I would like to check whether the algorithm that is used to encrypt my SSD drive is actually AES-128.
I wanted to read the raw disk data, encrypt them myself and then diff the data against the encrypted disk data to check if there is a difference or not. I have found the article that states:
The Encryption Key never leaves the device and is known only by the drive itself. Not even the drive manufacturer knows the value of the Encryption Key.
Since I cannot access the Encryption Key, the verification process described above cannot be performed.
How can I make sure the manufacturer of the SSD that advertises AES-128 encryption does not in fact use some other algorithm?
