Pen drive with fingerprint security with Linux

I'm looking for a 2 to 4 gig usb flash drive with fingerprint authentication. The problem i am running into is not finding one. What i want to do is install linux /freebsd (prefer bsd) on one partition of the drive and have another partition to host files that windows can read. the drive must have a high transfer rate. if i were to just use it for linux i could encrypt it and be done with it but i want a jack of all trades.

I have used live cds and pen drives on corperate computers and at internet cafes to keep my private surfing, comments, and passwords safe from my job and software keyloggers. I know that there are hardware loggers, but i don't go to my banking sites at internet cafes.

Any gurus have some advice.

I wanted to change the "twist part of the thread title to linux. how be it done?

Aliens general, everything about them is alien!

Re: Pen drive with fingerprint security with Linux

I have no idea.

But I do know you should probably buy 9 of them - 3 separate raid 5 sets, and match to different fingers. Then rotate one to offsite secure, one on your person in case of extraction, and one for general use.

I mean, if you want to cover most of your bases.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
