LexarLexar revealed plans to incorporate encryption technology into its Pro CompactFlash and, in conjunction with technology-compatible digital cameras, will provide users with a secure digital media solution. Professionals photographers and other security conscious users worldwide will have added confidence knowing that access to stored images and information is protected by a high-end encryption code technology. Central to this unique security solution is an easy-to-use software tool for establishing security settings on the memory card and corresponding digital camera. Digital content stored on the memory card can only be accessed via the digital camera(s) with the corresponding encryption key or via a PC with a valid username and password.
Lexar unveils Pro Cards with Encryption TechnologyThis unique security system utilizing the memory card and the camera offers a secure digital imaging solution. "This is an excellent solution for keeping stored images and information secure," said John Omvik, Director of Professional Product Marketing. "Professional photographers working with highly secure or classified content can confidently take pictures knowing that they are protected from unauthorized access. This is appealing to those in industries such as insurance, law enforcement, medicine, security and government, as well as many others who want their valuable and confidential data protected well beyond what is offered today."

Eager to provide their customers with a way to safeguard their images, Nikon will be the first camera company to incorporate Lexar's technology into a digital camera. Nikon is incorporating the new security technology into the Nikon D2X. "The most valuable asset of our customers is the content they capture at each and every photo-shoot," said Kazuyuki Kazami, General Manager of Marketing, Nikon Corporation. "Incorporating Lexar's technology into our new digital camera is an easy way for us to help professionals concentrate on doing what they do best - taking pictures. They needn't worry about having exclusive images fall into unwanted hands or unwillingly allowing others to access their images before the appropriate time," he added.

The system's administrative tool will enable the highest level of security, without sacrificing any camera performance. Developed by Lexar, the new security solution is based on a 160 bit encryption technology and uses SHA-1 (Secure Hash Algorithm), a standard approved by the NSIT (National Institute of Standards and Technology.) 160-bit encryption technology is among the most effective and widely accepted security solutions available.

Available to photo-specialty stores and through value added resellers, the technology will be available in Q4 of 2004.
