NIST-certified, rugged SSD provides AES encryption and durability

With national and technological security as vital concerns, ’s NIST-certified TRRUST-Stor SSD aims to help government and military officials rest (at least a little bit) easier. Having recently achieved National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification for its hardware-implemented, 256-bit key AES encryption utilizing an XTS block cipher mode, the TRRUST-Stor SSD also works in tandem with other sanitization protocols and the company’s TRRUST-Purge technology, which only needs less than 30 milliseconds for its data to become forensically unrecoverable when purge is activated.

The key to TRRUST-Stor’s endurance is its concentration of processing power on wear leveling, error correction, and downtime/drive corruption elimination. As removable, nonvolatile, up-to-512 GB media, the SSDs are built to last in security-critical, rugged environments. For example, the MSD200 and MSD400 members of the TRRUST-Stor family can operate from -40 °C to +85 °C and are successfully stored at -55 °C to +105 °C, with vibration tolerance per MIL-STD-810F. With MTBF of more than 2 million hours and 100 percent burn-in – along with custom form factors and optional ruggedized SATA connectors – these SSDs aim to provide the security and durability needed for fighter aircraft, , avionic, data recorder, ruggedized mobile system, vetronic, mobile manpack, and helicopter applications.
