On the flip side of this, the drive can do something that few other solutions can, it can wipe a drive in far less than a second, and do so very securely. If you blank the keys, the data on the drive is completely readable gibberish. This means you go from analysing a platter to cracking AES, a much more complex problem.

What happens if you lose the keys? Normally, you just call the vendor up, beg, and they fix it for you, sometimes at a cost. Seagate essentially told me at IDF that it has a program called SOL to help here. That is, you call them and they tell you you are **** Outa Luck for absolutely no cost. Basically there is no back door, if you lose your keys, game over. The end. Really. Don't say you were not warned.

Yeah...not something I'm going to use in the near future...but for laptops owned by the FBI...I can see where that would be incredibly useful...seeing as how they keep "loosing" them.

Or maybe for servers for corporations, which store important data

I can see how a bunch of senators and priests would see that as useful.<img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" />

Quite useful for a portable hard drive- People who shouldn't be using it won't be able to. And AES is <b>incredibly</b> difficult to crack, if not impossible.
