FAQ

DiskCrypt M10 is a USB 3.1 encryption M.2 Secure Storage Device (SSD). It provides access control via two-factor authentication using a smart card and data-at-rest security via hardware-based full disk encryption.

It is very simple and straightforward. Connect DiskCrypt M10 to your computer via the USB cable provided. Insert your smart card and enter PIN. You may access your data just like any other normal USB enclosures. No software installation is required at all.

Yes, you can still access the data from the SSD so long the existing smart card is present. If DiskCrypt M10 is malfunction, remove the M.2 SSD and install in a replacement unit. As the encryption keys are stored inside the smart card, you have to use the existing smart card and *re-initialize with the replacement unit with the existing PIN. You may continue to access your data with the replacement unit as per normal. *refer to DiskCrypt M10 User Manual (Section 4.2.1 Smart Card Initialization) for the steps.

Yes, DiskCrypt M10 employs Full Disk Encryption (FDE). Every single byte and sector of your SSD is encrypted.

DiskCrypt M10 offers AES (acronym of Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption scheme with a key-strength of 256 bits.

The PINs are smart card specific. Although the smart cards come with the same default factory PIN, you can *change to 2 different PINs.
*refer to DiskCrypt M10 User Manual (Section 4.1 PIN Change) for the steps.

Yes, the PIN can be easily changed during the time of *authentication without any data loss. Please note that PINs are smart card specific. By changing the PIN with one smart card does NOT automatically change the PIN of another.
*refer to DiskCrypt M10 User Manual (Section 3.1 Authentication) for the steps.

The smart cards contain the encryption key of the installed SSD. The key is protected by your PIN. Hence, your drive is secure so long your PIN is not compromised. If you lose your 1st card, please continue to use the 2nd card to access your drive. You may wish to purchase additional cards, and/or our DiskCrypt Key Management System to duplicate cards.

Due to security implementations, it is not possible to duplicate another smart card if both smart cards are lost. Hence, it is advisable to purchase additional cards and/or our DiskCrypt Key Management System to duplicate cards if you lose one of the smart cards.

The data in the SSD are encrypted. Without the authenticated smart card and PIN, one is unable to decrypt the data.

Due to security implementations, it is not possible to access the data in the SSD without the authenticated smart card and PIN. Hence, we encourage customers to keep one smart card with default factory PIN in a secured location as backup.

You will be allowed 8 attempts before the smart card is locked out. Please ensure that you have the correct PIN to the smart card.

Due to security implementations, it is not possible to unlock the smart card. Please ensure that you have the correct PIN to the smart card. Hence, we encourage customers to keep one smart card with default factory PIN in a secured location as backup.

Two-factor authentication is an authentication protocol that requires two independent methods to establish one’s identity and privileges. DiskCrypt M10 implements two-factor authentication by requiring that the user have the associated smart card (something you have) and knowledge of the PIN (something you know). This offers stronger security than traditional password or hardware key only security.

Two-factor authentication offers stronger security than traditional password, biometric or hardware key/token only systems. Should your smart card be stolen/lost along with your DiskCrypt M10, your data will still be secure as the PIN is only known to you.
