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.
