Hardware-based full disk encryption (FDE) is available from many hard disk drive (HDD) vendors, including: Seagate Technology, Hitachi, Western Digital, Samsung, Toshiba and also solid-state drive vendors such as Samsung, Micron and Integral. The symmetric encryption key is maintained independently from the CPU, thus removing computer memory as a potential attack vector. In relation to hard disk drives, the term 'Self-Encrypting Drive' (SED) is in more common usage.
Hardware-FDE has 2 major components: the hardware encryptor and the data store. There are currently 3 varieties of hardware-FDE in common use:
- Hard Disk Drive (HDD) FDE (usually referred to as SED)
- Enclosed hard disk drive FDE
- Bridge and Chipset (BC) FDE

Famous quotes containing the words disk and/or full:
“Unloved, that beech will gather brown,
This maple burn itself away;
Unloved, the sun-flower, shining fair,
Ray round with flames her disk of seed,
And many a rose-carnation feed
With summer spice the humming air;”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
“The full moon
a likeness to your face,
so god destroys it
time and again,
as if to create it
by some other means.”
—Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
