A signal bearing medium tangibly embodying a program of machine-readable instructions executable by a processor to perform operations for verifying a decryption of an encrypted user data key used to encrypt user data prior to an encryption of the user data key with an encryption key, the operations comprising:
decrypting the encrypted user data key with a decryption key in response to an initiation of a decryption of the encrypted user data with the user data key as decrypted with the description key;
decrypting a verification text with the user data key as decrypted with the decryption key;
validating a use of the user data key as decrypted with the decryption key to decrypt the encrypted user data in response to a matched comparison of the verification text as decrypted with the user data key and an intermixing of a known text and a random text; and
invalidating the use of the user data key as decrypted with the decryption key to decrypt the encrypted user data in response to a mismatched comparison of the verification text as decrypted with the user data key and the intermixing of the known text and the random text.
