What is Shared Password?

Jump to solution

Hi There,

In DLP Setting> Shared Password, I have 2 questions regarding to the Shared Password:

1, Is there has a default Shared Password value?

2, What's the Shared Password used for?

I'm trying to go through the product guide but there seems don't have many details on this.

 

Thanks in advance.

@eg211 Thanks for choosing Support Community.

Shared Password Specifies the override password for uninstalling the software, removing files from quarantine, encrypting evidence, and temporary client bypass.
Note: In McAfee DLP Discover, the password is used for encrypting evidence only.

 

Refer to: https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/data-loss-prevention-11.0.000-interface-reference-guide-epolicy-orche...

By default the password is empty, you have to set it.

Don't think so, DLP only uses the policy exported via "ePO-> DLP Settings-> Backup&Restore-> Backup to file" for backup and restore purpose.

@farhook14 No. Policy can be exported and restored through DLP Policy back up from Backup&Restore option in DLP Settings.
