Abstract [en]

This thesis focused on testing whether persistent encryption of Fibre Channel is doable and what kind of security it provides. It has been shown that intercepting, analysing and modifying Fibre Channel traffic is possible without any noticeable performance loss as long as latency is kept within certain boundaries. If latency are outside those boundaries extreme performance loss are to be expected. This latency demand puts further restrictions on the cryptography to be used.

Two platforms were simulated, implemented and explained. One for intercepting and modifying Fibre Channel and one for analysing Fibre Channel traffic using Linux and Wireshark.
