Subject: [Fwd: full-disk encryption standards released]


Quote from the news article:

"When [the encryption machinery] reads data from the drive,
it displays it to the user in the clear. It's completely
transparent to the user".

The article neglects to mention, its also transparent to an
attacker if he/she has compromised a software layer between
the application and the FDE drive.

Which explains why the CEO of Heartland Payment Systems is
calling for end-to-end encryption now that they have
discovered "encryption religion":

P.S.  Hat tip to Davi for the Heartland link.
