1. An apparatus for transparent end-to-end security of storage data in a client-server environment, the apparatus comprising:

  • a key generator configured to generate a random storage key for each storage construct associated with a storage session, the storage key uniquely associated with the storage construct;

    an encryption module configured to encrypt the storage construct using the storage key and to encrypt the storage key using a transmission key known to a receiver; and

    a communication interface configured to transmit the encrypted storage construct and the encrypted storage key to the receiver, the receiver configured to store the encrypted storage construct on a first storage device, decrypt the encrypted storage key using the transmission key, and store the storage key on a second storage device physically distinct from the first storage device.
