Data Security Features in the Intel® SSD 520 Series: Tech Brief

As solid-state drives become the storage of choice for PCs worldwide, professionals and consumers are requiring enhanced security features to help protect their data. Today’s security environment requires multiple tiers of protection. While one tier helps protect against malicious software attacks, another tier addresses the physical protection of stored data in the event that a PC is lost or stolen.

Intel continues to support enhanced security features in its latest generation of solid-state drives (SSD). This technology brief describes how the Intel® SSD 520 Series uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and ATA drive password to help protect a user’s data.

Encryption in the Intel SSD 520 Series
Encryption converts data to an unintelligible form. The only way to decrypt the data to its original form is by the use of a special key.

The Intel SSD 520 Series offers this encryption/decryption feature according to the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The AES encryption standard, defined in the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publication 197, is widely accepted and used in the PC industry for encryption of user data.

Physical security layer of protection
AES implementation in the Intel SSD 520 Series provides a hardware-based mechanism for encryption and decryption of user data without performance impact.

Encryption is only as good as the key used for the encrypting. The key is a packet of information that is used in the encryption process to encode/decode the data. If a person does not have this key, then the data cannot be deciphered and understood. The stronger the key, the more difficult it is for an attacker to break the key and decode the data. The AES implementation in the Intel SSD 520 Series drive uses a 128-bit key.
