stand alone disk encryption

I have systems that are not on any network (in a SCIF) and need to be FIPS encrypted. What is the best way to do this with Drive encryption?

Re: stand alone disk encryption

Hi User35094077,

You are able to move the machines first as a non-FIPS MDE client to communicate with an FIPS ePO.

1. Start to transfer the agent from the non-FIPS ePO to the FIPS mode ePO
Note: MDE will still function but will not be in FIPS mode.

2. Start with a few machines to reinstall MDE
Note: You will need to reinstall in MDE in FIPS mode and at that point you can be FIPS compliant

Prerequisites to use Drive Encryption in FIPS mode

Thank you.
