Open Source tool to support OPAL Encryption - Beta release

I have released the first first version of msed that includes a PBA (BIOS machines only)

 

Msed will now allow to turn on and use the built-in encryption on an OPAL compliant drive.  The current version does NOT support sleep (hibernation does work).  If you are planning on using msed to enable encryption on yout drive please follow the optional steps to verify its compatabilitly with your system as the software is still early beta and has been tested on a very limited number of configurations and systems.

 

Instructions on using msed to enable OPAL encryption can be found at http://www.r0m30.com/msed/documentation/managing

 

Executables and the bios PBA can be found at www.r0m30.com/files

Source is available at github.com/r0m30/msed (host management program) and github.com/r0m30/syslinux (Pre boot Authorization code)
