Major Version Change Announcement
Thales is working on a new version, CipherTrust Transparent Encryption UserSpace v10.0, planned for release in Q4 2022. It will be data format compatible with the CipherTrust Transparent Encryption (CTE) kernel module. The CipherTrust Manager
configuration workflows will move to the API interface /v1/transparent-encryption/ from
CipherTrust Transparent Encryption UserSpace 10.0 will only support CipherTrust Manager as a key manager. SafeNet KeySecure Classic will no longer be supported. CTE UserSpace 9.4.0.000 will be the last release to support the ProtectFile & Transparent Encryption UserSpace tile on the CipherTrust Manager GUI. Going forward, the CTE UserSpace 10.0 configuration will be
supported only with the Transparent Encryption tile on the CipherTrust Manager GUI.
Customers will not be required to migrate their encrypted data with this version change. Migration tools will be
available with CTE UserSpace 10.0 to help migrate the CTE UserSpace policies and configuration to
/v1/transparent-encryption/ (CTE policies).
