PacsCube with Encryption...

Media Security and Encrypted DICOM CDs are of interest to many organisations as patient privacy issues have become a major concern. These concerns have forced a number of organizations, such as the  NHS (National Health Services), to mandate encryption on removable media. Although many of these organizations have differing ideas on how to implement encryption, DatCard has chosen to implement AES 256-bit (Advanced Encryption Security) throughout its suite of products.

AES-256 is an encryption standard currently being considered for use by DICOM. AES encryption allows discs to be decrypted without loading specialized software on the receiving computer. When a user attempts to open an encrypted disc, they will be prompted to enter a password. If the password is supplied correctly, the viewer will automatically decrypt the images and display them without loading any additional software. This is in contrast to many other methods of disc encryption, which require the loading of proprietary software on a PC by someone with administrative user privileges.
