TAA and FIPS: Why They Matter When Buying Drives : Technology Point of View
Now more than ever, enhanced data security is a necessity for government agencies and contractors. As such, we need to go beyond safeguarding systems—security must start at the drive level.
Seagate® TAA and FIPS-compliant hard drives and SSDs answer this need, addressing every step of the supply chain, reducing risks and meeting Federal security standards. Understanding TAA TAA (Trade Agreements Act: 19 U.S.C. § 2501–2581) fosters fair and open international trade between nations, requiring that products are produced or undergo “substantial transformation” within the United States or designated country. While TAA compliance is often thought of in relation to storage systems, it also applies to individual components, such as hard drives and SSDs. Approved and Recorded in the Federal Register Seagate’s TAA-compliant solutions for enterprise, desktop and notebook hard drives are the only solutions approved and recorded in the Federal Register. This eliminates the requirement for waivers for TAA storage and meets the encryption requirements set by the US Government for both US Government entities and contractors.
Understanding FIPS 140-2 FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standard, with 2 referring to the version) is part of a set of US Government computer security standards used to approve cryptographic modules and their use within IT systems. It applies to any product that might store or transmit sensitive data, including link encryptors, hard drives, SSDs or other removable storage media. It ensures that a product uses sound security practices, such as approved, strong encryption algorithms and methods. It also specifies how individuals or other processes must be authorized in order to utilize the product, and how modules or components must be designed to securely interact with other systems.
Common Criteria Common Criteria (CC) is an internationally recognized standard (ISO/IEC 15408) for assessing security functionality of information assurance (IA) and IA-enabled products.
