Front LCD Power, secure traffic/management port, client-side network, storage-side network, unit alarm, power alarm, environmental alarm, smart card reader
Smart Card 1 smart card reader
Hardware Redundancy 2 redundant/hot-swappable power supplies, 2 variable-speed fans
Clustering and Failover

Clustering for full redundancy and automatic failover

Clustered StorageSecure appliances share critical configuration information to provide failover and load balancing support for the network.


FIPS-PUB 186: AES-256 (Advanced Encryption Standard with 256-bit keys)

PRNG implemented using FIPS 186-2: (general-purpose; x-change notice; SHA-1). Uses the SafeXcel 1746 crypto-device TRNG for providing entropy to seeding the PRNG.

Operating System Highly customized, hardened OS
Configurable Security Policy Fully customizable security settings
Crypto-shredding A single command will zeroize all keys, effectively making access to encrypted data impossible

Administrator User name/password for device management. An additional hardware authentication token is required for access to functions such as key and data recovery, key sharing, and clustering operations. Multi-person quorum-based authentication for sensitive security operations such as recovery, initialization, and establishing trusted relationships may also be implemented.

Management Interfaces
Management Platform Manage all StorageSecure and KeySecure appliances from a single management console.
Management console uses optional two-factor authentication with role-based administration.
Supported Protocols
  • CIFS
  • NFS
Supported Directory Services
  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • LDAP
  • NIS
StorageSecure Management Console Graphical user interface (GUI) available via web browser that is capable of high-grade 128-bit encryption. JavaScript must be enabled to access all functionality available through the management console.
Command Line Interface (CLI) Command line interface (CLI) available over SSH or directly through the serial console port.
SNMP SNMP v1, v2c, and v3
Logging and Audit Cryptographically signed tracking of key events. Configurable audit trail with local and remote (syslog) logging.

Operating Temperature 32°F-104°F (0°C to 40°C)
Operating Humidity 20% to 80% RH @ 40°C operating temperature
Operating Altitude 0 to 1650m AMSL
