Seagate Self Encrypting Drive in PC with TCG complaint hardware
Posted on 2013-12-06
I have fairly new HP PCs (HP Small Form Factor 8100's) that work fine with bit locker.
But to speed things up, I would like to use a self encrypting SATA hard drive, like the Seagate ST500NM0031.
The specs say it requires a TCG-compliant host. If my computer can do full bit locker with its v1.2 TPM, does that mean it will support a SATA SED?
I can't find anything in HP specs that address this.
If not, anyone know of a PC hard drive controller that will support these SATA SED drives. I've searched and can't find one.
