I understand that most SSDs which support encryption usually encrypt all data, but that only some actually encrypt the encryption key with a user BIOS password. This means that the models which don't do that can be circumvented by moving to a new computer.. is this correct??
To me this seems like little more than a deterrent - no different to setting a BIOS password on a non-encrypted drive. Is there something I am missing (apart from when disposing of old drives i.e. secure wipe)?
If my previous thoughts are correct, then my big question is - Is there a list of which models/brands are actually secure (i.e. use the user password to encrypt the encryption key)??
I have heard that Intel is the only brand, but there seems to be very little information about this.
Thanks for any input!
