Bio-protected USB stick boots Debian Linux is reporting on something new. It’s a bootable USB drive with an embedded fingerprint scanner. You get to carry your desktop wherever you go, plus it stays secure. It’s always nice to see companies creating innovative products.

The COS can boot x86 computers capable of booting from USB, or from CD-ROM thanks to a downloadable initrd kernel image.

I’m not sure where the fingerprint scanner goes with the CDROM version, I’m guessing you still need the USB stick.
