The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) and NVM Express have collaborated on a whitepaper. The Opal “Family” of specifications published by the TCG provides a scalable infrastructure for managing encryption of user data in a Storage Device, as well as extensibility to enable features beyond “data at rest protection”.
This joint whitepaper describes the Trusted Computing Group Storage Work Group; the Opal, Opalite, and Pyrite specifications for managing encryption of user data; drawbacks of alternatives to the Opal family of specs; and the areas where NVMe Work Group and TCG Work Group can collaborate to provide enhanced solutions that combine the benefits of the two specification.
Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
