Fibre Channel has long been known to be a very secure protocol for storage. Even so, there is no such thing as a “perfectly secure” technology, and for that reason it’s important to constantly update and protect against threats.

The sheer variety of environments in which Fibre Channel fabrics are deployed makes it very difficult to simply rely only on physical security. In fact, it’s possible to access different storage systems by different users, even when spanned over several sites. Fibre Channel enables security services to specifically address these concerns, and prevent misconfigurations or access to data by non-authorized people and machines.

Learn how in the next FCIA live webcast on August 27, 2019, Fibre Channel and Security. This webcast is going to dive deep into the security aspects of Fibre Channel, looking closely at the protocols used to implement security in a Fibre Channel fabric. In particular, we’ll discuss:

  • The definitions of the protocols to authenticate Fibre Channel devices
  • What are the different classes of threats, and what are the mechanisms to protect against them
  • What are session keys and how to set them up
  • How Fibre Channel negotiates these parameters to insure frame-by-frame integrity and confidentiality
  • How Fibre Channel establishes and distributes policies across a fabric

Register today to join us to learn more about the technical considerations that Fibre Channel brings to the table to secure and protect your data and information.
