Sun Releases Open Source Standard for Storage Encryption

,----[ Quote ]
| Sun Microsystems has released what it claims is the world's first generic 
| communication protocol between a Key Manager and an encrypting device into an 
| open source community. The protocol is implemented as a complete toolkit and 
| is downloadable from the OpenSolaris website.   
| Governments, finance, healthcare, retail and other vertical markets need to 
| comply with current regulatory laws that create mandates to protect sensitive 
| stored data. To support these requirements, this protocol is available to 
| customers using the Sun StorageTek KMS 2.0 Key Manager and Sun StorageTek 
| T9840D, T10000A, T10000B Enterprise Drives, as well as Sun StorageTek HP LTO4 
| drives shipped in Sun libraries. A number of additional partners are 
| developing products based on this protocol, including EMC, whose RSA security  
| division has talked about releasing it as an option on their RKM Key Manager.

Symantec antivirus makes encrypted files inaccessible on Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft is plugging the Encrypted File System (EFS) feature on
| Vista for mobile users as an important security enhancement. It's
| potentially a good thing too, in case your notebook gets stolen,
| but it's something of a nightmare scenario if popular antivirus
| programs like Symantec don't play nicely with it.
