Re: Allow Temporary Automatic Booting EEPC Policy

The best way to understand is to read this blog by McAfee's Dan Larson...

Basically it allows you to enable the ability to automatically decrypt and boot into the OS every time the machine is powered on (or for x number of reboots or until a certain date, etc.).  This doesn't really make for a secure system, but it can make deployment much easier to deal with.  Also, if your organization always does some sort of maintenance or upgrades on certain days that forces a reboot, this is another way to handle allowing a 'free' reboot without the encryption logon getting in the way.
