Endpoint Encryption Recovery keys location and backup

Anybody got idea where the endpoint encryption recovery keys (xml file) are stored in EPO? Know I can export from/in EPO but thinking of backing up all the keys at once? Anybody?

I believe they are stored in the ePO database, but I would ask in the EEPC forum for a definitive answer - I'm not an EEPC expert by any stretch of the imagination

Re: Endpoint Encryption Recovery keys location and backup

The EEPC "keys" are stored in the SQL database. The keys are broken up into different tables in the datbase. Exporting direclty from the DB cannot be done. There are API's that can be used to export the keys. There are a couple of pretty good API tools in the Tool Exchange section. With any of these tools you will want to be careful as you are exporting the keys to the kingdom for these systems.

- API Full Disk Encryption Key Exporter is good for single or feeding a list of computers.

- Endpoint Encryption Bulk Key Export Utility does what the name suggests. You can use this utility to do a full dump of all the keys. I have used this for our foresics team. I put this in a secured location with limited access.

For refenrece on the API's you might want to use the ePO API Explorer. Using this will give you the API string to export the XML files.

Hope this helps.
