Quite a bit of encryption stuff today ...Hardware versus software encryption. According to Girard, hardware-based encryption promises significant performance improvements over software-based technologies, and the new Trusted Computing Group (TCG) open standard offers a common management specification for hard-drive manufacturers. However, there is a lack of real-world products using the standard, he says. Hardware encryption will continue to evolve, he says, and future choices will appear in other device subsystems, such as CPUs or supporting chip sets.
