Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman is an ambiguous key procedure convention that acknowledges two gatherings, each having an elliptic bend public-private key match, to make a common mystery over an uncertain channel.
Unlike any competing USB encryption drive, the Hydra PC reconstitutes a Master Key Encryption Key at logon using a FIPS-approved Key Derivation Function which utilizes, at a minimum, an Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) public/private key pair unique to the device and a random, secret 256-bit "salt" value together with a SHA-256 hash of the user's password.
