Managing Storage Device Data

Information such as files in the Mail Box, Address Book data, existing job data, and password information are saved to the storage device of the machine. The machine encrypts this information, preventing it from being read by unauthorized users. The machine is also equipped with the Canon MFP Security Chip, which complies with the FIPS 140 Level 2 security standard established by the U.S. government. The Canon MFP Security Chip is certified as a cryptographic module under the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) established by the U.S. and Canada. The certification given to the Canon MFP Security Chip ensures that results of the standardized test show the conformity of the test subject with the prescribed standards.
The TPM setting can also be used to encrypt the password information and certificate information managed in the memory.
Storage device data encryption on the machine may not be able to protect data from all unauthorized activity. Exercise caution when managing data.
Encrypted data cannot be read even if you remove the storage device and install it in another Canon multifunction printer.
This machine generates 256-bit encryption keys using a NIST SP 800-90A random number generation method. For encryption, the machine uses an AES algorithm in accordance with FIPS PUB 197.
