    The US National Security Agency (NSA) and Treasure Department have expressed interest in a secure storage device that hard drive manufacturer Seagate is developing. Seagate spokesperson Michael Hall told vnunet.com that the company has met with the two US government agencies over its Momentus 5400 FDE technology. He said that the agencies are investigating the device's implications on their ability to fight organised crime, but stressed that so far they are only gathering information.
