Extending Full Disk Encryption for the Future

March 3, 2020

Full Disk Encryption (FDE) provides confidentiality of a data-at-rest stored on persistent devices like disk or solid state drives (SSD). Typical examples of widely used FDE systems are Bitlocker on Windows, dm-crypt on Linux and Android, TrueCrypt followers or any self-encrypted drives (SED). Our goal is to show that we can extend FDE to use additional metadata conceptually and provide authenticated encryption on this layer without need to modify any layer above the FDE.
