We are not doing encryption with tape drives, but have been asking the
My understanding is that lto-3's do not do encryption, have you heard something
The encryption of the lto-4's is listed on the web site www.lto.org.
"For additional security, generation 4 supports 256-Bit AES-GCM encryption
capabilities at the tape drive level that are designed to enable the writing of
encrypted data to the LTO Ultrium tape cartridge, helping to protect the
storage and transport of sensitive information. "
I do not know how true it is, but I heard that the lto-4's might use the same
method's as the TS1120.

I've looked at the Redbook highlighting TS1120 tape encryption to get the
In the more general case of LTO3 and LTO4 drives, which can encrypt data, how
are folks implementing this?
