While there has been a fair amount of advice for you, I'm not sure it is on target.
What did you mean by a SED device? Did you have a specific type in mind (e.g., TCG implementations)?

Thank you,
John Geldman

You have to send SPC trusted receive (IF-RECV) SCSI primary command with discovery payload and handle illegal requests if the drive is not an SED.

There are no vital data pages for SED specific attributes.

Is there a "SCSI" way (non vendor specific) to tell whether a device is an SED one (Self Encrypting Drive)?
I do not mean by P/N etc., but a designated field in a logpage, inquiry, etc.
