CLASS LEADING DATA SECURITY

The DiskAshur² SSD Incorporates a Common Criteria EAL 5+ (Hardware Certified) secure microprocessor which enhances security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. The data encryption key is protected by FIPS and Common Criteria validated wrapping algorithms.

DiskAshur² offers ultimate security against hackers, detecting and responding to tampering with features such as:

‚čÖ Dedicated hardware for protection against SPA/DPA/SEMA, DEMA attacks

· Advanced protection against physical attacks, including Active Shield, Enhance Protection Object, CStack checker, Slope Detector and Parity Errors

· Environmental Protection Systems protecting against voltage monitor, frequency monitor, temperature monitor and light protection

· Secure Memory Management/Access Protection

The onboard water resistant keypad is covered with a layer of polymer coating that protects the keys and hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.

Independent User & Admin PINs make it perfect for corporate and government deployment. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN. The Administrator can then allow the User to set a new User PIN.

The diskAshur² has brute force hack defence mechanisms:

First 5 incorrect PIN entries: The drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts.

Next 5 incorrect PIN entries: If the following five (10 in total) consecutive PIN attempts are entered incorrectly again, the diskAshur PRO2¬†will freeze again. To get a further and final five PIN attempts (15 in total), the ‚Äúshift‚ÄĚ button must be pressed whilst inserting the USB cable to the USB port and then an preset PIN will need to be entered.

Last 5 incorrect PIN entries: On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur PRO2 assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

simplicity meets ruggedness

Simply enter a 7-15 digit PIN to authenticate and use as a normal portable Solid State Drive. When the drive is disconnected, all data is encrypted using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption (no software required).

The onboard keypad is covered with a layer of polymer coating that protects the keys and hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.

The drive’s IP56 accreditation means the drive is dust and waterproof.

Product Overview

What is diskAshur2 SSD?

An easy to use ultra-secure, PIN authenticated, portable USB 3.1 hard drive with real-time AES 256-bit XTS hardware encryption, software free design and super-fast data transfer speeds. The diskAshur2 SSD has an easy-to-use keypad design enabling you to securely access the drive with your own unique 7-15 digit PIN and with software free setup and operation, the diskAshur2 SSD is platform/device independent and works across all operating systems including all versions of MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients and embedded systems. In fact, it will work on any device with a USB port! One of the unique and underlying security features of the GDPR compliant diskAshur2 SSD is the dedicated hardware based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass attacks and more. Unlike other solutions, the diskAshur2 SSD reacts to an automated attack by entering the deadlock frozen state, which renders all such attacks as useless. In plain and simple terms, without the PIN there’s no way in!

EDGETM (Enhanced Dual Generating Encryption) Technology

Offering advanced portable data security via built-in FIPS PUB 197 validated AES 256-bit XTS hardware encryption engine. The data encryption key is randomly generated by a Common Criteria EAL4+ ready Random Number Generator and protected by NCSC, FIPS and Common Criteria validated wrapping algorithms. Uniquely featuring a dedicated on-board Common Criteria EAL4+ ready secure microprocessor to enhance security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. The security component employs physical protection mechanisms to protect itself from any external tamper, bypass laser attacks and fault injections and incorporates active-shield violation technology. More specifically, the secure microprocessor reacts to all forms of automated hacking attempts by entering the deadlock frozen state where the device can only restart through a ‚ÄėPower On‚Äô reset procedure (i.e. power off/power on). The security lock feature protects the device against any unauthorised firmware modifications from the host side (fully protected against BadUSB). The diskAshur2¬†SSD uniquely incorporates a secure microprocessor providing secure algorithms to encrypt both the data and the encryption key, giving you confidence that your data is protected to the highest standards at any given time.

 

FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm

Employing AES 256-bit XTS hardware encryption, the iStorage diskAshur2 SSD seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.

 

Super-fast USB 3.1

With super-fast USB 3.1 data transfer speeds of 294 MBps (Read) and 319 MBps (Write), you can now access your files faster than ever before. The iStorage diskAshur2 SSD is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.

 

Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism

The iStorage diskAshur2¬†SSD is intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of Brute Force attacks. After five consecutive incorrect PIN entries the drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts. If a further five (10 in total) consecutive incorrect PIN attempts are entered again, the diskAshur2¬†SSD will freeze again. To get a further and final five PIN attempts (15 in total), the ‚Äúshift‚ÄĚ button must be pressed whilst inserting the USB cable to the USB port and then an iStorage preset PIN will need to be entered. On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur2¬†SSD assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

 

Self Destruct Feature

You can pre-program the diskAshur2 SSD with your own unique Self Destruct PIN which, once implemented, instantly deletes the encryption key, all PINs, data and then creates a new encryption key.

 

Drive Reset Feature

The iStorage diskAshur2 SSD also employs a useful drive reset feature, which can be implemented with a unique command. This clears all PINs and data, and creates a new randomly generated encryption key, enabling the drive to be reset and redeployed as many times as needed.

 

Unattended Auto-Lock Feature

Set the unattended diskAshur2 SSD to automatically lock after a pre-determined amount of time.

 

Tamper Proof Design

In addition to incorporating a secure microprocessor, encrypting the data and the encryption key, the diskAshur2 SSD adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. All the components of the diskAshur2 SSD are completely covered by a layer of super tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. This barrier prevents a potential hacker from accessing the critical components and launching a variety of futile attacks.

 

Data at rest protection

All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.

 

Wear Resistant Epoxy Coated Keypad

Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur2 SSD wear resistant epoxy coated keypad hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
