I own a Samsung 980 Pro which, according to its own specification, supports Class 0, TCG/Opal 2.0 and IEEE16667. Since it's an NVMe drive, I cannot use hdparm in order to set up class 0 encryption but the UEFI of my Dell Notebook does.
I am aware of the fact that it's important to set the security level to maximum when dealing with Class 0 encryption drives which I did with hdparm in the past. The UEFI of my notebook provides a function called "Master Password Lockout" which seems to be doing just that.
Now to my questions:
- Am I correct in assuming that ATA security is still present for Class 0-capable NVMe drives and only the interface is different?
- Since hdparm doesn't seem to work, how can I send ATA Security commands to my NVMe SSD? I'm speficically interested in finding out, if the security level has indeed been set to maximum.
