Storage Security has become an important aspect in an enterprise due to the cost incurred due to data loss/theft. Trusted Computing Group (TCG) has defined a data-at-rest security standard for peripheral devices including storage disks. This presentation explains a product development accelerator that can help in reducing the cycle time in development of TCG enabled disks and ISV application’s by using test qualifiers and simulators. A trusted peripheral (TPer) simulator helps ISV to develop applications that are compliant to TCG specification even in the absence of a storage device that is compliant to TCG. Similarly, a TPer qualifier quickens the testing of TCG compliant disk. This presentation explains the high level approach, the implementation details in Linux, interface with test automation framework and features of TCG storage specification that have been implemented.
