Microsemi obtains NIST certification for AES encryption on TRRUST-Stor SSD

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., 30 Aug. 2012. Microsemi Corp. (Nasdaq: MSCC), a provider of semiconductors based in Aliso Viejo, Calif., has achieved National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification for the advanced encryption standard (AES) algorithm on its secure TRRUST-Stor solid state drive designed for critical data storage. TRRUST-Stor is a solid state drive that has hardware-implemented AES encryption with a 256-bit key using the XTS block cipher mode. Together with additional security features that include sanitization protocols, Microsemi's proprietary Armor processor and TRRUST-Purge technology that renders data forensically unrecoverable in less than 30 milliseconds, the TRRUST-Stor drive provides maximum security in a small form factor.


NIST certification provides potential customers with an added level of assurance that their sensitive data is safely stored.

Microsemi's proprietary SSD design provides data integrity and endurance by focusing processing power on error correction, wear leveling, and eliminating drive corruption and unscheduled downtime. This failure prevention methodology protects data from catastrophic failures in critical applications and provides an extra layer of protection.

The TRRUST—Stor solid state drive family features up to 512 gigabyte host non-volatile removable media. These SSDs are designed for reliability, performance and security in applications requiring high data security and rugged environments, such as military embedded systems. The drives are also available with ruggedized SATA connectors. All design and manufacturing for the TRRUST-Stor family is done in the U.S. in Microsemi's trusted facility.

The AES encryption technology was validated by InfoGard Laboratories, Inc. and certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The certification will appear on the NIST site here.
