IEEE 1667 ("Standard Protocol for Authentication in Host Attachments of Transient Storage Devices") is a standard published and maintained by the IEEE that describes various methods for authenticating transient storage devices such as USB flash drives when they are inserted into a computer.

Since the protocol is universal, it means that will be platform independent of operating system.


On 25 November 2008 Microsoft announced that IEEE 1667 will be implemented on Windows 7.
