Virtual Zeroization

Unique protection for vulnerable data in uncontrolled environments, with one-time pad encryption and automatic key destruction

Product Sheet

qProtect Overview

qProtect is a unique solution for data security in uncontrolled environments, protecting it even in the event of theft or loss. It offers a much-needed practical solution for the protection of critical mobile data. Automatic secure erasure of one-time key material when recording data – “virtual zeroization” – protects confidential information wherever it is, now and into the future

qProtect Specs

• Standard form factors: 32GByte SD Card / 8GByte microSD Card
• Storage densities from 16 to 256GByte

Automatic Key Destruction (Zeroization):
• The one-time pad key on the device is automatically destroyed during encryption
• Removes need for data destruction or additional zeroization steps
• Data remains accessible to authorized users for decryption in a secure location

• Delivered with qClient SDK, a software development kit adhering to the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) and the PKCS#11 API.

Standards & Interoperability:
• KMIP 1.0/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/2.0
• Basic and advanced KMIP profiles
• Supports PKCS#11 over KMIP via qClient SDK

qProtect Benefits

• Automatic key destruction from the storage device during encryption
• Data integrity: the data is safe from unauthorized access, but is not destroyed, and can be accessed by authorized personnel in a secure location
• One-time pad encryption using a quantum generated true random key
• Tamper-resistance: any attempts to modify the encrypted data will be visible upon decryption
