Self-Encrypting SSD hard drive vulnerabilities - Lenovo: do you supply affected products?

2018-11-06, 18:08 PM

Per the advisory at https://www.ru.nl/publish/pages/909282/advisory.pdf   some self-encrypting hard drives, including some by Samsung, have serious vulnerabilities. 

Lenovo supplies Samsung PCI-NVMe SSDs.

Specifically, my ThinkPad P51 has a Samsung MZVPW256HEGL-000L7 drive installed.

This drive supports the TCG OPAL2 self-encrypting hard drive standard, which the advisory linked above indicates many drives do not implement correctly.

We need to know whether this (and other) SSDs supplied by Lenovo suffer this vulnerability, and, if so, how to check on each system whether hardware encryption is in use, and, if so, what is the least impactful way to switch from hardware encryption to software encryption to remove the vulnerability.

Hello,

 

I have not seen anything announced there yet, but I would suggest keeping an eye on Lenovo's Product Security Advisories page at https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/home for any announcements.
