Description
The IBM® Corporation LTO Generation 7 and Generation 8 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. Six different host interface types of the LTO Generation 7 "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.
