   AFIK there's no requirement for or against removeable drives or media. I
do know that a lot of security managers don't like machines that have
removeable drives or media because even well intentioned employees may be
tempted to copy their data/program and take it and use it on another
machine that may not be tempest secure. FWIW that's the claim of the
defense in the trial of the US scientist that is currently charged with
selling nuclear secrets to the Chinese. i.e. he only copied the data to use
it on another computer (outside the secure area) and that he did not sell
it to the chinese.
