Abstract: 

Ongoing changes in computing architectures, a continued trend toward virtualization (Software Defined Storage, SaaS, PaaS, etc.), and recent questions about the security of the data on drives has led to major architectural changes in both the interface and internal implementation of secure storage devices. This presentation looks into the drivers of these changes, including recent reports of drive vulnerabilities, and describe the changes currently being driven into storage standards and devices. In particular, the parallel between embedded security in storage and IoT devices is examined to show how these technologies are beginning to converge.
