Seagate releases super secure hard drive

The 2.5 inch Momentus 5400 FDE.2 (full disk encryption) drive will be on sale at the end of March. The drive features on the fly encryption integrated into the drive itself using chip acceleration. The user has the power to set a password to access the drive during system boot, but is otherwise unaware that all data at rest is being encrypted and unencrypted transparently. Data is never in clear text except when it is being used by an application.

The drive will be a 80 GB version with a 100GB, 120GB and 160GB version coming soon, all based on a 3Gb/sec SATA interface and spinning at 5400 RPM.
