    In the light of recent laptops theft and data security breaches, large
    corporations and government institutions are looking at various Full
    Disc Encryption (FDE) solution to protect their confidential data on
    mobile devices. While it may be easy to choose and implement a Full
    Disk Encryption in a small office, it is not the case with large
    institutions. These institutions are struggling with the design and
    architecture of the FDE and key management solutions. The design has
    to account for the key management solution in case of accidental
    destruction of the encryption key or employee leaving the company
    without handing over the encryption tokens/keys. The design also has
    to account for requirements for proper imaging of the HDD in case the
    OS and all the data have to be revived to its original form. Hardware
    Token and USB Key as a mean of authentication is also a point of
    discussion.

    There are multiple tools available in the market that allow for full
    disk encryption. However they vary greatly. They are divided into two
    main categories - hardware based and software based. The hardware
    based full disk encryption solutions are considerably faster than the
    software based solutions, and usually produce no overhead for the CPU
    or the HDD. The software based solutions, while inexpensive, create
    considerable overhead for the CPU depending on the type of encryption
    used.

    A limited number of full disk encryption solutions also support
    Trusted Platform Module to tie the encrypted HDD to a particular
    platform. TPM can make the key recovery possible and simplify single
    sign on.

    To address the questions and concerns mentioned above I have decided
    to create a mailing list dedicated to Full Disk Encryption Technology
    and Key Management solutions.
