Where can one find more technical information on the TCG OPAL 2.0 standard regarding how exactly the crypto has to been implemented in self encrypting drives?

I couldn't find OPAL 2.0 implementation technical papers on: https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/resource-directory/

  • I don't believe the standards specify exactly how the encryption must be implemented. Most likely it points to another standard like FIPS. For example, it mentions that keys generated for SED must be generated with a "suitable HWRNG". It doesn't say what the HWRNG's source of randomness must be or the theory of operation, nor whether or not whitening should be applied, etc. – forest Feb 23 '18 at 4:44
