Criptografia de hardware AES 256 bit SSD 540s 480Gb

Jump to solution

Senhores,

Possuo uma unidade Intel SSD 540s de 480Gb, utilizo a mesma em um notebook Dell Vostro 3460 e funciona perfeitamente com dual boot com Windows 10 e Ubuntu. Gostaria de saber como funciona a criptogtrafia por hardware da mesma, pois em caso de roubo ou perda do meu notebook, como faria com os dados gravados na unidade SSD? eu liguei somente o SSD em outro PC e ele abre normalmente como se nada fosse encriptado!!!

Marcos_Andrade,

 

 

According to our translator, you need to know how exactly the encryption on this drive works.

 

First of all, we would like to let you know the drive comes with AES 256-bit self encryption, that being said, you need to setup the password for it so no one can access your drive, even if it is plugged as a secondary drive.

 

 

This feature is always enabled and the data is encrypted and decrypted using a key, however, this is transparent to the the user unless you set a password (for example using ATA password security in the BIOS), then the password will be needed to decrypt the encryption key and access the drive. This way, it would be virtually impossible to read the data unless you have the security password.

 

 

Hope this information works, if you have any other question please let us know.

Marcos_Andrade,

 

 

About the setup of the password in order to have the encryption enabled, this feature needs to be setup in the BIOS of each motherboard, for that you need to enter the BIOS screen and look for the security option, where you need to setup the master password.

 

 

Hope this information helps.

Mas então a encriptação na verdade é uma função da motherboard e não do SSD ? se eu retirar esse SSD do notebook e tentar acessar os dados vai me pedir uma senha, mas e se alguém roubar meu notebook, em que momento a senha é solicitada?

Na descrição do SSD, o mesmo diz que tem encriptação por hardware, mas isso é um processo feito pela motherboard e não pelo SSD ??!!!

Marcos_Andrade,

 

 

If you remove the SSD and put it in a different system, the drive will be locked with the password and will not let you access the information. Basically you setup the password from BIOS, so the self-encryption can be activated in the actual controller of the SSD, therefore there is no way to access the drive unless you have the master password.
