IronKey™ Basic S1000 is a USB (Universal Serial Bus) 3.0, portable flash drive with built-in password security
and data encryption. IronKey Basic S1000 is designed to be the world’s most secure USB flash drive. Now you
can safely carry your files and data with you wherever you go.
Figure 1: S1000 device
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT THAN A REGULAR FLASH DRIVE?
FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification
IronKey Basic S1000 has FIPS certification so you can feel confident that you’re complying with regulatory
requirements.
Hardware Encryption
Inside your device is the IronKey Cryptochip, which protects your data to the same level as highly classified
government information. This security technology is always on and cannot be disabled.
Password-Protected
To access your secure data, you unlock the device with a password using the Unlocker software that is carried
on the device. Do not share your password with anyone. That way, even if your device is lost or stolen, no one
else can access your data.
Self-Destruct Sequence
If the Cryptochip detects physical tampering, or if ten incorrect password attempts have been entered, it
initiates a permanent self-destruct sequence that securely erases all onboard data (unless you set your device
to reset)—so remember your password.
E
Simple Device Management
Your device includes the IronKey Control Panel, a program for accessing your files, managing your device and
editing your preferences, changing your device password, and safely locking your device.
Waterproof and Tamper-Resistant
Designed to survive the extremes, the rugged metal encasing is injected with an epoxy compound that makes
it not only tamper-resistant, but waterproof to military specifications (MIL-STD-810F).
WHAT SYSTEMS CAN I USE IT ON?
• Windows® 10
• Windows® 8/8.1
• Windows® 7 (SP1)
• Windows® Vista (SP2)
• Mac OS® X (10.9.x - 10.11.x)
• Linux (2.6+)
Some applications are available only on specific systems:
Windows Only
• Virtual Keyboard (English only)
Mac Only
• Auto-Launch Assistant
HOW SECURE IS IT?
The IronKey Basic S1000 has been designed from the ground up with security in mind. A combination of
advanced security technologies are used to ensure that only you can access your data. Additionally, it has
been designed to be physically secure, to prevent hardware-level attacks and tampering, as well as to make
the device rugged and long-lasting.
The IronKey Cryptochip is hardened against physical attacks such as power attacks and bus sniffing. It is
physically impossible to tamper with its protected data or reset the password counter. If the Cryptochip
detects a physical attack, it destroys the Cryptochip, making the stored encrypted files inaccessible.
We strive to be very open about the security architecture and technology that we use in designing and
building this product. We use established cryptographic algorithms, we develop threat models, and we
perform security analyses (internal and third party) of our systems all the way through design, development
and deployment.
Device Security
Data Encryption Keys
• AES key generated by on-board Random Number Generator
• AES key generated at initialization time and encrypted with hash of user password
• No backdoors: AES key cannot be decrypted without the user password
• AES key never leaves the hardware and is not stored in NAND flash
E
Data Protection
• Secure volume does not mount until the password is verified in hardware
• Password try-counter implemented in tamper-resistant hardware
• Once the password try-count is exceeded, by default, the device will be reset and all data will be
erased. Resetting a device puts the device back to its original factory state. If you disable the device
reset setting in the Control Panel, the device will self-destruct when the password try-count is
exceeded.
• Sensitive data and settings are stored in hardware
Application Security
Device Password Protection
• USB command channel encryption to protect device communications
• Password-in-memory protection to protect against cold-boot and other attacks
• Virtual Keyboard to protect against keyloggers and screenloggers
The device password is hashed using salted SHA-256 before being transmitted to the device firmware over a
secure USB channel. It is stored in an extremely inaccessible location in the protected Cryptochip hardware.
The hashed password is validated in hardware (there is no ―getPassword‖ function that can retrieve the hashed
password). Only after the password is validated, is the AES key available for encryption. The password trycounter is also implemented in hardware to prevent memory rewind attacks.

secure applications and files. Exceeding the number of incorrect password attempts will, by default, reset the
device. If you disabled this setting, the device will self-destruct and you will lose all on-board data.
Note: As a security precaution, you must unplug and reinsert the device after every three failed password
attempts.
