USB Protable Firewall

I would like to see a usb portable firewall. This would be very handy.

I believe this would be very unlikely to happen,

Can you explain ?

well yeah it will be definitly useful. .as many ppl r beginning to neglect the fact on how safe r their thumbdrives dis days

Unfortunately firewalls, by their nature, use kernel level drivers and these are loaded at boot time. As the USB drivers are loaded after the kernel, any firewall loaded off a USB drive could not utilise a kernel level driver and could not provide the same level of protection.

Similarly, if you consider your thumbdrives to be inherently insecure (which they are), why would you store your security app on it?
