Seagate Introduces Conent Protection Technology in Hard Drives


Seagate is introducing a new security platform that delivers a simple, cost- effective way to deploy the high levels of security for computing systems, computer electronics and mobile devices by protecting data on the hard disc drive.

The platform, Seagate DriveTrust Technology, combines fully automated hardware-based security with a programming foundation that makes it easy to add security-based software applications for organization-wide encryption key management, multi-factor user authentication and other capabilities that help lock down digital information at rest.

The Seagate security platform automatically protects all drive data, not just selected partitions or files, at all times, and its security functions operate independently of the hard drive, preserving the hard drive's full performance.
DriveTrust Technology also offers these benefits:

- With DriveTrust Technology, secure hard drives are as easy to install and operate as standard drives. The security capabilities run transparently within the drive with no need for additional configuration. Set up can be as simple as creating a password for user authentication.

- Drive-level security requires no patches, updates or upgrades, eliminating many of the costs associated with traditional software solutions.

- Information stored on DriveTrust Technology drives can be instantly erased, making it easy to re-deploy and retire the drives and reducing the time and costs traditionally associated with overwriting and erasing disc data.

- DriveTrust Technology gives independent software vendors (ISVs) a platform for building stronger security applications. The DriveTrust Technology software developer kit (SDK) includes the documentation and tools necessary to build DriveTrust Technology-enabled applications such as access controls needed to manage encryption keys, passwords and other forms of authentication for large deployments.

Seagate DriveTrust - Securing Digital Content Across All Storage Devices Seagate is committed to an open, standards-based architecture that will enable the implementation of DriveTrust Technology across all storage devices. Toward that end, an independent laboratory is certifying DriveTrust algorithms including encryption (AES and TripleDES), public key (RSA), and authentication (SHA-1).

Seagate is also driving toward the security of digital content through its Trusted Computing Group (TCG), a standards body working to strengthen and simplify the deployment of computer security. Seagate is standardizing DriveTrust Technology's encryption, authentication tools and other security building blocks in a formal TCG storage specification that is scheduled for public release in early 2007. The TCG specification will enable manufacturers of hard drives and devices that use them to easily deploy security capabilities such as encryption and user authentication.

Dr. Robert Thibadeau, Seagate chief technologist, chairs TCG's Storage WorkGroup and serves on the TCG Board of Directors.

Seagate currently offers a hard disc drive family featuring DriveTrust Technology, the DB35 Series hard drives for digital video recorders (DVRs) and other digital entertainment devices. The DB35 Series hard drives are the first to enable manufacturers to lock a drive to the system, allowing service providers to deploy DVRs that protect recorded content from illicit copying and distribution if the 3.5-inch, 7200-RPM drive is removed.

In the first quarter of calendar 2007, Seagate plans to introduce Momentus 5400 FDE.2 for notebook computers, the first hard drive with full disc encryption. The 2.5-inch, 5,400-RPM drive's hardware-based full disc encryption delivers significantly stronger protection than traditional encryption approaches by securely performing all cryptographic operations and access control within the drive. For users, only a password is needed to self-authenticate for full drive access, while third- party enhancements enable thumbprint and smart card options for multi-factor self-authentication.
