Securing Floopy Disk - Design strategy

Discussion in 'Security Software' started by Murali Krishna. Siruvuru, Jun 24, 2005.

  1. Appreciate if someone can guide me, what is the exact mechanism & technology
    used for locking floppy disk (locking using software), so that the contents
    can be viewed but cannot be copied or imaged.

  2. That is not possible. There are ways to manage files that a user can copy to
    other media or print but a user could use a digital camera to copy content
    from a display screen. Using the print screen keyboard key may also be able
    to bypass copy to media/print restrictions. The link below to Windows
    Rights Management may be of interest and there is a newsgroup dedicated to
    such. --- Steve
