University Researchers Discover Security Flaws In Widely Used Data Storage Devices

It has been reported that researchers at Radboud University in the Netherlands have today released a report detailing their discovery that widely used data storage devices with self-encrypting drives do not provide the expected level of data protection.

Gary McGraw, Vice President of Security Technology at Synopsys:

“Software design is difficult, especially when it comes to security.  Hardware security design suffers from many of the very same issues.  This design flaw with SSDs percolates up into common disk encryption schemes, showing that in some cases, the flip of a bit means everything.  Our only hope is better security engineering and architecture analysis during system design and implementation.”
