Title (EN) WRITE PROTECTION FOR COMPUTER LONG-TERM MEMORY DEVICES
(FR) PROTECTION CONTRE L'ECRITURE POUR DISPOSITIFS A MEMOIRE A LONG TERME D'ORDINATEUR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A blocking device (203) provides read and write protection for computer long-term storage devices (205), such as hard drives. The blocking device is placed between a host computer (201) and the storage device (205). The blocking device (205) intercepts communications between the host (201) and the storage device (205) and examines any commands from the host to the storage device. Certain commands, such as commands that may modify the storage device, may be discarded.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de blocage (203) qui protège en lecture-écriture des dispositifs à mémoire à long terme d'ordinateur (205), telles que des disques durs. Placé entre un ordinateur hôte (201) et le dispositif à mémoire (205), le dispositif de blocage intercepte des communications entre l'ordinateur hôte (201) et le dispositif à mémoire (205) et examine les commandes émanant de l'ordinateur hôte à destination du dispositif à mémoire. Certaines commandes, telles que des commandes de modification du dispositif à mémoire, peuvent être écartées.
