Quantum's Encryption Key Manager (Q-EKM) is an Enterprise proven, easy-to-use solution for managing encryption keys across multiple Quantum libraries. The Q-EKM centralized key manager application operates out of the data path for maximum flexibility and performance to manage the encryption keys used as part of the LTO-4 drive-based data encryption process.The benefits of encrypting data are countless given the potential cost and damage that a data breach of sensitive public data or proprietary corporate Intellectual Property might carry. Q-EKM provides an enterprise proven solution to protecting this valuable data stored on tape both inside and outside of the tape library.Q-EKM is a Java software program that generates, protects, stores, and manages encryption keys supporting multiple libraries in a centralized keystore. These keys are used by the LTO-4 tape drive to encrypt information being written to, and decrypt information being read from, tape media. The Encryption keys pass through the library-to-drive interface; therefore encryption is transparent to the applications. Q-EKM was designed to generate and communicate encryption keys over standard Ethernet based IP for LTO-4 drives in Quantum Libraries across the customer's environment.Enables Q-EKM for a 23U Scalar i500 containing IBM LTO-4 drives. The Scalar i500 library must contain only IBM LTO-4 drives and all partitions must be enabled for encryption. Warranty/service level of Q-EKM must match the service level of the library. Q-EKM Integration Service is also required to install and configure the Q-EKM application.
