Title
(EN) PORTABLE MEMORY STORAGE DEVICE WITH BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION SECURITY
(FR) DISPOSITIF PORTABLE DE STOCKAGE DE MEMOIRE DISPOSANT D'UN SYSTEME DE SECURITE D'IDENTIFICATION BIOMETRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A portable memory storage device is disclosed where access to information on the device is granted only upon proper biometric authentication of a user. The device includes a controller, a non- volatile memory which may be a flash memory, and a biometric scanner system for controlling access to the information within the non-volatile memory. Each of the controller, non volatile memory and biometric scanner system may be mounted in a base of the portable device, with the biometric system having an exposed surface on a top portion of the base for accepting biometric data such as a fingerprint. A cover is provided which includes a USB connector capable of mating within a USB port of the host device to establish communications between the portable and host devices. The cover also covers the exposed portion of the biometric scanner to protect the sensor when the portable memory storage device is not in use.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif de stockage de mémoire dans lequel l'accès aux informations du dispositif est autorisé uniquement après authentification biométrique correcte d'un utilisateur. Le dispositif comprend une unité de commande, une mémoire non volatile qui peut être une mémoire flash et un système de balayage biométrique qui permet de contrôler l'accès aux informations à l'intérieur de la mémoire non volatile. L'unité de commande, la mémoire non volatile ainsi que le système de balayage biométrique peuvent être montés sur une base du dispositif portable, le système biométrique ayant une surface exposée située sur une partie supérieure de la base à des fins d'acceptation de données biométriques telle qu'une empreinte digitale. Un couvercle comprend un connecteur USB pouvant être adapté au port USB du dispositif hôte afin d'établir des communications entre le dispositif portable et le dispositif hôte. Le couvercle recouvre également la partie exposée du scanneur pour protéger le capteur lorsque le dispositif de stockage de mémoire n'est pas utilisé.
