SecureDisc - Rimage Edition

Password-protected encryption for automated CD & DVD production

SecureDisc - Rimage Edition (SDR) integrates with the Rimage production suite to secure the contents of any DVD or CD using a password. SDR makes it simple to integrate encryption into an existing work flow by automatically encrypting the image data for each disc as part of the automated production process. Discs are encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm, and processed at the image format level for even stronger security. SecureDisc does not require the use of specialized media.

To read encrypted discs, the intended receiver only needs the correct password and does NOT need to download or install any software on their PC. The SecureDisc Explorer decryption client automatically deployed on each encrypted disc supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 (including 64-bit installations) and will automatically launch AUTORUN.INF scripting in the encrypted session once the correct password has been entered.

SDR works with Rimage’s Production Server service as a transparent proxy. When encryption is enabled, SDR automatically intercepts and encrypts the ISO or UDF image for each disc before recording. SDR's unique 'Forced Encryption Mode' can also encrypt every disc production job regardless of the upstream software work flow, eliminating the need to modify any third party applications.

Encryption passwords may be specified per job through Rimage API calls, legacy (Network Publisher/IOF/POF) job requests, a merge field in the label file, a password file included with the disc content or a fixed password that will be used for all discs produced.
