Description
The IBM LTO Generation 5 Encrypting Tape Drive provides AES-GCM encryption of customer data recorded to tape. Both encryption and compression are implemented in the hardware for optimum performance. Two different host interface types of the LTO Generation 5 "brick" unit are FIPS certified as a multi-chip, standalone cryptographic module. In customer operation the "brick" unit may be embedded in bridge box or in a canister package for operation in a library.
FIPS Algorithms
AES Certs. #1530, #1531 and #1532
RNG Cert. #825
RSA Cert. #744
SHS Cert. #1361
Other Algorithms
AES (Cert. #1530, key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides 256-bits of encryption strength); RSA (key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength)
