About Enhanced Storage
Enhanced Storage currently supports devices implementing the IEEE 1667 standard (http://www.ieee1667.com) which defines a mechanism of storage target authentication prior to data access. Even more useful is the fact that the standard also defines a generic mechanism by which any customized function implemented by the storage device can be discovered and accessed. For more information on Enhanced Storage, see Overview of the Enhanced Storage Certificate Management Tool.
Enhanced Storage provides Windows applications with methods to:
- Discover and access additional functions available on an Enhanced Storage device.
- Discover and invoke function-specific workflow called action for an Enhanced Storage device.
- Authenticate access to an Enhanced Storage device that supports device authentication.
