About

XTS is a block cipher mode of operation, which is most commonly used when random accessible data (like a hard disk or RAM) is to be encoded.

In January 2010, XTS-AES was added by NIST in SP800-38E: "Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation: The XTS-AES Mode for Confidentiality on Storage Devices."
