Superseded Standard

IEEE 1667-2009

IEEE Standard for Authentication in Host Attachments of Transient Storage Devices

This project defines a standard protocol for secure authentication and creation of trust between a secure host and a directly attached Transient and other Storage Devices, such as a USB flash drive, portable hard drive, or cellular phone. The protocol has only an indirect relationship with data integrity/security, and does not directly address issues of authorization and enforcement. The protocol also does not address devices that are attached using a network connection. However, a device that uses a point-to-point wireless connection such as WUSB may comply with this protocol.

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


1667-2006

IEEE Standard Protocol for Authentication in Host Attachments of Transient Storage Devices

This project defines a standard protocol for secure authentication and creation of trust between a secure host and a directly attached Transient Storage Device (TSD), such as a USB flash drive, portable hard drive, or cellular phone. The protocol has only an indirect relationship with data integrity/security, and does not directly address issues of authorization and enforcement. The protocol also does not address devices that are attached using a network connection. However, a device that uses a point-to-point wireless connection such as WUSB may comply with this protocol.

1667-2015

IEEE Standard for Discovery, Authentication, and Authorization in Host Attachments of Storage Devices

Discovery, authentication, and authorization protocols between hosts and storage devices over multiple transports are defined in this standard. It specifies a new Silo Type Identifier (STID) allocation process that uses the IEEE Registration Authority.
