Pro-duo/HDD Camcorder - Encryption???

Does anyone know whether you can encrypt either Sony Pro Duo cards for a digital camera or HDD Camcorders, using Content Encryption?

My organisation have images/video of patients on these devices and would like to know whether it is possible to secure them.

My first instinct would be to say no. But maybe there's someone who knows whether this is possible?

Cheers

if it appears as a storage device, sure of course you can encrypt it with EEFF.

don't expect to be able to view those files on your camera anymore though wink

RE: Pro-duo/HDD Camcorder - Encryption???

Will the 'sbencrypted' folder not mess with the settings on the camera/camcorder?

I do not have any of the proposed devices with me to test.

I doubt it - digital cameras usually just worry about their own data folders, not everything else on the stick.

are you expecting the camera to create encrypted content, or are you asking whether it's possible to store encrypted data (created with EEFF) on a stick shared with a camera? The two are very different.

RE: Pro-duo/HDD Camcorder - Encryption???

Ideally the camera will save its pictures into the 'sbencrypted' folder so that only people with EEFF software on their laptop/desktop can see the pictures.

no, that's not going to work - how would the camera know how to encrypt the file?

RE: Pro-duo/HDD Camcorder - Encryption???

Will the files in the 'sbencrypted' folder not automatically be encrypted when the Pro-duo card is connected to a laptop with EEFF installed on it?

if you're talking about EERM, no, encryption is a function of the application, not the card itself.

if you use the normal method, then yes, the existing content should get encrypted if the policy is set to do so when it's plugged into an EEFF protected PC.
