Issue/Introduction

The S500 has a feature allowing the encryption of all data at rest, or disks and filesystems. There is a security dongle that must be purchased and installed and then a few commands to run.  The steps are simple and can be done on a live system.

Resolution

The S500 configuration guide available at the Broadcom documentation site has the necessary instructions.  Page 17 covers the topic.
