MS offers wireless keyboard with 128-bit AES encryption

128-bit security foils keystroke monitoring

Microsoft will be debuting its Wireless Desktop 2000, a wireless keyboard that transmits its keystrokes using AES 128-bit encryption, early next month. The keyboard is compatible with both Macs and Windows computers and is paired with the Wireless Mouse 2000 for a matched look. The company says its AES 128-bit encryption is the same standard used by the U.S. government to help secure its wireless connections.

The encryption is designed to foil any attempt to intercept and decipher keystrokes coming from a wireless keyboard, giving users the option to use a wireless keyboard for convenience even when dealing with sensitive information such as passwords or credit card numbers. Although the keyboard is compatible with Macs, it offers Taskbar Favorites for Windows 7 users, allowing them to easily switch between applications.

Both the keyboard and mouse also sport features aimed at user comfort. The keyboard includes a pillow-textured palm rest, while the mouse offers an ambidextrous design. The mouse is paired to the keyboard using BlueTrack technology, which the company says ensures smooth tracking on almost any surface (apart from clear glass or mirrored surfaces).

The unit will be available wherever Microsoft keyboards are sold, and will retail for $40.