Unlocking in Read-Only Mode
You can unlock your device in a read-only state so that files cannot be edited on your secure drive. For
example, when using an untrusted or unknown computer, unlocking your device in Read-Only Mode will
prevent any malware on that computer from infecting your device or modifying your files.
When working in this mode, the IronKey Control Panel will display the text ―Read-Only Mode‖. In this mode,
you cannot perform any operations that involve modifying files on the device. For example, you cannot
reformat the device, restore applications or edit the Applications list, or edit files on the drive.

E
Locking the device
Lock your device when you are not using it to prevent unwanted access to your secure files on the drive. You
can manually lock the device or you can set the device to automatically lock after a specified period of
inactivity.
By default, to prevent potential file corruption, your device will not lock if applications or files on the drive are
open. Close any open applications or files before locking the device.
Caution: If you configure auto-lock to force the device to lock, any open files may lose changes or become
corrupt as a result of the forced lock operation. Unplugging the device while it is unlocked may also result in
loss or corruption of data on the device.
If your files have become corrupt from a forced lock procedure or from unplugging the device before locking,
you might be able to recover the files by running CHKDSK and using data recovery software.
To manually lock the device
•
Click the Lock button in the bottom left of the Control Panel to safely lock your device.

You can also use the Virtual Keyboard in conjunction with the actual keyboard, so that you type some
characters and click some characters.
Tip: Click the Randomize button to arrange the keys in a random manner. This helps protect against
screenloggers.
Note: When you click a key in the Virtual Keyboard, all of the keys briefly go blank. This feature prevents
screenloggers from capturing what you clicked. To disable this feature, click the icon (beside the Exit
button) and choose Disable screenlogger protection.
E
Accessing my device if I forget my password
There are no back doors to an IronKey Basic device. In other words, there is no way to unlock it if you do not
have the correct password.
• If you have enabled device reset, you can reset the device back to its pre-setup state; however, all
on-board data will be permanently lost.
• If you have not enabled device reset, you have only 10 password attempts before the device will permanently self-destruct. You will not be able to use the device again and your data will be erased.
ACCESSING MY SECURE FILES
After unlocking the device, you can access your secure files. Since the device has a built-in Cryptochip, files are
automatically encrypted and decrypted ―on-the-fly‖ when you save or open a file on the drive. This technology
gives you the convenience of working as you normally would with a regular flash drive, while providing strong,
―always-on‖ security.
To access my secure files
1.
Click the Files
button on menu bar of the IronKey Control Panel.
• Windows: Opens Windows Explorer to the IronKey Secure Files drive.
• Mac: Opens Finder to the IronKey USB drive.
2.
Do one of the following:
• To open a file, double-click the file on the IronKey Secure Files drive (IronKey USB drive for Mac).
• To save a file, drag the file from your computer to the IronKey Secure Files drive (IronKey USB drive
for Mac).
Tip: You can also access your files by right-clicking the IronKey icon on the Windows taskbar and clicking
Secure Files.
UPGRADING MY DEVICE FROM BASIC TO ENTERPRISE
If notified by your system administrator, you can upgrade your IronKey Basic device to an Enterprise device.
Enterprise devices are managed by an IronKey Enterprise Management System. When you upgrade your
device, you will be required to activate it using an activation code provided by your administrator. An Internet
connection is required to complete this process. See the IronKey Enterprise User Guide on your device for
information about Enterprise features.
Important: Only start the upgrade process if your system administrator has asked you to activate your device
with IronKey Enterprise.
To upgrade from Basic to Enterprise
1.
When you receive the Activation Code from your system administrator, start the IronKey Control Panel
and click the Settings
button.
2.
In the left sidebar, click Tools and then click Upgrade to Enterprise.
3.
Paste the Activation Code in the Enterprise Activation text box (Windows and Mac systems only).
4.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
5.
Additional applications may be installed on your device based on the device policy settings chosen by
your system administrator. You may also be required to change your password so that it conforms to the
password security policy set for Enterprise devices in your organization.
E
REFORMATTING MY DEVICE
Reformatting the secure volume will erase all your files and your Application List, but it will not erase your
device password and settings.
