Do you really need it ?
Modern SSDs (at least the ones made by Intel, Samsung) always encrypt all stored data using AES. The encryption key used is stored in nonvolatile memory on the SSD. One of the reasons for this is that to securely wipe the drive now you just need to overwrite the encryption key with a new random one
You can protect the encryption key by BIOS HDD (ATA) password.

Yes, it is encrypted, but, if you don't set a PW in the BIOS, you can simply connect the disk to another machine and it can be read directly.

@someotherguy, which Intel SSD Pro Administrator tool argument did you use? I tried with "show" and I got "Opal State : Drive is not an Intel SSD" on a MZVPV256HDGL-000L7.

Thanks for the info, someotherguy.
I checked WinMagic, but it appears that SecureDoc is an enterprise solution, not for single PCs.
I'll try loading the Intel tool on my system.
There is a stand alone version for $US108 which doesn't sound to expensive.
Am I correct to assume that runing WinMagic SecureDoc on Windows, one would get SED support for SSDs like Samsung 960 Pro/Evo? Can't find it here though:
