Hard Drive Encryption Specification
There’s a new hard drive encryption standard, which will make it easier for manufacturers to build encryption into drives.
Honestly, I don’t think this is really needed. I use PGP Disk, and I haven’t noticed any slowdown due to having encryption done in software. And I worry about yet another standard with its inevitable flaws and security vulnerabilities.
EDITED TO ADD (2/13): Perceptive comment about how the real benefit is regulatory compliance.
