Description
The IBM LTO Generation 6 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. Four different host interface types of the LTO Generation 6 "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. #2692, #2693 and #2694
DRBG Cert. #440
RSA Cert. #1392
SHS Cert. #2261
Other Algorithms
AES (Cert. #2694, key wrapping); RSA (key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength)
