Volatile Block Locking
Prevents unexpected program or erase of the flash array from poorly written software or during device power-up — without wearing out arrays — by treating areas with temporary write protection as read-only.
Nonvolatile Block Locking
Protects against accidental or malicious programming or erasing, with functionality dependent on the memory family; the PROTECT command can be used to permanently protect blocks from programming and erasing.
Unique ID – A 32- or 64-bit serial number programmed into Micron’s NAND and NOR Flash devices that cannot be replaced or modified
Provides a fixed value stored in the memory device, enabling component authentication techniques to reduce component swapping and creating a relationship between the processor and memory to prevent cloning.
Password Protect Block Locking
Protects blocks from being modified — even when power is removed or the device is reset — by requiring a 64- or 128-bit password.
ATA Password (SSDs Only)
Prevents access to an SSD during power-up by requiring a password; the ATA password is hidden in an area of the drive (not software) that is inaccessible to users.
AES256 Encryption (SSDs Only)
Encrypts data in flight and data at rest using a symmetrical encryption algorithm that is a standard in the U.S. and Canada; if correctly implemented, AES256 is impossible to break within a lifetime without extraordinary (and highly unlikely) processing power.
Sanitize and Secure Removal
Protects deleted data and previous versions of data by physically erasing the data and reprograming “dummy” data on top of it to ensure that the data is not recoverable.
