SCSI Tape Encryption Manager - Manages encryption on LTO 4 and LTO 5 tape drives with hardware-based encryption. Program should work on any other SSP capable tape drives. Built specifically for Linux and AIX. Now supports key change auditing and key descriptors (uKAD). Check the Project News under the Develop section for more information.

Excellent, easy to use utility for using HW compression on LTO-4 and higher drives. Great work, thank you !
I used this in RHEL7 to enable hardware encryption on a Quantum LTO-5 tape drive. It worked great. Thank you for providing such an excellent and light-weight utility. This was a great alternative to bloated commercial enterprise backup software for the simple task of enabling hardware encryption on the tape drive. 5 stars!
