idea sounds great, I could have two cards one assigned to myself and another to a trusted 3rd party, one snag is that the drive itself is NOT encrypted. Who is to say that by removing the drive from its caddy and interfacin it with a computer these security measures would be bypassed?

Hrmmm….