Important: Before you reformat the device, back up your secure volume to a separate location (for example, to
cloud storage or your computer).
To reformat a device
1.
Unlock your device and click the Settings
button on the menu bar of the IronKey Control Panel.
2.
Click Tools on the left sidebar.
3.
Under Device Health, click Reformat Secure Volume.
USING MY DEVICE ON LINUX
You can set up and use your device on several distributions of Linux (x86 systems only with kernel version 2.6
or higher).
Setting up the device on Linux
1.
Plug it into your computer’s USB port and start the Unlocker by running the ironkey.exe program from the
linux folder on the device.
The device mounts as a drive.
2.
Accept the license agreement. Press Q (Quit) to exit or press Y (Yes) to agree to the terms.
3.
Create a device password.
Your password is case-sensitive and must be at least 4 characters long.
4.
Enable Device Reset if you want the device to reset instead of self-destructing if you exceed the number
of password attempts allowed. A device reset operation erases all on-board data, but unlike self-destruct,
does not render the device unusable.
5.
The device initializes. During this process, it generates the AES encryption key, and creates the file system
for the secure volume.
When this process is complete, your device is ready for use.
Using the Unlocker
Use the Unlocker for Linux to access your files and change your device password on Linux. Depending on your
Linux distribution, you may need root privileges to use the program ―ironkey.exe‖ found in the Linux folder
of the mounted public volume. If you have only one IronKey device attached to the system, run the program
from a command shell with no arguments (for example, ironkey.exe). If you have multiple devices, you must
specify which one you want to unlock.
Note: ironkey.exe only unlocks the secure volume; it must then be mounted. Many modern Linux
distributions do this automatically; if not, run the mount program from the command line, using the device
name printed by ironkey.exe.
To change the password of the device named “devicename,” enter:
ironkey.exe --changepwd [devicename]
To unlock the device in Read-Only Mode, enter:
ironkey.exe --readonly When prompted, type your password.
E
To unlock the device, enter:
ironkey.exe --unlock When prompted, type your password.
To lock the device, you must either unmount and physically remove (unplug) it, or else run:
ironkey.exe --lock
Simply unmounting the device does not automatically lock the secure volume.
To lock the device when more than one device is in use, enter:
ironkey.exe --lock [devicename] where devicename is the name of the device you want to lock.
Please note the following important details for using your device on Linux:
1.
Kernel Version must be 2.6 or higher
If you compile your own kernel, you must include the following in it:
• DeviceDrivers->SCSIDeviceSupport-><*>SCSICDROMSupport
• DeviceDrivers-><*> Support for Host-side USB
• DeviceDrivers-><*> USB device filesystem
• DeviceDrivers-><*> EHCI HCD (USB 2.0) support
• DeviceDrivers-><*> UHCI HCD (most Intel and VIA) support
• DeviceDrivers-><*> USB Mass Storage Support
The kernels that are included by default in most major distributions already have these features, so if you are
using the default kernel that comes with a supported distribution you do not need to take any other action.
Also, on 64-bit Linux systems the 32-bit libraries must be installed in order to run the ironkey.exe program.
Consult the distribution’s help resources for assistance and more information.
2.
Mounting problems
• Make sure you have permissions to mount external SCSI and USB devices
• Some distributions do not mount automatically and require the following command to be run:
mount /dev/<name of the device> /media/<mounted device name>
• The name of the mounted device varies depending on the distribution. The names of the devices
can be discovered by running:
ironkey.exe --show
3.
Permissions
• You must have permissions to mount external/usb/devices.
• You must have permissions to run an executable file from the public volume in order to launch the
Unlocker.
• You might need root user permissions.
See the linux folder on the device’s public volume for information about how to set up permissions to allow
non-root users to access their devices. All of these methods require that the system administrator take (one
time) action to enable access; after that, ordinary users can lock and unlock, and change passwords on any
devices they plug in.
4.
Supported distributions
E
Not all distributions of Linux are supported. Please visit http://support.ironkey.com for the latest list of
supported distributions.
5.
The IronKey Unlocker for Linux only supports x86 systems at this time.
