Enforcement Driver Requirements and Guide

To validate that a USB was indeed scanned, a small file is placed onto the USB. This is a cryptographically signed watermark designed to assist the enforcement driver in deciding whether or not to mount a USB.

Driver Specification:

The ICSP driver can be installed on a variety of operating systems to prevent unscanned USBs from being used. It is an MSI installer package for 32/64-bit OS platforms in the size range of 2Mb, which should be installed on all Windows-based critical systems. It can also be installed on stand-alone systems, and deployed in enterprises through standard deployment (group policy) processes as well. The Following registry entries are added:

a) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ndevsec
b) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\nspsvc
c) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Symantec\ICS Protection (*)
