The first thing I would do, is google for it. No I don't know the answer to your question, but do you realize what an amazing tool you have at your fingertips in Google? Surely if you can type a question here you can run a search also :)

Hi. The problem is this:
if you make the software in java, how you access keyboard and mouse when java itself runs in a machine. Plus, in which OS do you want to do this? In newest Vista from Microsoft... you cannot block mouse or keyboard... only if you run a service with a special program. That means you need to make a special windows loader.

The simplest mode to make this running is making a full disk encryption because security is the main issue with pendrives. They are not created for security systems, although some models have incorporated encryption. Is the simplest (and can be done in java). You need to create an encrypted partition or file systems, along with a program who reads files and directories. I have done this few years ago in C++, encrypting image files to be written in cd. Later, when you accessed the cd, you need key to see image files.
