Attacking FDE hardware solutions

Many companies tout hard drives with built in encryption as the solution to the Cold Boot Attack. Additionally, these drives are sold as a major step forward in overall data security. In theory, this sounds like a good idea; in practice this could go horribly wrong.

This project is currently in a research state to find different drives that claim to offer specific security properties. It is expected that many products will fail even the most cursory look.

Please add links to products, vendors, standards, prices and places to purchase hardware. At some point, we'll start acquiring hardware to do specific implementation analysis.
