The Inside Secure DAR (previously MatrixDAR) is a high performance, FIPS 140-2-certified encryption solution that protects data-at-rest (DAR) in today’s Android smartphones and tablets. The Inside Secure DAR provides full disk encryption to both the device and its removable storage media. It allows Android device manufacturers to quickly and cost effectively integrate FIPS140-2 certified encryption capabilities to meet the demanding requirements of carriers and governments.
256-bit encryption strength and hardened key management
FIPS and NIST Compliance
FIPS 140-2-certified cryptographic module and NIST compliant key management
Taking full advantage of multi-processors to ensure top performance
The Inside Secure DAR replaces native Android cryptographic libraries with SafeZone FIPS cryptographic module (FIPS140-2 certificate #2389).
The Inside Secure DAR takes special care of properly protecting the encryption key. The key is protected by SafeZone FIPS certified crypto module in compliance with NIST Special Publication 800-132. As the crypto module is running in the user space, the keys are not distributed in both user space and kernel, as in the native Android solution. Instead, only a key identifier is passed to the kernel.
The Inside Secure DAR integrates seamlessly in Android devices to provide higher security without modifying the existing user interface.
Despite using higher-strength encryption, GUARD DAR has consistently delivered a read-and-write performance better than the native Android solution. The data encryption (XTS-AES with 256 bit strength) is accelerated using native instruction set on ARMv8 or on x86 (AES-NI).
