Agencies are much more mobile now. But sometimes that mobility makes it harder to work on a secure government computer. Now the researchers over at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base have a solution.

Rich Kutter is with the Lightweight Portable Security Team that developed the disk.

Kutter is Tom Temin's guest on Federal Security Spotlight.
