SEDs Feature Uncrackable SSD Encryption

Innodisk’s self-encrypting drives (SEDs) offer industrial-grade data protection using a hardware-based encryption mechanism located in the controller. Data is next to uncrackable and will have zero impact on CPU loading. To simplify the process of implementing these devices, Innodisk offers iOpal, an intuitive software for easy SED management.

 

The SEDs use 256-bit AES encryption, which is the standard adopted by the US government. An internal AES-engine encrypts all data going into the device, meaning that data read directly from the NAND flash will be completely scrambled and unintelligible.

TCG Opal 2.0 is set of specifications for SED management that clearly defines how to create different ranges for different users, allowing for a system where data is shared on a strictly need-to-know basis.

 

 

iOpal molds the detailed specifications of TCG Opal 2.0 into a simple and user-friendly application. It comprises several key features such as data storage management, different user authorizations, and pre-boot authentication. iOpal and SEDs are viable for mission-critical and heavy-loading environments, such as aerospace and server applications. The software is compatible with select form factors in the 3MG2-P, 3SE2-P, and 3MR2-P SSD series. For more details, visit Innodisk.
