Diamond Cipher II for 3.5"/2.5" SATA HDD/SSD

The Diamond Cipher II drive kit is one of the new Addonics full disk encryption solutions that encrypts and decrypts at the full SATA 6G speed. Designed to be compatible with the original Diamond Cipher drive installation, the Diamond Cipher II drive kits share the same drive enclosure, drive cradle and cipher key. The new 6G AES 256-bit crypto engine is also FIPS 140-2 certified to ensure absolute data security should the drive get stolen or lost. The Diamond Cipher drive kit is simple to use. There is no password to remember, no software or driver needed, no special training is needed. The best of all, the Diamond Cipher drive kit is 100% OS transparent for easy implementation into any computing environment for absolute data security.

Security
The Diamond Cipher II 6G SATA hardware encryption is a full disk encryption solution, meaning that the boot sector, partition table, and all the information in the drive are encrypted. If the encrypted drive is stolen and connected to another system, the drive will appear as a brand new drive with no trace of any data. For further security enhancement, the 6G SATA encryption products also support HMAC (hash message authentication code) key.

Use as a Cipher key programmer
The Diamond Cipher II 6G SATA encryption products can be used for programming or duplicating the Cipher key code using the Addonics RNG software utility (a software sold separately. This allows users to manage their own key code and is highly recommended for multiple units deployment.

Choice of standard Cipher (SC) key or HMAC key (Key-Hashed Message Authentication Code)
The standard Cipher key stores the cipher code in plain text. Addonics first generation of  Diamond Cipher, CipherChain and Ruby Cipher can only be authenticated with this SC key. This type of key is also compatible with the 6G SATA encryption product. Although you can use the same key code for both the 6G SATA encryption products and the Addonics first generation Cipher products, the encrypted hard drives are not compatible. In other words, drives encrypted in any of the 6G SATA encryption products cannot be attached to the first generation of Cipher product and vice versa.

The cipher code in the HMAC key is encrypted. Its authentication requires two ways communication with the 6G SATA encryption engine and the originally encrypted hard drive. The HMAC key cannot be duplicated. The original key file, generated by the Addonics RNG software suite, is required to program additional HMAC key. So when a HMAC key is lost or stolen, the key code cannot be copied or hacked.
