Addonics RNG software suite - for programming HMAC or standard cipher key

The Addonics CipherKey Programming tool is an optional software utility for managing your own Cipher key code or making duplicates of Cipher keys for all Addonics SATA based hardware encryption products. The software is designed to work with any Addonics 6G SATA encryption products such as the CipherChain II, Diamond Cipher II and Sapphire Cipher II hardware. Operation is simple. A cipher key to be programmed or the master key that needs to be duplicated is first inserted into the Cipher key socket of the Addonics 6G SATA encryption device, launched the program and follow the on screen instruction.

The Basic version of this software allows unlimited programming and duplication of the standard Cipher key. The support of HMAC (hash message authentication code) key is an advanced feature included in the PRO version.

The HMAC key does not store any key code and works only in Addonics 6G SATA encryption hardware family of devices. Its authentication requires two ways communication with the 6G SATA encryption engine and the original encrypted hard drive. The HMAC key cannot be duplicated. The original key file, generated by the Addonics RNG software PRO, is required to program additional HMAC key. So when a HMAC key is lost or stolen, the key code cannot be copied or hacked.

RNG Software PRO is an advanced version included in the purchase of 30, 50 or 100 units of the HMAC key license. The license also comes with a license key dongle that control the number of HMAC key files generated. The system must have one USB port available for the key dongle in order to use the RNG software PRO.

Cipher Key duplicating system (ASWRNGSYS)

The following is a suggested Cipher Key duplicating system that includes the Sapphire Cipher II with USB 3.1 interface (model: SSN6G-256U31) and the Addonics RNG software suite. This new duplicating system replaces the previous cipher key duplicator, model AACSYSU2. The Sapphire Cipher II is an external USB 3.1 drive cartridge system with 6G SATA hardware encryption. It can be used to encrypt any SATA 35" HDD or with addditional adapters to encrypt 2.5" HDD/SSD, mSATA, M2, CF, CFast, 1.8" HDD/SSD and slim SATA SSD.

  • Basic version - program or duplicate standard Cipher key
  • PRO version - Basic version features plus ability to program HMAC key. This version is included with the purchase of miminum of 30 units HMAC keys
  • Required hardware:
    • Addonics 6G SATA encryption device - External CipherChain II, CipherChain II, Diamond Cipher II, Sapphire Cipher II, Cipher II Snap-In
    • A Windows 10 system equipped with SATA, eSATA or USB 3.1/3.0/2.0 port for connecting with the 6G SATA encryption device
    • PRO version requires a USB port for the license key dongle
  • Supported OS: Windows 10

Software functions:

  • KeyGen - generate a random number BIN file
  • Number of key files - the number of BIN files generated at one time by the KeyGen command
  • Start Programming - write the BIN file into the cipher key
  • Duplicate - This function supports only the standard cipher key, part # AAENKEY256 or AAENKEY256-2. HMAC key cannot be duplicated
    • Read the code off the existing cipher key
    • Write the code onto another cipher key. This will also write over the existing code in the cipher key and the process is not reversible.
  • I2C HMAC key Token - feature of the PRO verion. This feature also requires HMAC cipher key, which is different from the stand cipher key. A separate license is required for programming a HMAC key
