USB Self-Encrypting Drive for Archive Data

Archives of data come in many forms.  Some forms are just for storage in a cave somewhere.  Others are for sharing archive data sets for specialized digital libraries.  Many times, if not most times, the owner of the data set is happy to let you see it, but certainly doesn't want the data set to come back corrupted or modified in any way.    The Drive Trust Alliance has introduced an Archive Self-Encrypting Drive precisely for people and organizations that want to share large data sets, but share privately, and securely.  Even if they have the option to share in the cloud, they may not trust the cloud supplier to keep the datasets completely private and viewable only by people they do trust.

This is where the DTA Self-Encrypting USB Drive for Archives comes in.  We supply a simple to use and powerfully secure solution.  Most important, because the drive use the international standard Opal Self-Encrypting Drive specification, and nothing else, the archivist need never worry that he cannot get at the encrypting data, even if we go away.  Our open source code also provides a command line interface that lets anybody who knows how to unlock the drive read or read and write the contents.

These drives all accept one drive Administrator who can then create up to 8 Users each with their own unlock key.  Most importantly, the Administrator can make sure that the Users can only read the data off the drive.  The Users cannot write or otherwise modify the data sets.  Since the Administrator is the only one who can create the User passwords, he can insure that all the passwords are good and strong and not have to rely on users to "be good."
