Wednesday: May 15, 2019

NORCROSS, GEORGIA - American Megatrends, International LLC (AMI), a global leader in BIOS, BMC and remote management tools and utilities, is pleased to announce its support for the Pyrite Security Subsystem Class (SSC) version 2.00 in its flagship Aptio® V UEFI Firmware.

In late 2018, the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) released the Pyrite SSC v2.00 specification, which was extended to allow support for storage devices with certain Data Removal features, making it compatible with other Opal family SSCs and achieves feature parity with the ATA Security Feature Set. This Data Removal feature supports user data removal without requiring encryption.

The Pyrite SSC v2.00 specification brings a variety of new features and enhanced capabilities, including the mandatory PSID Feature Set, which includes a selectable data removal mechanism, updated rules on the side effects of the Revert and RevertSP methods and the addition of a KeepData parameter to the RevertSP method.
