Abstract: 

As Cybersecurity shifts from the “best practice” environment to being mandated by regulations and prioritized by the high costs for data breaches, IT groups and data center operators are facing multiple challenges. One of these challenges is how to address the security of a mix of legacy storage devices, unencrypted devices, encrypted devices, new technology storage and eDrives in a single environment. Yet another challenge is how to construct a robust, trusted identity-based authentication (or role-based authentication or as a matter of coming the two) to fend off malware and Trojan infection. A system solution that can simplify the security management of mixed drives with high valued data content will be presented. The solution has at least one smart hardware interface controller that performs all security features internally while offers in-line cryptographic performance without degrading data rate.
