Kelly,
IBM LTO4 will be available soon.

In general, LTO encryption works like TS1120 enryption. For TSM it is
exactly the same. Therefore follow the information "TS1120 encryption". See
TSM 5.4 admin and ref guide. Or TS1120 enrcyption redbook.

TSM handles the key and store on the TSM DB, which are need for encrpytion
and send the keys to the tape drives.
Consider not to backup TSM DB with encrypted enabled!

I guess I'll ask the more specific question: has anyone or does anyone
know how to integrate TSM with the soon to be available LTO-4 tape
technology?  Are there plans for such?

IBM folks, feel free to jump in here!

I'll tell you what, get me on the right path and I'll present what I
learn at Oxford this fall...

Hello Kelly,

We are not doing encryption with tape drives, but have been asking the
questions.
My understanding is that lto-3's do not do encryption, have you heard
something different.
The encryption of the lto-4's is listed on the web site www.lto.org.

http://www.lto.org/newsite/html/news_4_11_07.html

"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.

Folks,

I've looked at the Redbook highlighting TS1120 tape encryption to get
the overall idea.

In the more general case of LTO3 and LTO4 drives, which can encrypt
data, how are folks implementing this?

Thanks,
