Abstract: The IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700 Series is the latest in the line of tape virtualization products that has revolutionized the way mainframe customers utilize their tape resources. Security of the information stored on the backstore tape cartridges has become important to many customers. The IBM System Storage TS11xx Tape Drive family was enhanced to support data encryption in September 2006. This white paper describes the use of data encryption on these tape drives when attached to the TS7700.
